I'm still working on yesterday's goal. Hubby is way too practical. I also need to do some more research, and my goal for today is to choose a city to place the novel.

I can't seem to get past the 1k mark. I need 2k a day if there is any hope of finishing this novel in a reasonable amount of time.

Good call on the 2nd April 9th. My first one wasn't so great, the second April 9th has gone much better.
