I don't see time for writing today, or editing, or blogging. About the only thing I'd like to do if I can find the time is to edit the blog post I've been working on to make it shorter and flow better. I need to have it done by Sunday.

I have a new chapter to get started. I think I know where it needs to begin, therefore my aim is 1k. Don't want to go in overly zealous. If it is flowing, then 2k is a fair mark.

Well, last night I crossed the 60K mark on my WIP. So today I need to read it and look for plot-holes. If there aren't any giant ones, I may declare the draft complete!

"My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears. And true plain hearts do in the faces rest. Where can we find two better hemispheres? Without sharpe North, without declining west. Whatever dies was not mix'd equally. If our two loves be one and thou and I love so alike, that none can slacken, none can die." --John Donne

I'm happy to say I just finished my chapter for the day. I don't know that I've ever written 3k words in a single day. I try to write a chapter a day, each being 1200-2000 words. I think the longest yet was probably 2200.

As I feared, nothing done. I was too busy preparing for company (who have arrived safely, yeah!!).

I didn't write anything yesterday, but I did read-more than 3 chapters. I also worked on crits and while I didn't finish anyone's, I did work on about 5 different ones. So, not as successful as I was hoping for, but not too bad either.
