The Words: 3304 written today. I knew I was going to be gone from 8-10 pm, which is some of my prime writing time, so I wrote a couple of 15-minute sprints around 5:30, before supper. I was at 1593 words for the day when I did get back to the computer in the evening, and I realized that I was only around 3000 words away from reaching 50k. I pushed forward, hoping to make that tonight. Then the ceiling in the room I was in started dripping, and the distraction from taking care of that made the writing a lot less productive than I was hoping for. But I’m coming in today with just a few thousand shy of the win.
(And spoiler for tomorrow, I did keep going and reached 50k at about 12:30 am!)
The Story: It’s the busiest day of the reenactment, and the crowd is abuzz with rumors about everything that’s happened during the week. Then there’s a battle, complete with cannons and muskets and fallen soldiers. Only one of the soldiers doesn’t get back up when the battle is over.
Total word count: 48,793
