Daily Word Count – Feb 15, 2016


Woke up this morning pumped to try to dig through my paper files and find a hard copy (complete) of a manuscript I worked on from 2007ish-2011. Only found incomplete copies, and nothing complete on the hard drive (thus far). Bummed.

With that failure behind me, I struggled to continue to be productive today. I managed to read 50 or so pages in the complete journals of LMM, and then finish writing a post (I’m working a couple of weeks’ out) about what I’ve read so far.

I’m wanting to go home now, the day behind me, and come up with some kind of creative background image so there’s a recurring “featured image” for these posts.  What do you think of either a) a screenshot of my desktop? or b) a series of graphics that are generic like thumb’s up, thumb’s down, etc, to give you an idea, at a glance, of how the day went?  I’m leaning towards the former.

Total word count for today: 418 words.

February 2016 Totals To Date:

  • Avalon: 383 words
  • Blogging: 3,951 words
