Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

I took yesterday off from the blog, and writing. I wish I'd taken the day off from yardwork, too, but the lawn needed mowing. First mow of the year, and tonight they're predicting frost. Stupid weather. Gah.

Anyhoo, enough about that.

Tonight, I hit the halfway mark! I'm projecting a final product of around 80K, and I rolled over 40K just now. Yay me! I think the first draft is going to end up short of the 80K, but that's par for the course. Since Spectacle, my first drafts always run short. I stopped laboring over every word, you see, so now I just forge ahead, and fix it in the edits. Very liberating, let me tell ya.

So now that's done, I'm going to try and catch up on some of the sleep I missed this past week. (And rest my aching lawn-mowing legs.)

Hope all y'all are reaching your goals, or if not, at least trying to reach them. If you never try, you'll never succeed.

And with that ponderance, I'll bid you goodnight.

Yay! Great progress! At this rate, you'll be done in no time!
