I was supposed to spend another 24 hours in my hotel room, but I just couldn’t do it. So this morning I checked out a day early and drove home.
I wrote 20,000 words in about three and a half days. Sophistication is now 95,000 words and the story is really, truly nearing the conclusion.
But I needed a break. Yesterday was particularly grueling, I think because for some reason I didn’t sleep well the night prior. And when I woke up this morning, I just knew that I needed some downtime.
So back to a thousand words a night.
