Timing is everything. Urgent non-writing commitments refuse to go away, and are in fact reaching their most critical time this week.
So in the second half of week five I wrote another 1800 words, for a weekly total of 3800. It's the lowest one so far, but it has yet to be outdone by week six, which so far totals zero words. In my semi-defense, though, this year's week five would still rank as last year's second-highest week. Take that, last year's me!
I did also reach two pretty cool milestones--at the same time!
It's official: by anyone's count it's long enough to be a novel. Is it good enough? Not yet. But that's a problem for Future Emily.
