Well, yesterday was a bust in more ways than one.
I did get about 800 words down, sitting in midstream and at the top of a slide (not *intended* metaphorically, although . . .) during my peregrinations today. However, the only writing implement I had along was my new calligraphic fountain pen, and about fifty words in the nib decided to stop working properly, so only about one stroke in three got through to the page. Example:
A very *effective* way to prevent myself from going back and fixing things, to say the least. However, it is novel and I did write it this month, even if it is unreadable in more ways than the usual, so it goes in the word count, at my standard 200 wpp.
I'm hoping to get about a thousand more in the next few hours, which will at least keep me from falling even farther behind. I'd like to get to another one of my main characters introduced, at least!
