Fellow writers, of fiction and nonfiction, my brothers and sisters. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of writers fail, when we forsake our characters and burn our manuscripts. But it is not this day.
An hour of distractions and shattered pencils, when the age of authors comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we write! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you prevail, Warriors of the Words!
(Yes, I am a card carrying geek.)
So I came way too darn close to a zero word day. I had to scramble for my 52 on Thursday, but there were words!
Running total: 141,535. Running average: 1,705. Highest word count day: 1,828 (Sunday).
