And on the first day...

...of the writing marathon, I managed decently. About 1000 new words. DH beat me - he got over 1500 - but he was already 500 into his scene when I finally started writing. I got a late start because it took an hour and a half of sitting at my computer after the baby went to bed for the Diet Sunkist to kick in and my exhaustion-induced mental block to lift. I added a decent chunk to an exsisting scene stub, and started a new one that came to me. I'd like to get 4-5K by the end of the marathon, I think. If I'm gonna break 50K by New Year's, I need to be cracking.

And now, since my day job requires me to be able to focus on lots and lots of numbers to ensure patients get the right amount of radiation, I'm going to bed.
