My word count today is 7,992. (only 42,034 to go, I can't seem to break that first 10,000 word mark) I currently sit 3 days ahead of schedule. That's good, because you never know what might happen. Take today, for instance.
I have to take my son, James, to an appointment in another town. I know I want to keep writing. I need to stay on track. So do I take my laptop with me, go to the cafe across the street from where his appointment is and type for an hour or do I take a notepad and write in longhand while I sit in the truck and wait for him?
It will be chilly and not very comfortable in the truck. A cold front came through during the night and today's high isn't going to go much past 60 degrees. I probably won't get a very good word count and I'll have to transcribe it later.
Writing at the cafe seems like the smart choice. It will be light, bright, and comfortable. I'll get a good word count and I'll have everything all typed up, as usual. If the appointment runs a little bit long, I can keep typing and adding to that word count. But I also have to leave my truck parked on the street in an inhospitable town.
Will I overcome my fear of "parking"? Tune in tomorrow to see what happens.
Today begins Day #4 . . .
