So, I slacked off a little bit on Friday and Saturday night. Friday night I didn’t feel well and went to bed early. I think I was just over tired. Saturday I was lured out with the promise of free dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and a trip to the closing sales at Borders. I knew I’d written a lot last week, so I was hoping I was still on track to make my end goal even after missing two days.

Tonight before I started writing I checked my goals to see how much my slacking off for two days hurt, and I was still way ahead. That made me feel slightly less guilty about ditching my characters for two days. Then I more than doubled my daily word goal for today.  Right now I’m way ahead so I’m thinking it might be time to increase the daily word count again.
