7/15: 160 words. The third consecutive day with a low word count, but still it was still forward progress. I skipped a chapter, because I couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted to do with it, so I’m continuing the trend of writing this novel out of order.

7/16: 526 words. Not as much writing as I’d hoped for, but it was still more than the previous three days combined. It’s also noteworthy that I crossed 95,000 words for the year.

7/17: 767 words. A solid writing session this morning. I should finish the current chapter either later today or tomorrow. I’ve been writing Casual Business with Fairies for a month now, and it’s already at 14,000 words. At this pace, I’ll be done in another four months, which seems simultaneously like it will take forever and not be all that long. If I can finish it before Thanksgiving, I’ll feel pretty good about that, especially with how busy August and September are lining up for work.
