The Challenge

I posted a challenge over on the Kick A Goalers blog to kick start my weekend. I want to finish 10,000 words total this weekend - either new or edited - starting today. I had a hard time dragging my butt out of bed this morning because I was all warm and cozy, snuggled under the covers and since I have yet to breakdown and turn on the heat, it was damn chilly in my room. But I managed to do it and I'm glad I did. I got through 2,022 words this morning, which just exceeded my goal of 2,000 words. Whew, things are back on track. Yay! Rejoice! Embarrass myself with a happy dance!

I think this weekend's goal of 4,000 words each day should be doable. The upcoming scene changes very little and it's a major scene in the book, so I hope I can breeze through it easily enough without too much trouble and maybe just a little trimming and editing. I'm going to get my errands done tonight, so with the exception of the chimney guy supposedly showing up on Sunday, I should be able to work uninterrupted.
