Words: 1187. Not fantastic, but it is writing.

Total Words So Far: around 15000 but some of those are notes to myself

I am glad for Google, which has told me that Jazzercise would have existed in Chicago in 1978, even if it would not show me pictures of purses specifically from 1986. But I am not sure either of these things really matters, it may be elaborate cat vacuuming, and I am a little inclined to think that this entire section is boring, all summary and no motion, so it will need to be rewritten or perhaps entirely removed. Still, I must get from Point A to Point B somehow -- or perhaps I do not, perhaps I may just say, here were are at Point B. I don't have the shape of it yet, but I will get there. This is the part of writing which used to drive me to despair, but I am pleased to report that while I feel a little irritable, it no longer seems an insurmountable problem indicating that writing is a useless endeavour.

I wonder if this will be a novel or a novella? If I finish it, it will be the first long thing I have ever finished, so really, that is enough of a goal. Keep writing. Finish it. Then find readers so I can figure out how to make it better.

I have no idea how many words I actually wrote, as these files are a mess and I wrote some things four or five times and haven't deleted all of the excess yet, but I think it was about 2500 words. Not much for the entire day, but having not touched the project in three months it took me some time to pick up the threads again, and then I had to rename a character, which led to finally solidifying necessary details as to other names, dates, and other useful underpinnings. I also ate two meals and helped my partner find various objects he needed for child-care purposes and so forth, so I am quite, quite satisfied.

Imagine if I did this every day. Why don't I? Oh, yes, two children, housework, errands, therapy, sleep, all of that. But really, I ought to be able to do this more days than I do, there are three days when both children are in school, and therapy isn't until 1, I could write from 9.30-12.30 3 days a week and that would be marvelous. I might even finish something then, and have to figure out what to do with it, a terrifying thought. Well, the next possible writing day is Monday, we will see if I may manage it.
