Day 91. 57 pages, 24,081 words.
A day of relaxation (he pre-writes with breathtaking optimism), before work resumes and the after-work activities with my folks kick into their second week.
I think sometime this weekend there was meant to be a Juhannus bonfire and assorted things going on around the village, so we can go and cook some sausages and stuff.
With any luck, tomorrow I will be able to report a solid jump in my word-count … but I’m going to be busy at work, and I’m not sure how much time I will have had to write over the four-day weekend. I’ve severely de-prioritised it in the presence of a summer weekend with my girls – and my visiting parents. And even though I’m pre-writing this on Wednesday and predict that by Sunday I will be feeling pretty crabby about my writing needs, I don’t regret the decision and hope I won’t regret it much by Sunday, either.
Going into the long weekend with a positive attitude planned. I think it’s the only way through the end of June.
