Word count now caught up to the daily average plus a few words. I just reached 8532!
Yesterday my attempt to trade an hour of sleep for an hour of writing at midnight failed. Overall, that was probably a positive occurrence. I'm sure I feel better today for having gotten the sleep. I sat at the keyboard and started typing last night, then -- ooops -- I nodded off. Not comfortable, so I woke after a few seconds; did this three times; gave up and dragged myself to bed with only an additional 110 words, not my most productive day.
But, thank you to a job cancelation today, I had about two additional hours to write and am now back on track with the daily average.
