Holiday Writing Challenge - Day 4 Word Count
I know, I know: No dday 3...
As it turns out, keeping track of my word count in the public domain didn’t make me as accountable as I thought it would. ;) Yesterday’s lapse in recording was a result of my complete and utter failure to write a single word, which was, in turn, a result of my spending the afternoon and evening with a friend home from studying in the Caribbean. After five hours of Dr. Who, supper, and a good deal of talking, I came home and dropped straight off to sleep.
I made up for that today, though, as I have a word count of 2064. Half of those words were notes taken in interview with Grandma in preparation for writing a paper on family history for the Ontario Genealogical Society’s essay competition. I’ve got a good platform, and some interesting ideas, but there’s a lot more research to do. Thanks to Grandma, I’ve got many more strings to pull!
