While some folks ventured out today and fought the crowds at Black Friday sales about the country, I stayed home today, thus avoiding shootings, pepper spray, and smelly crowds. Not necessarily in that order. Oh, I ventured out of the house. Took a good walk around the block to get in my exercise for the day. Also to help get the old creative juices flowing. A good, brisk walk, a shower, and a healthy lunch, and I was all ready to begin writing. I managed to crank out 3,419 words before taking a break for dinner. It might have been the boost to the creative side from the exercise, or the fact that I was writing action scenes, but the words seemed to pour out of me this afternoon. I went from being behind in my word count to being slightly ahead. After dinner I decided to resume writing for a bit more and managed to produce another 1000 words, ending the day with 4,440 words written, bringing my total word count for my novel up to 43,080!

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday. And those of you who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you’ve at least had something that made you feel grateful for the day. We got together with a bunch of friends for a pot luck dinner and game night. We had a real good time, and that is part of the reason that this is being posted so late. I was busy for most of the day, but I did manage to squeeze in a little writing, adding 622 words to bring the total up to 38,640 words. The rest of this weekend will be dedicated to the push to reach that 50,000 word finish line!
