I’ve had enough days where the words trickle out sideways to appreciate what has been happening lately.

Thursday morning, I knocked out more than 1,000 words on my new novel project — then was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked most of them today when I took another look.

After that warm-up editing session, I put down another 1,000-plus. I’ll let those steep overnight.

Total word count thus far: 25,852 in nearly eight chapters.

My wife is heading out of town for a visit with her best friend, so I figure to make even more tracks this weekend in my solitude. I’m also overdue for a polishing on the entirety of the manuscript, so I’ll probably fit that in, as well.

Gotta ride the hot streak as far as it will go.
