Abandoned my writing buddy when my eyeballs threatened to fall out of my head and roll across the floor and, more importantly, the superstrength ibuprofen wore off and my hands started to ache like they’d been hit with a hammer. Starting wordccount 13k. Final wordcount at the end of the day: 17,436

  1. I gave up writing and dedicated my life to photographing roller derby for a while. Does that count? And I like the killing off in your excerpt ;)

    I’ve discovered that a funeral is worth about 4,000 words. A wedding only about 2500. On the other hand that wedding was interupted by zombies, so that might have been part of the problem.
