Fallen Rewrite - Week 5

Only 9 pages this week. Being on for work just took its toll. I needed the entire weekend to recuperate. Hopefully I'll get back to at least 1,000-word days now that I'm back home. Though we do have a new phone system going into work. Pluse, I expect a few people to call off sick Monday (and maybe Tuesday) because I was on site and couldn't take support calls.

It's typical for some people here to feel put upon and take a "sick day" out of spite: "See how you like that, Steve. We had to work while you were having fun on site."

That's not the attitude held by the majority of my colleagues. Just a few bad apples.

Sigh ... just short of one quarter on the projected goal.

Even though this week found me 12 pages short of a regular NIN total, I'm still ahead of the Week 5 mark of 26,250 words. There's still lots of hard work ahead, though, if I want to keep myself out in front. I'll consider myself lucky to record 7,000 words by next Sunday.

Edited at 8:53 a.m. Monday, 2/12:

I stand corrected on my initial estimate that people would call off sick. They showed.*
