Well here we are, still writing and getting the words together in a credible order so that I’ll have something to work with when this marathon is over. The lap top isn’t helping as the letter v has decided that it’s going to be awkward and I now have to hit the key very hard like depressing a manual typewriter key. I’m now past 22,000 words and I believe it’s getting easier. My writing buddy is maintaining a similar pace which makes it easier as I don’t want to let her down as we both failed last year. We are both determined to finish and win this year.
