So the latest stats for the thing I've been working on, in case there are any good sabremetricians taking a crack at ranking writers according to strict statistical analysis and eschewing wishy washy subjective criteria as to whether or not you "like their style or stories."
Pens: 1, Me: 2 (stats based on pens emptied and injuries incurred by me from aforementioned pens: don't worry, I'm okay, and will be out of the hospital any day now)
Bad cups of home-brewed Dunkin Donuts coffee because I live in this place called the Wild West now, so called because of the distinct lack of Dunkin Donuts shops: 8? 9? Not all in one morning, mind you.
With this novel, celebrating the fact that my kids are at that age where they let their parent sleep mostly through the night, I'm tending to work from 5am to 7am, clocking around 800 to 1,200 words a day (rough guess, since I'm writing this all in notebooks, which don't have a word count function).
This is what I do with my time, when I don't have to shovel snow in the early mornings, it seems.
