April 2017 is almost over, and tonight I crossed the 50,000 word mark. I won’t deny that this month has been a struggle at times. Tammy has not been writing, so that’s the first time I’ve ever tried to make 50k without her writing in the evenings as well. It makes a big difference when only one person is writing. I managed to write three of the four days on my trip to Sarnia, and made my word count target on two of them. Tonight I was back to my typewriter, and it seemed a lot less of a chore. Sometimes I wonder if the extra effort and noise are worth it, but trips like this remind me that it is.
I suppose I should thank the weather, which has been horrible. There haven’t really been many temptations to go out and work in the yard or start re-staining the deck railings because it’s snowed pretty much every week, including this morning.
I haven’t typed “The End” yet. There are still a couple of days left in April and the weather still isn’t perking up. A Bow Cyclist ride is scheduled for Sunday, but I have my doubts that it will happen.
