So in years past we have done this little table thingy to track where everyone is. I feel like I'm explaining it wrong.

Anyways, it looks like this:

Book Title:
Word Count:
Characters Killed:
Cups of Coffee Drunk:
Hours Spent Procrastinating:
Word Goal for Today:
Words Actually Written today:

That should be good, right? All I honestly care about is the word count anyways.

Book Title: Sweet Sorrow
Word Count: 20,110 (WHAT? I'M AHEAD OF KRISS? THIS ISN'T POSSIBLE!)

Cups of Coffee Drunk: Um, none because I just woke up. But I'll probably drink lots of coffee later.
Hours Spent Procrastinating: Hmm, well it's 6:38 now and I woke up at exactly 6 so ... 38 minutes.
Word Goal for Today: If I got to 30k today, that would be fantastic. But I think I'll be pretty busy today.
Words Actually Written today: Uhhhhh none! But I just woke up. And I plan on squeezing some words in before breakfast, which is at about 8:30. So.
