World's Strongest Writer Marathon Update

                I am up to 14,388 words now. With luck I will catch up to the 15k where I am supposed to be now. That is at a figure of 2500 words per day, five days a week, from Monday to Friday, with Saturday and Sunday off for good behavior. I started on a Friday, which is why I counted in a sixth day at 2500 words to the total.
                Taking two days off gave me time to pick up my stride so that I could catch up if for any reason I lagged behind in output. ;-)
                I also finished reading Green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson, and have just started on Red Mars. I do not know if I will finish it by Saturday, but I can give it my best shot. I also have the rest of Linda Nagata's Vast to read through.I began reading the book a couple of years ago but kept getting lost in the prose. Of course, there were several hundred different things happening in my life at the time as well (read "complete and total anarchy and chaos," folks). She was an instructor at Writers Digest school for a time, I ended up changing instructors mid-stream. I do not know if she is still affiliated with them (Linda, if you read this, hello! I think I have finally figured out how to work a blog!).
