Status Update on the Work in Progress- Countdown: Day 11

Current Project: A short story for an anthology set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage world.
Title: Sisters…It’s a working title, subject to change
Due Date: April 1st (seriously)
Upper Word Count limit: 8000 Words

Word count to date: 12,386 Words (seriously)
Days remaining: 11 days

Another (roughly) 7000 words gone.  I was ruthless today, but there’s more that needs to be done. Tomorrow starts the 10 day countdown and I’m really going to have to dig to find those last 4000 (roughly) words.

I want to get it done by Friday so that I can get it to Betas over the weekend, giving me 4 final days of polishing before turning it in to the editors.

That’s about a thousand words a day.  I can do that…right?
