    I've completed some years, haven't others.  But I found that the concept of 1667 words/day' became a problem for me.  So I re-thought it and came up with this --

    50K words over 4 weeks = 12,500 words/week
    Once I've gotten my typing speed back up, I can pretty easily write - 2000 - 2500 words in 1.5 - 2 hours.

    At 2000 words/day, 12,500 words take 6.25 days.
    At 2500 words/day, 12,500 words take 5 days.

    So, if I can 'front-load' a week with 2-3 days at 2000 - 2500 words/day, I can ease up or take a day off if needed.

    Actually, Mitt, I AM entitled to food.
