I'm inching towards 17k words.
I estimate that I've completed 30 words a day since January. That's miniscule.
After this, I think I'll take my time and crank out a few article for Dragon. Maybe I can get WotC to buy a few. I can then both write AND say that it's a side job.
This weekend: Going away party for my cousing, who's off to Africa to teach English. Also, June birthday parties and Father's Day.
