Yesterday, I did 1,695 words.

Just about scraped 1,300 yesterday, so averaging 1,000 a day so far! I'm back in the office today, and this is where it becomes a real challenge, I suppose. Writing 1,000 words every day before/after/during eight hours in the office.

1850 words for Jan 3rd.  I wasn't expecting so much given I was on the road driving for a bit over 6 hours, and throw in a couple more for loading and unloading the car.  Managed to bash them out in a hurry early in the morning before all that happened.
