After 5 hours on planes and as much time at airports, including getting home at some ridiculous hour and another 9 hours on planes and a funeral coming up in the next four hours I'm going to be wrecked and not sure how much writing will get done.  If I'm lucky (and it isn't too bumpy) I may be able to use the flying time.

It was a real struggle getting them out today.  Didn't help that the computer ate the first 250 words.  The words weren't flowing and so I had to grind them out.

Taking a few days to get healthy. Dealing with a cold and a heavy cough. Feels like I've been run over by a runaway truck.

Hit the 1K mark but first day of they year I failed to reach my daily goal.  Being on a plane of half the day sort of does that.
