I Really Can't Think of a Clever Title for This Post

There is so little news, it's almost depressing.

My long time streak of being able to write 3 000 words in a day was broken last week when, some days, I barely even made 1 000. It has picked up over the last two days, but it has taken all day when it used to only take a few hours.

I shouldn't grumble too much, I suppose. At least I'm writing, right?

In any case, Hunter is going along alright. I'm almost finished. Only about 30 000 words left to write. That's actually not as much as it might seem.

I'm not sure that I'll do any writing today, though. I'm thinking I might give myself the day off and daydream instead.

We'll see.

Right, onto today's Forgotten English entry.

Beats the Dutch:
Something extraordinary. "That beats the Dutch and the Dutch beats the Devil" is the superlative.
- James Maitland's American Slang Dictionary, 1891

Cool phrase, "beats the dutch."

And indeed, I often dislike setting goals for my writing...often feels forced for's good to daydream. :) Good luck!

I generally work well with goals, but today was just a mess!
