Four Days

I got four days left to make a big push with the Las Vegas book. I haven't even written the two biggest chapters yet. I was worried that I wasn't going to have enough material for this project. Now, I'm worried that I didn't give myself enough time to finish writing this. 15 days? I needed a month, but only had 15. Fuck, fuck, fuck. I have a week in early February, which I think I'll devote to the rewrite, but after that I'd have to wait until March for the next window.
Current word count: 86K
Thursday's binge: 11.7K
I broke a promise for myself and wrote one freelance article the other night. 1,400 words seemed effortless compared to the 8K to 9K I had been cranking out every day.

The Knicks play tonight after winning 5 straight. Unreal. They will try to make it 6 tonight and I'll take a break to watch.

One week from today I start a freelance assignment in Atlantic City. Yes, a casino hired me to write for them for almost two weeks. Details to follow.

The Tao shall be on hiatus until I'm done writing the book.
