Public Accountability: The Novel Enduro Begins

Today begins a two-week writing marathon.  My (rather ambitious) goal is to finish my novel-in-progress.  Here's a screen shot of my current stats (from Scrivener):
30,000 words to go; 10 business days to do it in.  That means 3000 words a day.  Folks, I've never written that much, that fast.  But I have another novel lined up behind this one, which I really want to get started on; I'm thirty-seven and not famous yet; I've carved out this space from a demanding day job; and the only way out is through.

Materials: Scrivener; my trusty Lenovo which I got at the end of last year's novel enduro; a new pair of yoga pants; typing fingers; playlists.  Plus a new cat tree, meant to keep the cats off my desk (wish me luck).

Cuing up my playlists... pouring the coffee... wrapping a scarf around my neck... and GO.
