A numbers game

Instead of trying to squork the deadline by writing the bare minimum of words a day, I'm going to schedule myself a nice five-day work week, writing-wise. That way, I'll be aiming for 5,000 words a day (if I sit down and do it, I can, seriously) and if I get behind, I still have two extra days in the week that haven't been figured in to play catchup.

I'm figuring Tuesday will have plenty of drawing-board activity, but not much actual novel. That's OK. When I have a good outline, I can really clip along, and I really like doing outline when I'm bored.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
