Writing Challenge: Day 16

I wrote 2817 words today, meeting my daily goal and more than maintaining my total goal. I’m at 43,949 words, which is 77 words over. I could have written for another half and hour today, or I could be writing right now after the kids go to bed, but two things stopped me: 417 more words
