I dragged a 6 x 9 steno pad with me yesterday and wrote on that. I just compose faster when I write by hand then when I type, although I can type what I have written as fast as I can read it. On one sheet of this pad I can fit about 300 words, which means that 11 pages is about two days worth of writing. If I can keep up this pace, I will be caught up in a week.
Yesterday's efforts brought my word count up to 9,559.
I just might win.
