Sitting at the laptop by 7 AM with a cup of tea.
8 AM broke for breakfast with a wordcount of 1002.
1:20 PM stopped for lunch, wordcount 3045
6:30 PM stopped for dinner, needing food, although my wordcount was only 4682, not the 5k I'd aimed for.
Closed at 11 PM with a wordcount of 6763, shy of the 7-8k I'd wanted, but still my highest Day 1 count ever. Previous highest was 6555 in 2009.
Title is Vessels.
First line: The day began with portents. That's never a good sign.
Last bit written last night:
Virgie thought it over, tearing her muffin into blue-stained crumbs. "There are only two groups? Not more?"
"Lots more," I said, taking my turn at the cookpot. "But only two that want a public fight for dominance."
