I had some grand plans about banging out 4000 words a day until I finish my NaNo Novel but decided I'd settle for a modest 2500 a day and finish when I finish.
Accordingly, I'm at roughly 52,500 after spending a few hours at the World Bird Sanctuary earlier today. Birds of prey are intimidating when they're lashed to a perch mere feet from your face. I kept thinking of the part in The Gunslinger when David the Hawk mauled Court. I think people forget that birds are pretty much miniature dinosaurs wrapped in feathers.
