Lifting the Fog to See the Clear Horizon

I'm posting my progress from last night (I was WAY too exhausted to do a post when I finished) so I'm doing it now! Here's my progress on my steampunk post-apocalyptic novel about a scavenger who is forced to join a secret organization and carry out their nafarious ( ? ) deeds!

Project: The Scavenger

Words Written Today: 3176 (wow! )

Total Words: 6053


Story Achievements: A confidant was told about how the heroine joined the secret organization and a brief fight insues before comfort is given.

Real-Life Achievements: I've been sick for the last week with an awful cough and it's been keeping me from sleeping. On Wednesday I got some medicine from my doctor and I've been taking it as often as it'll let me (I have to wait six hours between each dose) and it's really been helping. Most of the symptoms are still there, but I can feel them lessening. I guess it takes more than three or four doses of medicine for it to work. Also! I played with my steampunk tarot card deck and got the best possible reading I could've asked for! Now normally I just treat this as a game and don't put that much stock in it, but this time the cards told me that as long as I keep my eye on the prize, work hard, and don't sych myself out I'm destined to use "The Scavenger" to get an agent this year! Again, I know not to put my whole heart in a tarot card reading but I figure if it gives me confidence to do what I need to do, why not believe it?
