Lunchtime writing

Productive, but tedious morning at work. I spent more than three hours doing some data conversion that was very time consuming, yet at the same time, made the morning just fly by.

I didn’t take my lunch until 12:30 and I spent the entire hour working on Graveyard Shift. I did another 1,480 words this afternoon, bringing the total for the day to about 2,500 words, or half of what I need to get back on pace.

Good stopping point now, so I’m going to grab some food and then get back to work.
