Summary of today's work:
First full day on the ranch. Already, half of the girls missed breakfast because they were fussing with their hair and make up or were sleeping until the last second. Their choice, but I can tell you, they are going to be starving come lunch time. The first load of hay was delivered and the crew is learning how to stack it in the hay barn.Yup, that's pretty much what happened in 3,300 or so words today. Pretty sad that I can boil down that many words into a four sentence summary, ay? Let's just say that conversations are the best way I've found to pad my word count. Heck, we haven't even laid in a hundred bales. I've still got all of the horses to introduce; that should be good for another 3-4k right there. A couple of lines of description on twenty two horses will add up.
One of the girls in our region has already cranked out more than 20,000 words, which makes me feel like a big ole slacker. Jay's closing in on 6,000 as I type this and Jordan's last update was about 5,700, so we're all just tooling along. The trick, they say, is to maintain the enthusiasm for the entire month, not just the first week. We'll see how it goes.
