Word count for mini_nanowrimo day 15: 1000 words of McShep wax play, and 200 words of sleep Supernatural not-quite-porn.
mini_nanowrimo running total: 6440 words, in 15 days
Today I typed up just over half of the McShep piece, but, as is usual with my handwritten work, it somehow doubled in size to 921 words, so I'm claiming the 421 over and above the 'half of 1000' as today's contribution.
