not 1'000 words including spaces, but characters. CHARACTERS. at this very moment, i have written a total of 1121 words or 6'910 characters including spaces. just a few moments ago it dawned on me that today is the 25th of march already. this means i should have a complete first draft by the day after tomorrow. that'd give me one and a half days to revise, which isn't exactly much time. i know i don't have to come up with 23'000 more characters/ spaces, but i think i should try for 13'000 more. i'll see what i can do... and will let you know.
