Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.

Happy Guy Fawkes’ Night! Nothing is happening here but I always remember bonfire night even when I’m not in the UK.

Today is double up day. Things we can do include doubling our donation and getting, for instance, $50 gifts for $25. We can also aim at doubling our current wordcount or doubling our daily wordcount target.

I always try to get 5000 words a day at the weekends. Today I had no plans to go out but plans to make chicken curry for dinner so I split the writing into chunks. I wanted to get to 12k by the time I started prepping the chicken, which I did. I chopped up 4 chicken legs, on the bone. Mirepoix, garlic, ginger, potato, carrots, curry paste and coconut milk. While the chicken was cooking, I aimed at getting to 13k by dinner. Another 2000 words between 8.30pm and 10pm and I’m at 15k. Yay.

Chapter 4 is done, the MCs went to dinner and took a late night stroll along the seafront park. The beginning of chapter 5 is the next morning. I’m going through the days slowly. They are going about their day separately today but they made a date to have phone lunch together. Hahaha.
