I really didn't think I'd hit the 60,000 word mark today (there just didn't seem to be enough hours in the day) but I thought I'd try and bash out a few words anyway. I only had an hour and, after 800 or so words, reached a bit of a sticking point (and thought "I'll just put this bit off until tomorrow") but I really wanted to hit 60,000 words today so I ploughed on and then, just as my hour was up - 1,946 words had been written and I'd hit my target! Two thirds of the novel written.
Last night I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean (3). It was....long. In fact there was an intermission (though no one sold ice cream). I hadn't experienced an intermission in a film since I was a child so it was a little unexpected (I thought the film had broken). So - how was the film? Slow (obviously) and it could have done with a real trim but it was still enjoyable (though not as enjoyable as the first two). I fidgeted quite a lot so I'd be very surprised if 12-years-olds didn't get the tiniest bit bored. I'd give it 6/10. Worth seeing at the cinema for the special effects but not worth buying on DVD to re-watch.
