Today was an extremely busy day both at home (kids woke up at 6:30!) and work (back-to-back meetings all day), so I didn’t get to writing until after 11pm. Still, I managed to get my writing done before midnight, I got 1,017 words written, for a grand total of 10,247. Here are my stats for today: http://750words.com/entries/share/366040 . markdown2pdf gives me a 30-page PDF file, so about 3.3 pages per day so far. Not bad!
Curious that 750words says I’m feeling sad and thinking mostly about death. It’s a chapter about testing. I figure “testing” is being interpreted with its meaning of “ardous” or “challenging”, hence this interpretation: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/testing
Today I had to resist the tempation of converting everything from Markdown to ReST, just because Sphynx and ReST look very cool (thanks Travis for the pointer). Had to convince myself that this is about WRITING, and using ReST would mean learning ReST, when I already know Markdown. Reduce friction, keep writing.
