Daily Count Challenge

So I've been fighting getting sick and had a hard time getting going yesterday morning. I managed 816 words, which was about 716 words more than I thought I was going to get. It was only about my bedtime when I saw the post from our wonderful kaige68 calling on me for yesterday. That was my little count for yesterday, but today I knew I had to get off my butt and get A LOT done with the end of the month so swiftly closing in on us. Not only did I manage to get almost all my challenges that were left for August finished, but I do believe my count for today beats any count I've ever had before for one day . . . 12,971!!!

Now if I can only get my brain clear enough that I can get it all posted and counted, and that one remaining challenge answered, before month's end.
