Daily Count Challenge to . . . CanDream!

Between our water cutting out early Monday morning and doctor appointments, my weekend (Tuesday and Wednesday) has been completely buggered. It looks like the best I'm going to be able to get out is 1500, which I did get yesterday but had delayed in posting because I'd hoped to be able to get some more words in early this morning -- and it's just not happening. :( Better luck today, candream!

And on another note, how do you guys feel about dropping out of challenges? I've got a challenge that's buggering me. The fic is pretty much written, but I feel like it needs a little doctoring and it has to be betaed, or at least self-betaed, before posting. I really think the idea of having to look at that process again is part of what's hindering my inspiration, and it also doesn't help that the main character has something wrong with her with which I just had a brush myself and I don't really want to think about that sort of thing right now. I feel like I'd be able to better write if I didn't have that hung around my neck, but I also feel guilty when I think about giving in and dropping out of the challenge.
