Getting off to a slow start

My self-imposed deadline to start work on my new book was Tuesday, December 2nd. I should be wrapping up my first week of work right about now . . . emphasis on should. I haven't done a thing. I've been busy (hey, Christmas is coming).

I did allow for extra time for distractions and other projects (it's the latter that is the culprit in this particular case), so I'm not worried, but I'm knuckling down starting today. It helps that I've already written 90 pages during a very long downtime of about 6 months last year (this year I had more like 6 weeks).

So, here's a Writertopia measurement of where I sit:

Twenty-eight percent complete? I'll take it!
