I'm still in the mid-book slog, where getting 300 to 500 words a day is good for me, even though it's much less than my usual amount. I've never done Wrinanomomo, because it just doesn't work that way for me, though I know it's great for a lot of people.
I also don't read writing advice books, though I know a lot of people find those incredibly helpful. One thing I think people should realize early on is that everyone's process for writing is different, and if your process enables you to finish a story or book, then it's a successful process, and it doesn't matter if it doesn't conform to anyone else's experience.
I'm not a big fan of conformity in general, and as I get older, I like it less and less.
Food, food, food:
I made beef stew last night, in honor of our slightly lower tempertures, and it was very successful. I got the meat on Saturday from the ranch that comes to the local Farmer's Market, and used this recipe. Though if we have red wine available I like to add that, too.
A new thing I tried recently was chicken with Thai green curry. The second try, with coconut milk, worked out much better and was yummy.
