  • Written: 23 sentences for Day 97 (Apr 7), 39 sentences for Day 98 (Apr 6), 32 sentences for Day 99 (Apr 9)
  • Notes: I got a lot written despite the holiday (not that we do much besides a bigger dinner than usual for Easter, but that still takes up a lot of my time) mostly because I continued writing past midnight while I had the momentum from the night before and then wrote some more before I went to bed.
