Three days into my 500-words-per-day goal, and I've missed the goal for the last two days. (not to be confused with missing the gaol, which is what I typed first, and seems to be rather a good thing).
I would actually have to write 900 words tomorrow to make up for the 400 words I've been short these last two days. In my defense, I've taken on new duties at the Real Job(tm) and it's something that actually requires some thought and concentration. (oddly enough, I'm enjoying it, save for the lack of free writing time)
Still no responses to the three queries outstanding, but I was figuring a two-week wait, so I'm not worrying about it yet.
