WIP Challenge Check-in, Day 13 -- Friday

Since it's Friday, I thought I'd check in and see how everyone is doing.  Hope y'all are having a better writing week than I am!  Even though it's Friday the 13th, I'm hoping for some good luck today instead of bad, so I can spend some significant time writing!

Looking back at the week, how did it go?
  •     I thought about my fic once or twice
  •     I wrote
  •     I did some planning and/or research
  •     I edited
  •     I've sent my fic off to my beta
  •     I posted today!
  •     I'm taking a break
  •     I did something else that I'll talk about in a comment
Looking forward, how are you planning to spend your weekend?
  •     I'm going to make up for not writing all week by having a writing marathon
  •     I'm going to keep writing at my current rate and see how it goes
  •     I have other plans, but I might have time to get some writing in
  •     I'm going to take a break from writing

WIP Challenge Check-in, Day 23 -- Wednesday

Sorry about forgetting to post a check in yesterday.  Tuesdays are like that sometimes!  So, what kind of a writing day has it been today -- or the last two days, if today hasn't gotten going yet?
  •     I thought about my fic once or twice
  •     I wrote
  •     I did some planning and/or research
  •     I edited
  •     I've sent my fic off to my beta
  •     I posted today!
  •     I'm taking a break
  •     I did something else that I'll talk about in a comment
Wednesday Discussion:  Tuesdays are often difficult for me to get any writing done, probably due to the fact that my schedule is different and it's more prone to interruptions.  Is there a day of the week that is regularly difficult for you as far as writing goes?
