It's just simple adding and taking away that I want to be sure of:
There are 30 days in September.
I'm aiming for 60,000 words by the end of the month.
I want to see a friend at least once before the end of the month.
I'm planning to write 2,000 words a day.
So, here's the maths:
Up until this time yesterday (10th for easy maths) I'd written 22,000 words.
In 10 days I'll have written another 22,000 words
Then add another 10 days and another 22,000 words
That's 66,000 words, right so far?
Now take off 6,000 for the 3 weeks I meet up with the friend.
That's 60,000 words by the end of September and I've seen my friend 3 times, right?
I hope so! lol
