Ginger ale and progress

We opened the Alton Brown ginger ale at dinner tonight, and… yeah. There was no fizz, and I know it’s not because the recipe was flawed. It was because we don’t turn on the heat in our apartment. It’s always in the mid-50’s around here, and yeast really wants higher temps than that.

Still, as flat soda, it was pretty amazing–not very sweet, but the ginger flavor was fresh and sharp. I’ll try it again in the spring when things are warmer around here.

And I managed 1,800 words today, which is a hugely productive day for me. I’d love to be able to write 9K in four hours, the way some writers do, but no. I finished my 1.8K in four hours (and they were difficult words, too), and I’m glad. More tomorrow.
