I did an initial interview with a firm Thursday morning. They asked for references and I provided them the following day along with my thank you note. In past experiences, I would have heard something by now unless they were not interested at all. Am I wrong to just write this one off?

It’s only Monday so I wouldn’t count it out just yet. In my last interview process it took about 3-5 days for them to get through the reference & background checks.

Your references are likely very busy people so it can take a few days to get on their calendars

It’s been a crazy week. Give them a little time. If you don’t hear back by Friday, shoot them a quick message in the afternoon wishing them a nice weekend and to let you know if they have any issue getting in touch with your references. Good luck!
