I’m a little behind schedule as I go into week 3. Was 4 pages short on Sunday, and stopped to have FUN. Fun being vital to life, as you know. =) Then Monday, I planned to write while my daughter was having some minor medical procedures done to diagnose an ongoing stomach issue. Naturally I was there with her for that, but I brought the laptop. But then, I had a novella, just edited, to go over. Meaning, I had to read it, address any notes from the editor, and make any changes I felt needed to be made. So I thought, okay, I’ll read the novella in the waiting room, and write tonight, while my kiddo sleeps off the anesthesia. Alas, the novella work took longer than I expected. It’s a good story, and I couldn’t help really spending the time needed to make it even better. So I worked on that until about 9:30, when my girl woke up. And then I curled up in bed with her and we talked and laughed until we both fell asleep. It was a good day. And the tests didn’t show anything scary, and in fact, ruled out some things, so that went well too.
So now I’m 14 pages behind schedule. I don’t think it’s going to be too hard to catch up, though. A few extra pages each day and I’ll be right back on top. And it’s only a day and a half behind anyway, so no big deal. I just can’t get too much further behind than that. And Thursday is the state fair with my granddaughter, so I need to buckle down.
That’s the update for now. Couldn’t make it all small enough for ping, but I’ll ping the link to here, and then I’m diving in.
It’s still fun. That’s the main thing, right there. As long as this is still fun, I’ll do fine. 26 days to go. Surely, it can stay fun that long!
(Don’t call me Shirley!)
Ping you later!
