I have been busy trying to make up for lost time, and I hit the ground running yesterday and didn’t stop until about 7:30, when Terry couldn’t hold dinner any longer. But it was worth it because it was a good writing day for me.
After a light breakfast of an asiago cheese bagel and a glass of milk, I spent some time answering the morning’s complement of e-mail. Then I made Terry’s corrections to three chapters and sent them off to Judy and Roberta to proofread.
I took a break to make a couple of phone calls and then started writing, only stopping for a couple of bathroom breaks. Things in the story are moving right along, and by the end of the day, I had another 9,300 words done. That puts me close to 60,000 words total and closing in on the end of the book. If I can keep this momentum up, I’ll be happy.
After dinner, we watched TV for a while, and I got an e-mail from Judy returning the chapters I had sent her to proofread earlier in the day. We are supposed to have the possibility of some bad weather coming in by Monday, with lots of wind and rain and waves as high as twelve feet. It sounds like a good time to stay home and write.
Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an RV camping journal donated by Barbara House. Barbara makes several variations of these, and they all have pages where you can list the date, weather, where you traveled to and from that day, beginning and ending mileage, campground information including amenities at RV sites, a place for campground reviews, room to record activities, people met along the way, reminders of places to see and things to do the next time you’re in the area, and a page for notes for each day.
To enter, click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name (first and last) in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed.
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
Thought For The Day – Stop saying you don’t have the time. Start admitting you didn’t make the time.
Nick would let Max, the cat, in the library. So would I.
Your “Thought For The Day” is so appropriate for ALL of us. It’s going on the mirror and refrigerator.
