Almost made them all up

So I’m at 25475 words now, thank the writing gods (just wrote another thousand or so)… if I write both days this weekend, I may be back to 30K — which is where I was several days ago — by Monday, just in time to take a week off. (We’re going to San Diego next week, and I imagine not a lot of writing will get done. I will, however, get to see Michele Scott! And a lot of animals. And Disneyland.)

Anyway, I’m so relieved at the way the writing has gone, I just had to share.

Have a great Friday night!

    At least someone got some writing done. LOL. This week has been a wash-out for me. I got over my cold that had turned into a sinus infection so I was so far behind on everything. Though I did manage to write a scene today, after 2 days of shoveling. It snowed here yesterday and that was followed by endless hours of sleet. I just love New England.
    Karen, San Diego sounds really good to me right now.

    I saw that you posted the link to your interview. I’m going to read it tomorrow, I’m getting ready to hit bed right now.

    LOL. I just finished reading your feature in the paper. Love it when the agent groaned – “Not another b&b; mystery.” Too funny.

    It was a nice article. Your kitchen looks very cheerful. I love yellow.

    I better get to work.

    Hi Karen,
    So glad that you are able to take a vacation and hope that you’re having fun in California! Gotta relate a quick story. My husband was telling me about a great recipe that I should try to make. He had cut out two of them from the paper. One was Wicked Blueberry Muffins and the other one was the Breakfast meal…and of course I had to laugh. I told him “The baker was my writing instructor.” And you know what he said (because he saw your picture)–“Oh, she’s very young, isn’t she?” I guess he must have thought that if you were my instructor, you would necessarily have to be over 50…
    Have a nice trip home!

  4. Debra,

    Poor you! I wish you were here with me in San Diego, although the kid-adult ratio is less than ideal. 🙂

    I hope you’re feeling better. Take care of yourself — you can always write when you’re feeling human. That’s what I plan to do. Bring on the free margaritas!

    Take care, and get well soon, Debra… congrats on slogging through a scene despite it all!


  5. Debra, I didn’t see your second comment until just now; yes, my kitchen is cheery and yellow (like Natalie’s), only with another darned hole in the drywall from Bunny. I’m glad you liked the article — and it’s true about what Jessica said. Just goes to show, you never know… 🙂

    Feel better!
