is not something I’m going to take sides on, but here’s the deal.  Me and a few others have gotten together and are doing a weekend wordathon.  Kind of the anti-queryfail…a little something positive, because new words make everyone happy right?  If you want to participate, I’m at or you can search for #wordathon.  It runs through Sunday at 6pm!  Spread the word and see you there!

 My story is a cloud!  Fun! 

In other news, I got a TB test for New Job today.  Since it’s already unswollen, I think I’m negative.  This has the added plus of not only describing my tuberculosis status, but also my personality!  I am not sure about New Job…

There will be much writing today.  I’m getting down to the finale and had some interesting little things come to light last night.  Another of those random little details that turned out to be amazingly important later.  Love it when that happens. Maybe I’ll do another word count widget if I get enough to be excited about.  I seem to be hovering around 1,000 words a day lately, so if I can blow that out of the water I’ll indulge.  Wish me luck!

Progress Report!

I’m SO close.  I have a basic plan for the ending, just missing the stuff that comes after.  You know…the stuff I was missing in the first story (pesky conclusions! How you thwart me!).  I gave it a good amount of thought today while pretending to nap, and had a few snippets pop into my head that I will totally be using.  But the BEST part of the day came with the “nap” ending phone call, which was a job offer!  FINALLY!!!! SQUEE!  There’s a chance I’ll be able to eat in the near future! Even though these hypothetical groceries are at least two weeks away, I’m still looking forward to them with that rare kind of Christmas morning joy.  I polished off the last of the Sun Chips for breakfast today, and I’m running dangerously low on stale peeps.  What on earth would I eat for dinner if this were to continue?  We were about to enter a Level Dark Orange. 

Ahem.  Writing.  So this is where I am:

I’m planning on crossing into the 70’s today, but I’m not sure how far in I’ll get.  Depends on my attention span, which has been spotty at best lately.  Maybe 71?
