It’s Tuesday! Time to sound off on all the great and wonderful things we have accomplished.
Here’s what I did:
And that’s about it. Luckily, I’m right on pace (as of yesterday…now I need to do today’s word count. It just never ends!)
However, I have a funny – okay, not really funny – story about being on pace because I wasn’t until Sunday. I only had about 3,000 words on Saturday…which was minus quite a bit. Still, I wasn’t as behind as Shane, spouse extraoridinaire, who determined that though he had only 1,000ish written, he was gonna catch up. By the end of Saturday he’d thrown down 7,000 words.
Watching him and feeling like a complete slacker, I banged out another 3,000ish on Saturday too (I wasn’t about to get beat down in my own house). Then on Sunday he walloped another 3,000 and I caught up with the remaining 4,000 I needed.
Yesterday we both wrote what we were supposed to because trying to catch up (which you CAN do, people, with a lot of pain…a lot of pain…but you CAN!) hurt.
Yeah, so that was my week. How’re you guys holding in there?
