OMG, it's already Wednesday!

And this is my first real post this week. :/

On Monday, the hubby had a day off. So, we had a nice time together while my daughter was at school. Then we had a doctor's appointment that afternoon. I didn't do any writing and hardly any Internet stuff either. Then yesterday, I was busy adding new words to UC but didn't add as much as I wanted because I was distracted by other things. Mostly updating website-type stuff.

This morning, I got started a little later than I expected and stopped @ 34,161 words. It's not so bad, I suppose. But because I would like to finish this first draft by the end of the month, I can't help but feel that I'm running out of time. Lol. Still plenty of days left, but with so much going on in the story, sometimes I feel like I won't get it finished in time. I mean, there's no real deadline, it's all part of my personal 2009 goal timeline of writing/revision. ;)

There are a bunch of projects that I want to have finished by the end of the year, because I've got new plans for next year lined up already.

Yesterday, I read the first story in Neil Gaiman's book, M IS FOR MAGIC. It's called The Case of the Four and Twenty Blackbirds. It's a noir detective tale featuring Mr. Horner. It also happens to feature a bunch of Nursery Rhyme characters and has a twist ending. It was really clever, and funny. I really enjoyed it! I've also started to read THE LAST DAYS. This is the follow up to the Scott Westerfeld book I read last week, PEEPS.

Well, it's time for me to go now. Today is our day off from lifting weights, which is just as well because I'm still sore from the last two days. Have a great day!
