Yes, we've had some scorching hot days this week and today's another hot one. Seriously. Still, I'm not going to complain. Love summer. Looks like the sky's clouding over though. Might be getting another thunderstorm this evening. I just hope it holds out until I get my daughter home from school.

Remember how I mentioned yesterday that I'd love to secretly reach 40k by the end of this week? Well, it's not gonna happen. But I did get to 36,053 words, and that means that as of last night, I reached this week's goal. That means that I've got about 14k left until I meet my NaNo goal. Not bad when I wasn't sure if I was going to get anywhere near it. Yay. Of course, I don't want to celebrate prematurely.

Although, last night while hubby and I did our weights workout, I pulled out a notebook and started jotting down a list of things that need to happen in the novel to wrap it up. By the time the workout was done, I had four pages worth of notes with enough points to take me to the end of the story. So, I pretty much know what's going to happen from here onwards, just need to fill in the finer details. That's great news.

Today, I made a start on the second round of edits for Wither. I've done the first 16 pages and had to stop because my lappy ran out of juice. I might have to leave it plugged into the wall when I go back to them later. I need as much of the available battery life as I can get. I'd really (really) love to get halfway through by the end of today. That'll make it easier for me to tackle the rest over the weekend. I don't work as fast when hubby and daughter are home because I love to hang out with them, but I've been doing plenty of edits the last month and know that it still works out fine. :)

That's it for me today. We've got a few things planned for the weekend, so I'm looking forward to it. Enjoy your weekend!
