Don't laugh at me

Alright, I went ahead and joined the RWA. I just had to participate in the Golden Pen... why not, right? So now, my heart and soul will be on display for a bunch of judges to read and... well, judge... So my nerves are just a-rackin'. Here's to hoping I place one or both of my books in the Utah or the National, or both...

Can we say 70,000 words?!?!

Yep, I just passed 70,000 words in Raider's book, I am so close to finishing this one that its crazy, and I'm still actually writing the end. Likely as soon as I'm done writing, I'll go back through and edit it a few times, but the point is, I'm almost done with his book, which means there is (hopefully) one less voice in my head, which also means one less Immortal Guardian in my head.

Grins all around, its a good day!

The Highs and the Lows

Last weekend I set a goal to write 5,000 words in the 2nd Immortal Guardians book. I was so exstatic that I completed my goal, and it put me into major 'motivation mode.'

That was my high.

So you might be asking, "what was your low?"

My low is that I haven't written one word ALL WEEK! I've been so tired after work (not sure why) that I haven't had any energy to write. So basically, my week has consisted of driving, working, cooking, eating, and sleeping; and I just haven't had the time or energy to write!
So I'm going to try to do SOMETHING tonight. I don't care if its just a page, or maybe even a paragraph. Heck, I don't care if all I get down is a flipping sentence (except that would irritate me, LOL).

So, I'm going to try to right my low. Wish me luck!

New laptop

I just got back from the store with a brand-new laptop. I found it way too difficult to try to write on my desktop (which is a complete piece of crap), so my wonderful hubby said I could buy a laptop so I can work wherever the mood strikes me. I've missed that ever since I lost my last laptop (which was just a few days), so I'm really glad I have one again.

Speaking of writing, I better get back to work. I broke 60,000 words, so I'm getting close!
