Is This Any Way to Write a Book?

Okay, so I fell short of expectations - I'd hoped to crack the 60K mark - but day-um! All work and no play, you know. It was a weekend . . . .



I watched some TV, too. One of my all-time favorite classics, The Bad and the Beautiful, aired on TCM Saturday night (I love it when Lana Turner asks, "Won't you marry me, Jonathan?" and Kirk Douglas calmly replies, "Not even a little bit." I can only dream of writing such great dialogue.) I did some unpacking and organizing, too, although not as much as I hoped. My husband, on the other hand, was whizzing through boxes like Secretariat in a horse race. But then again, he doesn't have to worry about laundry and dusting and vacuuming and changing linens, either. Plus I've instructed him not to throw anything out unless I see it first. No wonder I only did two boxes. And if you read my post from yesterday you'll know I also read a book.

Four days left, counting the rest of today. I'll check back in on Wednesday.

You needed that weekend!

4 days left? Just over 9k words per day will get you there.

So now that the weekend's over, get to writing!
