Frantic Friday the Fifth!

Frantic Friday the Fifth!

      Friday the Fifth of July was, as today’s title announces – frantic.
      I’m not sure why. Slept in, I guess, unintentionally, and then work and before I knew it – it was 11:50 and I was racing to post a post to keep up with my everyday-during-Camp updates.
      I wrote about 1400 words today – which puts me back on track for my 25k goal. I know, I know, 25k isn’t much for someone who has done closer to 80k during November, but right now I’m struggling between Jack and work and preparing for the move (plus, DOING the move)… so 25k seems attainable.
      I’m cool with that.
      Today I’m on track.
      Tomorrow we have a picnic with Jack’s family and who knows how that’ll go. Hope I don’t oversleep again. *sigh*

Love & Rainbows,

Fireworks & Sparklers!

Fireworks & Sparklers!

      Happy Birthday, America!
      Happy-finally-got-caught-up-to-goal Penelope!
      Yeah, it was a long, frustrating night at work… got stuck doing busy work to clean up after lazy co-workers who have utterly failed to do their own digital housekeeping for ohhh… about three years. There are still about 1900 tasks to resolve.
      *facepalm*
      But this blog is a short & sweet ode to finally sneaking in my word count. Day Four of Camp and I’m on pace to finish a whole day early! Whee! Which would be nice, except I really need to be about 11 days ahead of pace because I’ll be flying to the West Coast and then driving back to the East Coast – by way of Las Vegas and since I’ll be behind the wheel, there will be little time for writing.
      I’ll plot in my head.
      Or something.
      But yeah – most of the second half of the month will be eaten up by the “move”. Thus, I need to work hard this weekend to really push ahead. I want desperately to finish “Inferno” so I can get away from the series for a bit. Get back to some more fantastical fantasy. Whip out some wars and political maneuverings.
      Which is not to say I don’t love the book – its just that I’ve been mired in it for SO long, procrastinating thanks to H-V being so (wonderful!) slow… I’m ready for a change. And the only writing that has really fired me up lately has been the stuff I’ve done for our bi-weekly gaming sessions!
      At any rate, its just about bed time here.
      Tomorrow is another day.

Love & Rainbows,
