Hello again! Time for another update on what's going on here and what y'all are doing out there.
As of last night, Wrongful Termination is up to almost 34K words. That's 13K added for the week, and I took last Sunday off. I still don't know if I'll have this rewrite done by the end of the month, but there's hope. Of course, 13 days and a whole half a book might be setting my sights too high this time. Let's say Valentine's Day and call it good.
Thinking about it now, I'm pretty sure I'm either sitting at the 10th anniversary of the day I started my first completed novel or I'm pretty damn close. This is the year for milestone anniversaries, I guess.
Also as of yesterday, I completed Trail 3 in the trail-making project behind the house. Three separate trails leading from the yard to the bottom of our property, with two connecting trails through the middle and one across the bottom. All I need is to finish taking the second auxiliary trail through from Trail Three to Trail One and I'll be done.
While I was out there raking trails, I came across some interesting rocks. (Our land has a boatload of rocks.) Looks like petrified rock, which I think is neat. I also found a few with little geodes in them. I know it's totally nerdy, but I'm thrilled. Hubs just laughs when I bring another rock inside, but he indulges me.
Oh, and I haven't been posting updates on my reading here - they're over there - but according to Goodreads, I'm 3 books ahead of schedule. Right now, I'm reading an old paperback I got at the thrift store - Gorky Park. (Anyone remember the movie from the 80s?)
Also, at the thrift store, I got the neatest art pieces for the house. One is an old etched metal map of the world (the original is from 1655, but the repro I got is from 1982). Another is a print of a little girl and her dog - but the dog looks a lot like the one we had when I was a kid. And the third is for our smoking room - pintail ducks in flight. =o)
Like is good at the Sanderson household. How are things with you? Remember, you can talk about any happenings in your life, but try to find one positive thing. K?
