It was a busy week here at Sandersonville. And I still don't feel like I got anything done.
Only rewrote 11303 words this week. Call it the mid-NaNo slump. Call it the blahs. I'm still ahead of the curve for reaching 50K this month, but I'm a little behind the curve of my personal goal of 60K this month - or a 2K a day average. But I have written at least some words every day for 15 days straight, so I'm not complaining. (Not too much.)
I finished reading 4 more books this past week and as of last night, I'm caught up with the goal of 100 this year.
In other writerly news, the kick off of my revamped business blog - B.E.'s Writerly Space - went kinda okay. I'd still like to see some new followers enjoy the fun, though, so the contest is still open and ready for you to follow along (and get entries). Tell ya what, bring a friend and I'll give you an extra entry - just have them email me after they follow and tell me that you sent them, and I'll give you both an extra entry. Just cuz.
In life news, we raked leaves. Oh, they're still out there in a big long pile stretching thru the middle third of my yard, but they're on their way into the woods. If it hadn't been sleeting, we probably could've gotten more done yesterday. But it was, and sleet stings, so we stopped for the day. We'll resume Monday or something after the snow they're predicting for today melts.
Also this week, we had a minor veterinary thing. Max started developing an abscess under his chin, so off he went to the vet for a day, where they fixed his booboo, gave him steroids, and gave me a bottle of oral antibiotics to administer to Mr. Max for 7 days. Max is cool with it - except when he tries to push me away with his claws. Only one small scratch so far, so I'm chalking this in the win column so far.
Other than that, it's freakin' cold in SW MO, but probably less so than a lot of you have to deal with, so I'll save my whining for my southern friends. (You know who you are.) ;o)
How are things in your world lately?
