Sunday Update - Week 44

Back again for another week in review. 

First off, I hammered down another 8500 or so words last week.  I had hoped to be around 37K by the end of the weekend, but I'm at 32.5K this morning and I don't see me cranking 4500 words out today.  Still, pretty happy with the progress.

Tomorrow, I will finally let the cat out of the bag about what I'm working on.  I think it's old enough now it can survive being public. Risky for me at this stage, but I hate not talking about it.

For fishing news, see yesterday's Fishing Report.  (I'm actually writing this Saturday night, because I might go fishing again in the morning.)

I didn't read anything this past week because my head was all up in my WIP.

Part of my time was wrapped up in Hubs' car.  It has some kind of weird battery drain on the new battery we put into it in January.  We took it to the shop - they can't find anything wrong with the alternator, there's no weird shorts or grounds or whatever.  They said it had to be the battery.  He took the battery back to the store.  They ran a check on it and they couldn't find anything wrong either.  So, we're letting the car sit.  Next time he tries to start it and the battery is dead, we're yanking that puppy out, taking it there in my car, and I'm going to pitch a hissy.  He will have a new battery by the time I walk out and we will not be paying for it.  (I told Hubs to tell them they DID NOT want his wife coming down there.  LOL) 

Another big part of the week was raking leaves.  Whoof.  I swear there are more leaves this year... then Hubs laughs at me.  Well, there could be more leaves this year.  But he's probably right that it just feels like there are more leaves.

So, what was up in your worlds last week?

Oh, and before I forget... god, I'm so bad at marketing sometimes... Blood Flow will be on sale Monday through Wednesday.  You know, the political thriller on sale for Election Day and all that.  It'll be 99cents for the duration of the Kindle Countdown Deal.  Not sure of the exact start and stop times - check your local listings.


  1. I'll try to remember to pimp it! Until politics are in the trash, I'm mostly avoiding social media.

    Yay on the new words. I've been revising, re-revising, editing, and managing just enough new words to keep me in the running for NaNoWriMo.

    I hate DST. Just sayin'... I was up early like you today. I hope you went fishing. I drank so much coffee my stomach lining is peeling away.

    Cool weather here with rain due tonight. Stuff to do today but I'm brain fogged. Did I mention I hate DST?

  2. Yay for new words! I'm looking forward to reading about your new project. :-)

    I got some work done this week, but I'm afraid to go count up the words. Too many family appointments this week, last week, the week after. Good thing I didn't sign up for NaNo!

  3. Most of the leaves are still on the trees but a few are falling. We probably won't be raking until December.

    I hope you find out what the deal is with the battery. I think I'd insist on a new one only because that's the only new thing you've added.

  4. Keep on making that lemonade! And, definitely good advice on avoiding media until the count comes in. OMG it's crazy talk everywhere :)
