Some Good News
I know it’s Word Count Wednesday, but can I just vent a bit about last night’s America’s Got Talent? I mean, when Piers kept walking off I just thought, how unprofessional. He is getting paid quite a bit of money (a million dollars I heard!) to sit and critique people and he was acting so childishly. I know Howie annoys him, but really? I wish he could just express himself better verbally instead of having to walk away so often. *deep breath* All right, rant over. Weren’t there some talented people shown last night? I loved the impressionist who did Miley Cyrus and the Kenyan group. I’m interested to see tonight’s show, that’s for sure. Anyone else watching it?
As for my word count, I am pleased to say I got in 2500 words this week and my characters are really starting to take shape. It’s exciting for me to work on something new and I’m so glad to have a direction.
I also have some news that is pretty wonderful to me. I’ve made a summer deal with one of my older children so that I get one hour per day to write and she will take care of the children. I am almost giddy at the thought of having an entire hour to just write. As you can imagine, my writing is done in snatches of time currently and an hour seems like an eternity. A wonderful, beckoning eternity. So I’m thrilled.
How did your word count go this week?
