24- There are NOT enough hours in the day for me to do everything I want and need to do! And I'm single!! I don't know how you married people and people with kids can still find time to write. I'm still working on my 100 words a day. I'm still getting something accomplished each day, although it's NEVER enough time for me to totally immerse myself in my fictional world. BUT I'm getting some great scenes, learning a whole bunch about my characters and just today I nailed down a bunch more information about my current hero and his goals, motivation and conflicts!
7- Only 7 days until the Romancing the Tome contest makes the final placement announcements. My contemporary is in there. I really shouldn't be allowed to enter contests. I get way too excited way too soon. I tell myself I won't spend much time thnking about it between now and then, but...
69- The number of school days left in the 06-07 school year. Although I'll be sad to see my kids go off for summer vacation (some more than others), I CANNOT wait for my own summer vacation! This has been a very challenging year, to say the least, and I'll be happy for some peace among the hills of the Scottish Highlands and the rich, green grasses of Ireland.
