Don't Hate Me Because I Blog So Little Lately

Yes, I'm here. No, I didn't wait this long to blog on purpose. I just didn't think I had anything to say. I still don't, but I'm here.

Now it's only 3 days until the Romancing the Tome placements are announced. I'm not thinking about it, though. No, not at all.

We have tomorrow off from school. YAY!!! A whole day off and nothing pressing to do.

I got some catalogs from the Scottish Tourist Board and now I'm getting excited again about going to my happy place.

I'm on day 15 of my 100 words a day! Some days I want to write forever. Some days it's hard just to get to word 100.

Today I decided to be a little more daring in my life. After all, life is too short to be afraid to do things or to wait for things to happen. One of my 2 best friends was in San Antonio with her kids and her mom for the weekend (the boys had a soccer tournament). I didn't know if we'd get together. Finally I just grabbed my keys and peeled out of the parking space to go meet them. We only had a few hours together, but it did me a world of good to see someone who is so important to me. (The last time was the week before Nationals in Reno almost 2 years ago. They live in Las Vegas.)

I entered my Scottish contemporary in yet another contest. I'm aiming to have my query ready to be mailed by the end of this week. It's possible. Probable. Okay, it must be definite! I'm learning that I have to suck it up and just get my writing related work done. No excuses. If I want it badly enough, I've GOT to work!

Okay, I'm off to write my 100 words for Sunday.

Good luck with your 100 words a day - I think that's a great goal! And good luck on the contests. I'm getting two of my mss ready to go as well.

Keep going on the 100 words! :)

Michelle, it's started to feel like just another part of my day. There's no question on whether it will get done. Just when. Hey! That's how I feel about me getting published! Not if, but when...

100 words a day is more than I've been getting in.

I like the idea of pushing to get those 100 words out every day. It's nice to see reasonable, doable goals; refreshing after all the anxiety-ridden "680,000 words written in 2006!!!" posts the blogways were jammed with for a few days there around New Year's.
