Quote du Jour:
â€œIâ€™m not bad. Iâ€™m just drawn that way.â€
–Jessica Rabbit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Thereâ€™s just something about the first cup of coffee for the day. Itâ€™s like it warms you right all the way down to your toes. De-lish.
Worked out last night. It was great. Walked the treadmill for about 15 minutes and then moved to the bike for 15 minutes. Read my book the entire time and I have to say that it made the workout fly by. Ran to pick up DS and then went home and ate two corny dogs (bad diet, I know) while he watched The Inredibles.
I feel so much better about myself. Physically and mentally. I feel refreshed and like I have more energy. Just the things I wanted. Of course, when I mentioned it to DH this morning on the phone, he said, â€œI told you so.â€ 😛
Stayed up late last night. I have completed the first three chapters of a new short contemporary novel Iâ€™m working on. Woo! So far just under 5000 words. I upped the goal from 35K to 40K because I think Iâ€™m going to enter it in a contest. If I can get the first three chapters polished up enough to send. And Iâ€™ll have a to write a synopsis (EEK I hate those things. I suck at them).
So anyway.. Iâ€™m excited about this new project. More so than the medieval (which is still in the works. I really need to finish that). Iâ€™m also doing something totally different â€“ Iâ€™m writing in the order of the story. Instead of sporadic scenes. :wigglebrow:
And as far as the serial goesâ€¦whatâ€™s that? Bad me. I havenâ€™t written a word on the current issue I need to be writing. Been too distracted with this other stuff.
So.. rejectionâ€¦ Ha! I laugh in the face of rejection!
Letâ€™s seeâ€¦what else? I have no idea. The kiddo is trying to get sick. Heâ€™s been feeling puny these last few nights with a slight fever. And heâ€™s stopped up. DH is sick too. At least heâ€™s in DC and canâ€™t share his germ with me.
Well.. itâ€™s off to work I go.
