Status Update

6,133 words officially.

Not where the schedule says I should be. I'm under. But close.

It's a first effort. I just spent the past two days traveling and visiting my parents. The fact I got anything done is an accomplishment in my eyes. :)  Though what tiny competitive streak I have sees how well my friend who has been doing this for five years is doing... and I feel a lot less proud, I feel disheartened kinda.. Amazed and impressed by her for sure, but very humbled.  Clearly I'm tired, admitting what a douche I am.

In other news, I feel like I'm in the never-ending scene right now. I need a way to.. speed things up... Though that may not make sense. We'll see. Tonight I can just tell I'm done. I'm tired. I've got a nasty headache.  My husband is in bed sleeping, it's time for night night.

So good night. :)


  1. 1. You're not a douche!
    2. 5 years experience vs. 1st try - you can't even compare yourself and/or consider it a failure. You're actually *doing* it (which I would love to do one of these years!).

    I'm finding your process totally inspiring! be able to write again!

  2. Awww! Thanks Dee! I get discouraged really easy when I'm tired, that's what I'm chocking this up to. Honestly, for me, getting to 6,000 words this fast is HUGE, just HUGE. So I'm quite happy in that respect. :)
