Thank God for providence!
Said providence being when I got up this morning...to find that the clipboard on the side of my computer hutch had fallen to the floor, after eight-plus years of staying put (and my forgetting its existence for the bulk of the last four). In the clipboard: the lunar calendar month print-outs for book 4 that I couldn't remember where I'd put (my memory is nowhere near what it was before the major depression of last year) and that I'd been expecting I'd have to ransack my apartment in search of for an indeterminate amount of time today. Wow! =D
Today's a wonderful day: I got the ball rolling with book 4 writing again, after a hiatus of four and a half months. Yippee, yippee, yippee!!
Annnnd, in case that wasn't enough, today's writing session put me over the 100,000 word mark for 2008 writing year-to-date. YEEHAW!!!
Off to celebrate by breaking out the first bottle of Trader Joe's Spicy Cider for the autumn and scarfing some mozzerella sticks--assuming I can get my feet back on the ground! =D
So good you found your notes on the lunar calendar. I am quite familiar with the feeling of not remembering where I put things away.
WONDERFUL on you doing book 4 writing. So glad for you. Congratulation on passing 100,000 word mark.
That's fantastic! You must be so incredibly thrilled to find the calendars and get book 4 rolling all within the space of 24 hours. Congratulations.
I'm quite impressed with your output too. I'm only just past 30 000 according to my calculations.
*hugs* Such exciting news!
Yes! It was wonderful to get enough other stuff cleared away that I could just focus on that.
30,000 would have been a very good year before I moved out of my parents' home. And don't forget, you have school on your plate as well. =)
*hugs back* I'm thrilled! Now if only the temps would drop so I can eat well and sleep well again! (A bag of popcorn, chips, and 4 mozzerella sticks for all of Sunday isn't the best intake!)
Ooo... no, not really the best. Still, if it keeps you going... it's certainly better than not eating at all.
I only started counting from about March, so I have a bit of leeway there. Still, I hope to do better next year.
Corn on the cob for dinner tonight, which is at least a little healthier! And maybe fresh-cooked green beans later, if the appetite rouses. =)
Yes, I think not having the thesis on your plate will really help with other projects! You've put a LOT of time into that thing.
Having been in that state for a while (the whole can't seem to get the writing going bit), I have to say...
And good luck with your writing. You're doing better than I am right now. I'm currently sitting at 29,467 words (64 pages) on my current project with a total of 42,000 words written on my stories (not including my notes) this year.

Thank you! It's nice to have the fall writing 'season' well underway, even if the weather's trying to convince me it's not fall. And being 'unstuck' feels soooooooo good!
Well, you have a LOT more of a hurdle than I do! All I have is two cats to distract me, not your task of taking care of a family (even if that is just a husband at present). I hope whatever your current project is decides to behave before you get even busier. =)
