The good stuff:

     Farmer's Market goodies of corn on the cob and fresh green beans, which were about the only things I ate for a few nights during this wretchedly warm week. Yum, yum, yum!

     Reading 'The Secrets of Fynydov' off LJ on my lunch break Thursday to discover a couple spots of poor wording--then while fixing those at home in the evening, finding a pair of out-and-out spelling errors! Makes me grateful nobody has read it yet, or I might have had to flog myself!

     Slow but steady writing progress on book 4 throughout the week, bringing me to the end of chapter 25 tonight! (The distractions during the week were numerous and rather amusing: crushing 9-hour headache Monday, need to sprint to the toilet Tuesday, phone call and an overly-attentive mosquito Friday, not to mention my cats throughout!)

     On top of that, been having lots of fun with the writing tracker I scrounged up off the internet last Sunday and now keep on my main LJ bio page to update at least twice a day. I like that I can switch it between productive/sleeping/wasting-time-on-tv/frustrated, etc. Too much fun!

Farmers Market corn on the cob sounds absolutely fabulous right now... I could make a meal out of that myself!

Your distractions don't sound quite so fun, though...

All this writing progress is amazing! Can't wait to see the product! ;)

Hope your weekend is beautiful!

Re: Mmmmm....
It was wonderful! Pity they're only around for a few more weeks, and the corn is getting slightly past prime.

The distractions were kinda funny because of variety and timing, though I'm not happy with the fresh mosquito bites on my elbow I got overnight while there's still at least one 'unfed' mosquito at large in my apartment!


It's off to a good start. The only distraction for this morning's writing session was an overly-mushy cat. I hope your weekend is great too!

Interesting little tracker there. Is that a coffee bean?

I'm very pleased to hear that it's all going so well, though I'm sorry to hear about the headache and the warmer temperatures. I hope you're feeling better now.

I had no idea what that thing was supposed to be, but your guess seems a good one!

That headache was one for the books, the worst I've had in years, and I have no idea what set it off, but I'm glad I remembered my long-ignored painkiller box at work--one pill left one month past the expiration date, but it made a difference. Good prod to get a new stash set up, just so I'll never need it! =)

And it's looking like last night was my last night for sleeping on the floor this year. Yippee!

Good news indeed! It's starting to warm up here too. I'm actually in a T-shirt today.

I shall keep my fingers crossed that your headache remains a one-time only thing. It's definitely a good idea to keep up your stash just in case, though.

Yay for that! The week is shaping up to be a cool one, and autumn colors are getting more pronounced, which I'm glad for.

Certainly! Never know when a coworker might need one, either. =)
