    Ok, no new word count progress on current book (until I finish here then I WILL WRITE!) but I've done 2 (or 3) blog posts and a TON of research.

    Ok, off I go. Please refrain from sending flaming cats and dogs in my direction while I'm writing

    Why say it in 10 words when I can say it in 50? Oh, wait...

    I just want to remind everyone you can include the word count for blog posts in your total. Blog posts are writing too.

    This week was a slog. Here's hoping my efforts are less painful next week.

    Words: 5441

    blog posts: 5

    Poems written 6 - I know it's silly to mention poems written. But I'm doing a challenge to write a poem every day for 2013, and it is a word exercise, so it does feel like it's something that is furthering my writing, so I will go ahead and mention it.

    Call me the 'Sweetie of Deletie'.

    I need a new name for the first book of what used to be 'Source's Code', so maybe I'll call it 'Once Upon a Time in the Mustard Jar' until something else pops into my mind.

    I wrote 640 words in this new thing that Brian inspired. I don't know if it will turn out to be a novel or just nothing. The biggest thing is that it is fiction but not a press release.

    Oh...and the new lappie is all high tech with Windows 8 and it is really better for surfing than writing and accounting so I'm going to learn to love the desktop, and Brian is going to learn Photoshop.
    I'm designing 'Full Time' for Aquarius Custom Jewelry. Come see the sparkling fun. My work is featured on Page 1!
    I'm editing the 'Sensible Man' I STILL love these unpaid gigs

    A poem every day for a year? Ack! Definitely worth reporting. Maybe in February I'll take up the challenge and try a poem every... week! For just the month of February, mind you.

    As for me, not so great a week:

    Tuesday: Optometrist appointment, no words
    Wednesday: Dentist appointment, no words
    Thursday: Allergist appointment, drive Ally to Oakville, about 6 pages hand written
    Friday: Appointment with Registered Nurse Practitioner, no words written
    Sunday: Stayed home from church and did all the housework and stuff I didn't do during the week, about 650 words written

    This week: Working at the church three days, and hopefully getting more written than last week.

    Yep. A poem every day. I missed a couple days. But I'm trying hard to treat it like something I do for myself. It's not like I have to impress anyone, it's just words and rhythm, and most of it is stream of consciousness.

    Good luck with getting more time to write - I think it's great you fought to get what you got.

    Between an article for our historian's quarterly Historical Wyoming and a blog post 3,110 words

    I came in third place in the AW Poetry Resurrection Contest for my poem Plum Rum (poems & winners here password citrus) plus got the special mention for originality and application of form.

    Downloaded Sigil & Calibre and learned how to convert files to kindle etc including pictures (which I needed but was worried about coming out right.) Now I can do the mobi dance!

    Nannerize me!
    It's Friday already.
