Almost there

I am at 21,000 words! Yahoo!

In other news, we still don't have our Christmas tree up yet. It is ridiculous, I know, but we have had so much going on lately.

Hubby bought my an i phone for Christmas and let me have it early, as you only have so long till it can be returned etc. All I can say is that I am in love.

I've been contemplating adding another doggie or a kitten to our family over the holidays. But then I think...what extra time do I have for it?

1/3 of the way there

Well I didn't write much this week, but the week before I did, so I am now up to 14, 247 words on my children's novel. I plan to have a draft of 32,000 pages by December 31st. I am a little over 1/3rd of the way there.

January 1st I will start rewrites of my screenplay which needs to be 100% done by May 1st as I am applying for a production grant.

I still have a lot of Christmas shopping to catch up on and I'm going to Florida for 2 weeks in February, which means 2 weeks of no writing. So in January my mantra must be WRITE, WRITE, WRITE.
