A Good Week

It's been a very productive week writing-wise. I didn't work on Monday because of the holiday, so I told myself I was going to devote most of the day to writing. The hubby was working, so I had the house to myself (no distractions), and my only obligation was a meeting in the evening.

So I pulled out my trusty laptop, settled myself on the couch, and wrote, and wrote and wrote. I checked the word count before I began and set a goal for myself to reach 30,000 words by the end of the day.

I am proud to say...I reached that goal!

Tuesday evening the hubby was out shopping for a new work van, so I once again settled in with my laptop. By the time all was said and done, I'd progressed to being halfway done with my WIP.

Then I found out later in the week that THIS CAN'T BE LOVE was a nominee in Love Romance Cafe's best of 2010 in the contemporary category! If you haven't yet and you'd like to's the link. The winner will be decided through a combination of votes and reviews.

Now if the Bears can beat Green Bay this afternoon, I'd say it will turn out to be a pretty darn near perfect week!

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

Alas, the Bears disappointd us again. Thank goodness for 3rd string QBs!!! Or we might not have scored at all ~ how embarassing would that have been??
Glad you are hard at work with your WIP.

I voted for you, Deb. Good Luck!
You're a much faster writer than I am. A good day for me is doing 2,000 words, and average is 1,000.

About those Bears - Wait til next year, unfortunately.

Ah yes. The Chicago mantra: There's always next year. *sigh*
