My dad sent this to me yesterday. I thought it was really funny until I realized people actually want you to do that, and then I felt panicky. :)
As far as the writing is going, Tuesday was my great writing day: Three and a half hours. Sounds not as good as it felt. I added 2,500 words to my book, and then deleted 500 words of a scene that had to go because it centered around a character I've since gotten rid of. Gotta love revising.
Wednesday was not nearly so good. I had probably less than an hour total, although I knew it would be that way. Wednesday is my tight day, and my scant time was interupted several times. I added a few pages and revised a few more. Overall, passable.
I think what I'm learning is that I'm no where near a full-time writer.
With birthday parties and some other big news I'll share tomorrow, there's not going to be a huge amount of time to make up what I've missed so far. Still, I have less than 60 pages left of this book to revise before another run-through of more detailed editing. Not too shabby.
