Is a new week starting already???

Okay, here I am checking in from last week, and preparing myself for the upcoming week. Only made 4700 words last week--far short of my goal--but am pleased since I decided last weekend to change projects and had to do a bunch of pre-writing stuff (like a rough outline) to get started, so only started the first chapter late Monday evening while I was sitting in my car in a downtown parking place. Don't ask. The rest of the week has been harried, but I've pushed on with each little snippet of time I had to keep working. I've had a few detours that came after I started (made the brother of the MC much too negative in the first pass, but feel I've found my stride with him and his history now), but that's all to be expected when starting fresh.

Have about 300 words today, need 1200 more, but I'm cutting out to make road trip to hear author Suzanne Arruda speak and sign at my closest B&N (75 miles round trip). Think I'll make hubby take me to dinner while we're in town, too. One of these days I'm going to have a book signing event of my own!

Good luck all, and I promise to work again when I get home tonight!

4700 - great stuff!

Have fun at the author visit! :)

And take notes for your own book signing. :)

I love writing when I'm in the van and waiting for someone. I try to always carry a notebook with me.

Enjoy the trip to B&N and dinner out!
