April? Meh

It wasn't a super duper month so I'm not doing any happy dances right now, and I really have no excuses. I just couldn't find my spark for most of the month. I think my muse went on spring break and left me high and dry.

I managed to eek (or is that eke?) out 21949 words all month on 3 different wips, none of which I finished. I did, however, add some new words to a manuscript that's in for complete renovation, but I don't think it was more than 1000 words. I generally don't count new words added during editing (though maybe I should).

I'm going to strive to do better in May though got some big doin's this month (my sister and b-i-l are arriving this Saturday evening with my new niece. They adopted a baby girl in October and they're finally making it out our way. I'm so excited!!)

So, here's to a prolific May!!

Those aren't numbers to sneeze at... is that the saying? LOL You did much better than me! And OH, congrats on the new niece! Family is so amazing. Where did they adopt her from? Locally (to them) or internationally?

Thanks Kealie. I'll take whatever I can get. I guess I thought it would be more, but heck, that's a good chunk.

My sister and her husband live in Idaho and they adopted their little girl in Texas. They did think about an international adoption, but it was much more expensive.

I've warned my sister that I'm going to monopolize the baby. I haven't had a baby to cuddle for 9 years!
