Final Word Count: july 25, 2011- 1,820 (4 pages); 1.5 journal pages

Let me fill you in on a little secret: typing while drunk is a seriously difficult task. I think it took me twice as long to finish my work than I thought it would. It also didn’t help that I ate a whole little pizza, cheese, crackers and finished an entire bottle of wine. All within a span of we’ll say an hour or so while watching a movie. What a little piggy! It felt so great though, I have to admit. And I haven’t learned my lesson because I woke up feeling fresh and spry without the slightly twinge in my head (even though my neck had a wild kink in it).

With the end of the month looming over me, my fingers are really itching to get this done and ready to move on to the next one. I’m approaching the 45,000 word mark and quickly nearing 90 pages so if all goes well, I’ll surpass the 50,000 milestone and break 100 pages! I think I’m going to have to revise the 180-page goal or at least modify it because if the other stories are going to follow this trend, I’ll be disappointed each month. I really don’t want to have that happen because I am working hard at this even if my efforts aren’t consistent.

It’s an amazing afternoon for this work- steely grey clouds, overcast with occasional sprinkles and cool temperatures that make me happy, exuberant and optimistic

Happy Tuesday!
