pea pickin and the flow
check out cake wrecks if you haven't. the pic has nothing to do with my post but that should come as no surprise to you. I had a great day of writing! I wrote almost 1k words. for me that's awesome. my characters were talking to me big time. they started last night while I was picking peas. I shouldn't have been doing that because I'm supposed to be off my feet for my knee but I guess my karmic reward was my peeps started talking. my writing took my mind off the fact that Maddy is gone for two weeks :( I'm really excited about this WIP. it's so opposite of what I usually write but it is just flowing. I hope I can keep the momentum going. my goal is to have it finished by the end of the summer and maybe ready to query by Halloween. I'm trying to think positive and keep my mind off of not being able to train for the sprint triathlon I planned on doing in september. if my knee is jacked up like I think it is, I'll be sidetracked for like 3 weeks. I was never much of a hardcore athlete but I am major bummed about this. I suppose I could still do the swim and bike training but I'll know more after my mri. but at least my story is coming together!!!
