Monday Morning WIP Open Thread

Good Morning, Everybody!

(Okay, so that kind of cheey only works for camp counselors and kindergarten instructors and then not very well--scrap that)

Hi all,

Not fully back to blogging yet, though I can see it from where I'm sitting. I got about 15,000 words done since I last checked in, 9,000 on the road in San Diego whilst Laura did workshoppy things. 1 week in the wrong time zone, plus writing all day in a hotel room, plus a couple of airplane trips equal brain fry, btw. We got back Friday late and got up Saturday early to do one last day of painting before the weather shuts us down till the spring painting season begins. Everything that had to get painted before winter did, yay. Coming up I've got writing, writing, more writing (~19,000 words left and 20 work days to do it in), taking down my summer office (wah!), and putting in a new back door. Depending on how this week goes, I hope to be back to blogging starting with Friday kitties, but we'll see.

What's everyone else up to? Writing? Not writing? Teaching classes? Hand carving llamas out of peach pits? Whatevah? If you're here and feel like sharing your current goals or achievements, please chime in.

It was an artistic weekend here, with podcasting, music, drawing, and writing, too. Finished a new chapter in my current draft (almost), and did some heavy-duty editing to other chapters. Hacked somewhere around 5K, but wrote the same amount. A surprisingly satisfying "zero" progress. :)

I got almost 2k words yesterday and only stopped writing because I fell asleep. Haven't had a chance to get pen to paper today yet - shopping and putting away and eating. But I'm getting there. I hope to have another 2k day!

High Holidays = brain fry too, BTW
