Reading Challenge and Writing Challenge

Okay, I may have seriously lost my mind.

My reading challenge is still in progress. This week's read, already under the belt, was A Sacred Trust, by Sharon Mignerey. I had to start on the weekend to make sure it would get finished

because . . .

I'm also involved in a writing challenge with
Sherry Davis
, and a crew of other great writers.

Goal each day: 1,000 new words.

Yesterday, I had to edit 60 pages to get the 1,000 new words in (believe there were some plot holes big enough to run a semi through -- so yep, it took a 1,000 words to fix those)

However, I made it. And the work actually, well it actually works -- on page that is.

After grading a basket of papers (yep, still riding herd over the 3rd graders), throwing a few stinky clothes in the wash, cleaning the kitchen, I'm burying myself in the computer for my thousand word quota tonight.

Happy Reading and HAPPY WRITING

Read 'Geek High' by Piper Banks.

Good job on all those words.

I'm hoping to be as prolific this weekend.

I applaud you for not starting your word count until after what had already been done. I'm blazing a trail of my own rules through this puppy. If I have to go over a scene three times, that's three separate word counts. Sheesh...makin' us all look bad. :P

Way to go on your writing challenge! You, L.A. and your friends are an inspiration :). How many words have you completed so far?

S- it has been a long time since I've been able to catch up on blogs and reading and writing. Your new blog site looks great.
