Magnificent Monday

Wow. Monday already.

Because of my internet fiasco, my only real goals for last week were to catch up on my blogging (both posting and commenting) and catch up on my NaNo.

The blogging was easy to catch up on. It is, after all, one of the all time greatest ways to procrastinate. The writing, however, did not come as easy. No matter how hard I tried, I always seemed to remain about 5,000 words behind. Until Saturday.

Saturday was kind of grey and uninspiring. I puddled around until the mid-afternoon when the husband left for a bowling tournament in Toronto, then I put a pot of coffee on, put a Celtic CD in the stereo, and started writing. And writing. And WRITING. By the end of the day I had almost 6,000 new words.

Yesterday I had to take the daughter and her husband to a near-by city to shop, so I didn't expect to get much writing done. It's usually feast or famine with me anyway. And after spending six hours shopping I sure didn't feel the urge to write.

But I pulled out my lap top anyway and much to my amazement I churned out another 2,000 words which caught me right up to the day 15 target. Go me! :-)

Trust me, no one is more surprised than I that I did it.

Okay, so I stayed up until 1 a.m. to get those last few words in, but who cares? Other than my Business Communications teacher who will have to put up with my snoring in class today.

So, Goals for this Week:

Tuesday we'll have another in my Deadly Sins series, I believe it's time for the Sin of Sloth.

Thursday's poetry form is the Choka.

Friday will be Chapter 14 of my Space Opera.

And you might want to check my Random Writings blog once in awhile. You never know when I might post another excerpt from my NaNo Novel.

I also have three assignments due on Tuesday, a presentation to make on Wednesday, and an exam on Friday.

Looks like I'm back to being busy! :-)

How's your week shaping up?

Oh goody - Sloth. The sin that will send me to purgatory. When are we going to do Lust? I heart Lust... ;-)

Thanks Jamie!

LOL I'm not doing the sins in any particular order so we'll do Lust next week.

Totally awsome catching up. Really. Great job.

Sloth, yes I suffer from that condition, and pretty much all the others too ;)

Thanks LW!

LOL When I took the sins test I had pretty much all of them too. :-)
