I’m not aiming to write 50,000 words or even everyday. I’m aiming to write on my writing days (at the very least) and making the most of my writing (ideal goal). To help solidify that, I am aiming to write 4 chapter books.
NaNoWriMo Progress Report:
Book 1 is done. Book 2 is a quarter done. Additionally, I already beat my word count for last month. Yes, the whole month. And that just goes to show how much time I spent dallying and why these goals are good ones for me.

This ties in to both updates:
On Friday and Saturday I just did not want to write. I did write, but I didn’t want to. I got some news that I’ll eventually share, but one party needs to share information before I do (sorry for the vagueness). This news caught me off guard and left me with a choice that I felt was very complicated (though it probably wasn’t as complicated as I was making it). After that, a Gloria Weber that isn’t me but likes to use my email address for her spam type stuff subscribed to “adult materials” using my email. Her verification email came through as my daughter was next to me and could read my screen. I was far from happy when that all went down. And fact is I warned her once to knock it off already… So, I wasn’t inclined to write those days, but had. Due to that probably had poorer than I should have had word counts.

I was so close with my ROW80 goals! Where things fell apart was Friday. So that’s 3 days of exercise, no reading, and 3 lunches I studied at. The visiting ROWers would have been fine if I had remembered to do it Thursday like I was supposed to. I ended up forgetting and then was going to make it up Friday.
Anyways, on a somewhat related note… I figure I should explain that new “Please Ask me!” image. I was commenting to fellow ROWer (and WIPpeteer) Melissa Barker-Simpson how most the time when I see anyone ask stuff like “Will anyone be interested in hosting a cover reveal/guest blog/book announcement/whatnot?” I lack the courage to say “YES!” I was half joking when I said I should put a sign on my blog saying I would. And since image design rules my head while doing it (no room for wonky feels or complicated choices), I dove into making it Saturday. So, yeah. Please ask me. I always want to help!
How would you get revenge on an email stealer?
