After the Pitches: Day Twenty-Two

Monday, August 30, 2010
Started my day tired. So, I read the last of Stiefvater’s Linger. Beautiful book. The ending was a little too easy regarding where Grace went – and how (no spoilers – but if you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about, probably). I’m going to start Mockingjay tonight!
Caught up on my blogging. It was a wacky week last week, so I didn’t really get any writing done. But a lot of other things got done.
Now? I’m sucking down a Smart Ones Orange Sesame Chicken meal (DELISH!!) and finishing my coffee. It’s weird – I don’t drink as much coffee as I used to. I seem to nurse a cup for the morning. More-than-likely, I will go to Starbucks for a NF latte before my volunteer time at the Scholastic Bookfair Warehouse Sale! I’ll need the go-go juice!
And I opened up my manuscript. I am going to work for 1.5 hours on it. You will see the results in the next line (it’ll be 1.5 hours for me, but only seconds for you):
Today’s word count: 865 words (and I worked for 1 hour)
I’m giving myself ½ for manuscript and ½ for procrastination today. Sounds fair to me!
Initial writing = tomorrow (yeah, right!)
Whole thing = Friday, September 25, 2010
Procrastination = 11.5
Grossed-out Factor = 1
Life = 7
Manuscript = 2.5
