Hope everyone's getting their holiday (or regular) weekend off to a great start!
This morning, Evan and I went to see The Last Airbender, which was beautiful (I didn't watch the series, so I can't judge, but Evan wasn't thrilled.) But it was sooo pretty!!! Special effects are so amazing these days.
Our itty-bitty town of 2,000 has an annual Fourth of July festival right in the 300-yard strip of "downtown"--which basically meant that every side road, including the one we live on, was double-parked with cars. When we got back from the movie, we sauntered down the hill to check it out. It was totally lame, as always, but I did get some boiled peanuts! Yummmm. Then I gorged myself on them and took a nap.
Thanks for all the supportive comments on my self-indulgent post yesterday. Though the feelings were there, I did mean it to be humorous, and I'm glad that came across. :-) I'm in higher spirits today--so high, in fact, that I'm making myself a little public commitment:
Current wordcount, as of 5:05pm EST, July 3rd: 57,952 words
Wordcount as of Tuesday AM, July 6th: 64,000 words.
I'm really hoping to be done before July 15, but that is my cut-off date.
As in holding tradition, I'd like to have a contest to celebrate the completion of my second novel. Details and such to be provided at a later time.
So, I hope everyone has a fun and productive weekend, and if you're nearing the end of your WIP, try not to give into this temptation:
