Have several things on my mind today, but didn’t want to write several posts for everything.
I had a word goal last night of 1000 words before bed, and I placed the goal just under 2 hours before I crashed. I made it to 932 words before I just couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer. Plus, I was pretty sure that much of what I was writing that last 20 minutes or so was laden with mistakes, nonsensical words and well… it was just generally BAD. I was happy to have made it almost to my goal though. I have to get some writing done today, and I have two chapters I want to edit. I am hoping for the best. What writing are you getting done today?
Twitter is annoying me more and more everyday with the arrival of the Fail Whale about a dozen times a day now. I really hope they figured out what the problem is, or figure out how much they have grown, and repair the ever growing problem before it gets worse. In that regard, I was also annoyed this morning to see that I have around 880 tweets. What?! I used to have over 2000 tweets. I had one girl tweet me that twitter embellished the #s awhile back, and that they were probably just fixing that. Okay. Except I really had a LOT of tweets. I tweet about 10 times a day at the minimum, and yes of course I miss a day or two here and there. Sometimes I tweet more than 10 times a day. (when you include the @ replies to people). I don’t get where they all went, and I really hope they are all still there. Anyone else having that problem?
I’ve been so anti Facebook lately. It just annoys me to no end, and I cannot even explain why. I did get on a ton this weekend, updated a bunch of stuff and accepted a whole group of new writer friends, so maybe I will pop over there a little bit more. Why do I find Facebook so miserable to use?
On my Wedding
I promised to post a few professional pics from my wedding and I have not done that yet. I will try to get a few up during the earlier part of this week. I had no idea there was so much interest, but I’m flattered. 😀 It’s been exactly ONE month today since we got married. I have HALF of the thank you’s done, and I really must quit procrastinating and just finish them. I’m being rude, I know. Happy 1 month anniversary to me. LOL
It’s been so quiet since yesterday afternoon because my step kids went to visit mom. I tried to use some of that time to get some writing done, but my two are still here and seem to want/need something every 45 seconds. I tried to occupy them by taking them to the lake last night to swim, figured I could get some writing done on my netbook, but nope – it rained. We lasted less than 2 hours. Summer is a lot harder to get work done than when they are in school all day long. On a happier note, my son – who had the WORST 8th grade year EVER, so we had no hope for Freshman year, just got his final grades for 9th grade. 2 A’s, 5 B’s. What?! Not complaining, very excited for him.
And that’s about it, for now.
I have a couple of posts in the process for this week, I also have a completely overhauled version of Tweets for Writers This Week, I will be posting tomorrow. Life is good. Hope you have a fantastic Sunday!
