Well, I'm not allowed to work today seeing as it's mine and my husband's wedding anniversary (the first one, so it's kind of important). So I thought I'd drop in, wish everyone a spectacular Monday and see how everyone's Father's Day went. Mine was full of barbeque ribs and in-laws. Sadly, I didn't get to see my dad (he's on vacation), but I did leave him a voicemail, so there's that.
Writing update: I passed the 26,000 word mark on my novel last Friday. For those of you that don't know, 26,000 words is my nemesis. Many a novel has come to 26,000 words and never gone any further. Not sure why, but that number is evil. So we'll see if I manage to take this novel beyond the threshold of ink-spattered pages strewn about the halls of dead and maimed books, forever doomed to wallow in a pit of darkness. I'll make this a proper novel, I will. I hope to get to 30,000 this week, further if I can.
Thirdly, S.P. Sipal over at Harry Potter for Writers (who is doing a spectacular breakdown of the soon-to-be-announced POTTERMORE) tagged me in a silly little questionnaire last week, so I thought I'd pass on my answers.
1. Do you think you're hot? What is this... 8th grade? No, as a matter of fact, I do not. I find myself too silly to be anything more sultry than cute.
3. When was the last time you ate chicken meat? Last Monday, I think. We had homemade French bread pizza with chicken, peppers, and mushrooms. Tasty.
4. The songs you listened to recently. We'll go with albums. TRON:Legacy Reconfigured - Daft Punk, Night Work - Scissor Sisters, 21 - Adele, and various soundtrack albums: Doctor Who, The King's Speech, Finding Neverland, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Howl's Moving Castle, Lady in the Water, The Painted Veil, Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, and Becoming Jane. I listen to a lot of music.
5. What were you thinking when you were doing this? I'm really effing hungry.
So, feel free to provide your own answers to the silly questionnaire in the comments. And tell me how your weekend went, your goals for the coming week, and anything of note you wish to share.
