Got as far as 50,337 - Spent the afternoon as far as page 38 out of 94...and just couldn't read anymore tonight. Was interesting to return to scenes I had already completely forgotten about :-)

50,244 - Starting at the beginning a do a read through to correct the really obvious mistakes - figured I could get another 500-1000 words doing that if I had needed to :-)

And just to be neat and tidy, I fixed the Archive links so they actually work.

50,022 - I DID IT - I DID IT !

I can't believe I actually DID it - a begining, a middle, and an end :-)



48,131 - closing in on the finish line.

47,008 - Off to work at the store until noon, then back to the keyboard.

45,018 - Didn't get to post this last night as the Internet or the phone system was down all evening. Looks like I have a shot at finishing today!

42,000 - Watching the National Kennal Club Show - loved the little news flash that scrolled across the bottom of the screen saying (soap opera) will be seen tomorrow. None of the story will be lossed :-)

40,153 - Over Forty Thousand words - YIPPEE!

Tuesday, November 26, 2002
I think when I reread this novel, I am going to need to change the name to something like The World's Longest String of Trite Phrases - but, hey - some of them have a lot of words, and that's a Good Thing.


37,025 - one hour to write before 24 comes on.

35,015 - Off to work in my shop today - will try for another 1000 words between customers. Cause there is always time to do pricing NEXT week.

OK - time to bring in the asteroid heading for earth :-)

Bedtime - 33,035

Got lots of excercise jumping up and down from my knitting to the computer but didn't get a lot of writing done. Hard to focus on the story inside my head with the game on - better luck tomorrow :-)

32,213 - half an hour before football starts...too bad I have already used the football game scenario...

31,150 - Wonder how much I can get done during the commercial breaks of Monday Night Football?

Had such an intense dream last night, I added it to the story. Even though I ALWAYS skip dream does add words, doesn't it :-)

Watched skating and still managed to get to 26,026

Really planning on making progress today if I can resist the lure of the NFL and Skating...and the pile of knitting projects around my chair.

At 24,013 - yippee!
