Self-Imposed Exile

I'm going to be scarce for the next few weeks. Not completely gone... but gone enough to need a post saying, hey, I may not be posting.

Why?

Life is busy and I have a few projects that I need to attend to. Not the least of which is finishing this darn draft that I originally said I was going to finish by tomorrow, then I said I was going to finish by August 7th. Both of which could have been attainable goals if I had stayed focused and worked.

So now I'm really trying to buckle down and finish. I told my mom, "I'm giving up my Internet until I finish."

"That's SERIOUS!"

That's what I am, serious.

Okay, stop laughing now.

How successful was I?

I managed to write 5K words. That's pretty good (no where near my outrageous goal... but, you know... whatever).

I did fart around a bit. AND I got my voice recognition to work. It's a super cool feature and I love, love, LOVE it. So now I type... and type... and type... Then when I get stuck I start talking out my story and the software types it on the screen. I get "un-blocked" and away I type again. It's fabulous.

John Green announced that July is "National Finish A Revision Of Your Book I Mean Seriously Come On Month" to be referred heretofore as (NAFAROYBIMSCOM). Ha ha ha. I find that funny. I am so participating. I'm finishing the draft this month - period. No more excuses. :)

I have to pack the kids and myself today (perhaps tomorrow) to drive to my parents house for the week. We can't miss the big Fourth of July celebration! Steven is going too, of course. I'm just not responsible for packing him. He's a big boy. ;)

Oooh, oh yeah, I forgot... Seth got his hair buzzed off. He's practically bald. Steven says it's a reverse Samson. You cut off his hair and now he's a wild child!
