Tami's July word count:
Overall word count:
Cups of coffee drank: a latte at the airport
Mindset: wrote on plane listening to screaming kids


Hey, Tami - you managed to get in your words - and plus some! Wow. ;)

Tracy's day 16 word count: LI: 1012 WS: nadda
Tracy's July word count: 21 282
Overall word count: LI: 40 884
Cups of coffee drank: Well, the one that stood out the most was the cup I had while getting my hair cut at the salon. The last time I lifted the cup to my mouth there were clipped strands of my hair floating on the surface from when the hairdresser blowdried my new do. Ick.
Music: I had a Feist day yesterday. When it first came out, I played her CD, The Reminder, until I was sick of it. Now I'm ready to love it again. ;) "Sealion" is amazing and I'd love to see her band play it live. "Brandy Alexander" is cool, too. Oh, and "I Feel It All" is fab (best line from it, the truth lies). I don't care if it came out in 2007 - just get the CD!
Mindset: I struggled to stay focused on writing yesterday. We put up some new shelves in my office (more books=more shelves). When re-organizing the piles of books on my desk for their new official wall-mounted home, I re-read/skim read through a few of my favourites and the day flew by in a blur of other writer's words.

Alright 1k-a-dayers, keep writing those stories that will someday happily distract a reader from getting to their to-do list!

This leaves my July word count woefully short of the mark. I'm going to try and designate more time than usual to writing over the weekend.

Feeling lame because I've been too busy to even get in my regular 15 minutes of writing due to ALA. Even less likely to get in 1k after having all my energy zapped like that. However, after resting today I did manage to pull it together and write 1341 words. Yeay! I'm thinking of a new WIP too, but I think that will have to wait until NaNoWriMo.

Very nice, Awkward Librarian!

I think you have no reason to feel lame... that's a quite impressive word count considering all that's keeping you busy. Plus, a new idea? You can't complain about that.

Best of luck to all this weekend!
