Yesterday I sketched out a short story plot and didn't write a thing for SS. Alas - it was still writing and the story is set in Redgrave High (the SS world) so I'm counting it for my 1k. ;)
We had a wicked thunderstorm last night and Willow, my yellow lab, was a basketcase. Shaking, trying to hide under the bed (but she's huge and can only hide her head). I finally got her to cuddle ON the bed with me and I cranked the TV, turned the fan on high. We watched Rise of the Lycans together (I swear she was keeping up with the story) and she finally settled down.
I searched online this morning, looking for tips to deal with thunder-fearing pups and discovered cuddling with said pup is NOT the way to go - only reinforces their fear. Sigh. But she was really cute....lol... This doggie parenting is tough. ;) And it's still raining this morning....lovely.
Anyway - have a great 1k today!

What a day it was! I didn't get as much as I wanted done, but I made ground. My word count isn't huge, but I actually went over 2 1/2 chapters of editing/rewriting. I'm not super happy with them still, but you have to keep working at it to get it to the point of finished, right? I spent most of my day, waiting for the phone to ring or the plumber to call. At 3:50pm, 10 minutes before their latest time given in their window of arrival, I called them. Apparently they were stuck on a service order job and would "try" to get here. Not fun! They did show up at 5:45 and we now have a brand new garbage disposal! WOOT! Also, the mail made my day. I got as ARC of Firelight I won on Denise Jaden's blog! Plus, my husband FINALLY got the license plates to his '50 truck that we've been trying to register for four plus months! Amazing how a day can turn around
I hope today will be a better day, as I plan to venture out of the house for the first time since Thursday (except when I went to the grocery story Sunday). Maybe the mojo will be a little better for writing than home is right now.
How is 1k-a-day going for everyone!? I hope you're still with us and hitting those word counts hard. You never know when we'll give a "surprise" book away to one of our participates. Check back later this week!
