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!

Awww, poop pup. I do all the wrong things to it seems. It's hard not to cuddle them, isn't it?

Any clue why our font is red today, Tracy????

Tami Klockau said...

LOL, that comment was supposed to say POOR pup, not POOP pup! That's an AWESOME typo.

Tracy Belsher said...

HA! "Poop pup", well she is that too. ;)

I don't know why we were graced with the red font, but I kind of liked it.

Hey - how's your base playing coming? My jamming buddy is away for a few weeks and I'm going through "band" withdrawl.

It's not going. I wish it was! I need to get back at it now that I have more time.
