Thursday Award

This is what I feel like at the moment. I've had a really busy day and only got 1,000 words written. My head is pounding. My back aches from dragging presentation materials up and down stairs today, then carrying large cat traps from a clinic to my car (four trips). My bed calls my name. I can hear it.

So...1,000 words short of my goal today. You know what? Too bad. Not beating myself up over it. Okay, I already did. DONE beating myself up over it. I can make it up. I WILL make it up. I teach tomorrow, but Lily has a playdate in the evening which means she will resemble the above picture and give me plenty of writing time. I will hit my word goal tomorrow PLUS an extra 250. That extra 250 over the next four days will catch me up!

On to FUN things like...An AWARD!

Thanks to Abby for this. I am passing it along to:

Nutschell at The Writing Nut - If you haven't seen her blog yet, you must check it out. Fun AND informative. You can't beat that. What does she blog about? What doesn't she blog about?
Signings (sometimes she includes videos of the authors offering advice!)
Books to improve our craft
Retreats (GREAT, detailed coverage)
Martial Arts Training (The girl doesn't just write about a characters who can defend themselves, she LIVES it!)

Her pictures are always FABULOUS.

She's doing Harry Potter week - interviews, trailers, her recent trip to The Wizarding World!

She's absolutely amazing and her blog is irresistible! Check it out!


Who has their tickets?

Who is going TONIGHT??

Who has NO IDEA what I'm talking about??


  1. Harry POtter week? You know I'm there! Thanks for the linkage.

    Congrats on the award.

    Since you've already beaten yourself up, I guess I can't tell you not to worry about it. You will and can catch up. I have faith in your abilities!

    I have tickets. I'm going tonight - and dressing up with stuff and thinking of making a mask out of makeup after school today. Obviously I know what you're talking about.

  2. Congrats on the award!

    Hey don't feel too bad. I have to write 5k words today if I want to catch up. Yeah, I've been slacking...

    My Harry Potter wait is 2 more days. Sat @ 5PM. And it's taking it's sweet time to get here.

  3. 1,000 words sounds pretty good to me! Good luck with all that writing :) Congrats on the award!!! I'm following The Writing Nut now--thanks for the recommendation! I have to wait until Sunday to see Harry Potter, so I'm super impatient right now, but I'm trying to hold it together...

  4. Hope you're feeling better today! Good luck on the word count and congrats on your well deserved award!!

  6. Jennie,
    Sistah you never cease to surprise me! I feel deeply honored that you're passing the irresistible blog award on to me, I hope I don't let you down. One of these days, if it ever comes back around to me, you know I'll just end up returning it to you as yours is the only blog I consistently read every day.
    I'm hoping to see you soon!
