I didn’t get as much writing done last night on my novel as I’ve been doing. It was my first day back at work from vacation. Then I picked up the kitten after work last night and spent quite a bit of time with her and Spook…you know, got to make sure Spook understands she’s still my baby girl, poor thing.
So sat down fairly late to write and ended up only putting down a little over 1100 words…still has me at almost 38000 words for the month, but I don’t want to start slacking now after such a great start. I still need to write 1200 words a day to reach my goal of 50000 by the end of the month. Definitely doable, but not if I don’t keep at it.
I’ve got a few hours before I have to go to work, so I plan to sit down and do my writing before I go in today…hopefully get more than the minimum today. I guess that kind of depends on how many things the kitten knocks over or how many times she tries to jump on Spook before I have to get ready! I’d forgotten how much fun (and how much work) a kitten is…Spook is 6 years old after all, so much calmer than she used to be. But I think she was every bit as active as this little one is…so hopefully they’ll end up being buddies. Aww…idea for a children’s book…kitties with human attributes, adoption, maybe a separation thing with a reunion at the end??? The ideas are there…now to make the time to take care of all of them.
