BIAWeekend Monday Report

My Monday (and final) report goes like this:

I froze my butt off today!

Well, not really - but it was only 8c/46F all day long! And rainy to boot. It's the middle of harvest and not a single combine was moving b/c everything is so wet it'll take a week to dry out. And here I was worrying about having to bring a fan into the RV from the heat. Ha! I could've used a heater, though. Instead, I just wore warm clothes and tucked an old blanket around my legs and feet. At least it wasn't below freezing like last year during NaNo when I wrote in my van while the kids were working on a TV set. Now, that was cold!

So, other than the cold my biggest problem was that we have only 1 bathroom in the house. Normally this isn't a problem for us - okay, I lie - it's usually a problem - but when things get really bad, we just run outside and find a tree. We have lots of trees and no neighbors within view so that isn't a problem. Well, I don't know if it was the cold weather or if I've just saved it up all weekend, but I had to use the bathroom today - lots - and everytime I ran into the house, someone else was in there. Argh! And no I didn't run back out to the nearest tree b/c it was raining outside. Sheesh. It would've been okay 'cept I was on a roll and instead of going when I shoulda, I acted like a kid and held on until the last possible minute. I tell ya, at one point as I ran across the lawn, if dh had laughed at me (like he always did when I was preg), I woulda lost it! Yeah, you can laugh - me too - now!

I stopped writing at 10 tonight b/c I'd reached the end. I'm 20k short of what I need, but when I hit a wall, I jumped over the spot and picked up at the next scene so now I get to go back and fill in the blanks. Also, most of what I did yesterday and today was dialogue so I need to go back and add the layers.

Okay, so here we go:

Total words for today: 7334

Pages written today: 37

Total percentage complete: 70%

Thank you Dee! I couldn't have done it without your support.
