I took too long of a writing break. I’m behind on my deadline already. I want my current project (more on it later) finished by November 1st, so, by my calculations, I’m already 22 days behind. This is if I write 1,500 words a day 3 days a week.

1,000 words a day is my comfortable pace. I’m rather slow, I know. I’m beginning to accept that. Maybe it’ll change in the future. After all, on the days I write all day, I am managing to get over 1,500 now. Improvement. Yay!

Anyway, I’m not sure where I’m going to find 22 more days between now and November. I’m seriously consi

Ugh. Interrupted by Pacifier Wars. What was I saying? Oh. I’m seriously considering putting the boys in daycare two days a week. I’m feeling super guilty about that because I feel like I should be able to do everything that needs to be done in the three days a week that I currently have with the nanny, but it’s just not happening. And maybe daycare will be good for them? Most/many parents have to put their kids in daycare full-time. There’s nothing at all wrong with it. I guess I have this mental blockage against it. If I’m home, I feel like they should be, too. I just get nothing done when they are.

I did accomplish a few things this weekend! I wrote and sent out my newsletter (you can subscribe here), just barely in time for the quarter. And I updated my website! It’s not completely updated – I need to email my website designer – but I’ve added a few things to the Extras page.

And I added the first chapter of The Shattered Dark!

Hope it hooks you guys!

I’m gonna go to the gym this morning. I’m averaging a workout about once a week. I need to do better than that. It’s just that, when I go to the gym (or go grocery shopping or run errands of any sort) I usually don’t make my 1,500 word goal. I really have to find a way to get more words in!
