May Challenge Update!
So far my time looks like this:
5/7: 0 (I know. I KNOW. *sob* I cleaned the basement instead.)
5/8: 0 (too many people at my house last night)
5/10: 0 (although I did write blog posts for next week. That doesn’t count though.)
May Total: 26,053
Remember my goal is 70,000 words, which I’m still hoping to make. I get a lot of writing done on the weekends because I’ve been packing all my stuff up and heading off to the coffee shop for 6-8 hours at a time to just work. Not having anywhere to go sort of forces work out of me, and I work really, really, really fast. Also, I’m drinking my weight in Moroccan Mint tea and skinny white mocha lattes. I’ve even been coming in enough that I’ve gotten over my territorial need to sit in the same seat every time. Which is good, because every time I lost my seat I spent the entire time plotting extreme revenge upon the interloper. So, you know, this is healthier in the long run.
(Don’t tell, but I’ve also been watching a lot of Community episodes. Thank god they are only 21 minutes long. I wander around now humming “Troy and Abed in the MOOORRRRRNNNINGGGGG.”)
How are you doing with your May goals?
I’m going to leave you with some High Class Put-Downs, which I swear to God I stumbled on when I was doing research. For once in my life, I was not procrastinating when I found this little corner of the interwebs.

“Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words?”
