Do-Over Please!

Can I get a do-over for June?

No? Really?

A whole month. GONE!

I had high hopes. It was to be the month of Make It Shine!

Sadly, nothing was shining. NADA! Not even the sun. Wow, that all sounds so Debbie Downer. *wah-wah-wah*

This means JULY must blast off and become an explosion of work even bigger than the 4th!

Yeah...I think that's a great image for the work to come in the next 31 days (okay, maybe 28 days because I'll be off to the SCBWI summer conference on the 29th, of course).

My youngest girlie is still recovering from pneumonia. (How long can one kid be sick?) That nasty stuff threw her body into a crazy mess. She's getting there. Time for the energy to go into the writing.

It's a brand new month. One worth a whole lot of shine. (That means you too, Sun!)

So, my friends, I hope to be checking in (a lot like I did in March) on writing days. So if you're around and need and extra push, we can help each other light the fuse.

I have only about this *--* much time today, but I'm shooting for 500 words. Yes...500 words in one hour!

How 'bout you?

Ready, set, write!

Sorry to hear that your precious girl is still not totally recovered. So hard to watch them.

Yes, you can do it.

Sparkle and shine.

I could use the push next month. I'm starting a first draft.

I hope your daughter is well soon.

Halfway through WIP. Hoping to finish by conference time. Thought it would be a nice goal.

I'm so with you. June was a total waste. I can't figure out where it went or what I did . . .

Cheers to July!!!

Let's do it! I have a first draft to finish. :)

Lots to do on my new w-i-p this July and could definitely use a push!

Sorry about your little girl having pneumonia. Poor little thing. I hope she fully recovers super fast.

My June was crazy-busy too. I wrote like a madwoman, but I learned something for the future: during the school year, don't put every possible kid appointment in June.

I'll be writing today too. I'm totally using the conference for extra motivation.
