I wrote crustalogical pages today! I have no idea what that means, but I do know it is a great number of letters which equals a great amount of pages :)

In other news, my child has a talent show tomorrow where she will be singing Jar of Hearts by Christina Perry, not to be confused with Katy Perry. Wish her luck in your thoughts if you get a moment and have a great night!

Birdy is the Wordy!

That song always cracked me up. I was going to use it in its original form and say I wrote bird pages today, but then I hit on an idea, ran with it to the next page and no longer had bird pages, but birdy pages! YEEHAW! And that was only in the last hour since I spent the majority of the day on the couch being sick. UGH!

I'm off tomorrow so should have more than that to report. I love when I love a story. I'm just saying :)

Still writing!

And isn't that a lovely thing to be able to type without the NOT in between? I am really liking my story and that is half my battle, GI Joe.

Was running through some old emails , trying to clean out my inbox when I came across one that I had saved for a blogpost. It was an exchange between myself and my brilliant friend Natalie (I told her I would call her brilliant in the email, so I feel I must follow through!).

Anyway! The conversation went a little something like this (totally paraphrasing except where I'm not):

Me: I want to ass five pages to my manuscript today. Goal that needs done.

Natalie: Really? "Ass" five pages?

Me: LOL! Of course I suck at typing and really should have reread the email before I sent this. I meant ADD!

Natalie: No, you meant ass.

Me: ..... (kept getting three pages written when needed mucho more - at least to 5 a day)

Natalie - being even more brillianter than normal (actual email content!): You know, you keep getting three pages because you were going to ass five. I bet if you bitch five tomorrow, you'll actually write five instead of 3. (3 letters in ass vs. 5 letters in bitch)

Me (actual email content with some judicious editing): You are so very clever!!! I will bitch 5 pages tomorrow then I want to at least biotch 6 on Saturday! We could get truly creative with this. I might actually have to blog about it and tout your brilliance, Natalie!!!! I love it!

Natalie: LOL!


So there you have it! This was months ago, but I believe I will re-adopt the goal thing for pages instead of the words I've been basing things on. 4 pages (Jack pages!) sounds much better than 1000 words.

Off I go to write at least Fraggle pages today! Anybody else want to join in?
