Time gets away from you

What I'm Reading: Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyers and In the Country of Men by Hisham Matar.

What I'm Working on: Attempting to get 30k to 40k words of draft 2 written.

Time really does escape us doesn't it? I can't believe it's already August 10th. I've missed a few writing days as I get ready for my favorite high school to start back and taken a few days to visit family. I'm to the point where I need to write about 7 pages a day to reach my monthly goal. I think I can do it, but I have to actually do it, not just think about it. That, of course, means that my blog may be brief and shoddy for a several days. Oh well.

However, the fun I had Friday was rejuvinating. I was in the Ft Worth area and went to Summit Climbing Gym and scaled rock walls for about four hours. It was so fun. I'll post some pictures later, but for now, I have to walk my crazy dogs. They are being wild.

Good luck on the writing. I'm getting distracted by the Olympics. They're covering way too many events -- too easy to find something that interests me.

I need to get back to reworking the back story for my WIP, but I'm torn between moving forward and fixing it later, or fixing it first in case I discover something that needs to be filtered throught the first 12 chapters I've already written.

I'm a queen of procrastination. Besides, I have a hair appointment in an hour!

The summer flew by for me, too. Climbing wall sounds like a blast!
