Daily Word Count & 7 Random things about ME!


Here is my running total for today. As you can see it is about half of what I did the previous two days, but its better than nothing! So it bring my running total to:


I'm starting to get a bit distracted so I'm going to take a break and watch some Project Runway :) Maybe I'll come back to it later.

1. I hate the thought of biting down on a dry toothbrush. It makes me cringe like nails on a chalkboard does for others.

2. I would love to do competitive ballroom dancing. I'm hoping that when we move to our next duty station that there is a good program near by.

3. I love the smell of coffee, but I do not love the taste. I'm trying to acquire the taste but it's definitely not at the love stage yet.

4. I really want to live in Europe, preferably Ireland. Just for a little bit :)

5. I really wish I could have a do-over with college. I wouldn't rush through it and I would probably be an English major.

6. My dream job would be a published writer, or an editor in the world of publishing.

7. I worry too much. I play the what-if game all the time and it really annoys Jordan :)

So it looks like I have a lot of things I WANT to do, don't know if that classifies as facts or not. I really had to think about this and I think I need to add some more unique things to my life, it's kind of a boring list. But hey, that's me! I encourage everybody to do this (Toni & Trav!). Have fun!!

Write Away!!

So just wanted to put my good news out there. I have spent the past two days writing, yes actually writing. But the good news is that my word count is.... drum roll please...


I think I will post my running total each day. I know it won't be anything too exciting for most of you, but it makes it to were I feel a little more accountable to others. Yes I am patting myself on the back!

Hope everybody is having a great Monday!

I need my own space!

While Jordan has his own lovely office I've been left too find my own "special" place to work. For a while I was using our dining room table but today I got so frustrated! I mean come on, the dining room table? That's where we are supposed to eat, not where I'm supposed to get inspired and spend my time writing away! So today I've opted for the floor in the living room. I actually like working on the floor best, but as you can see it's kinda tacky and Maverick thinks he needs to help and ends up trying to lay on my laptop because it's in my lap and that's exactly where he thinks he should be. Ugh! I just want my own space so I can focus on nothing but writing!!

Now wouldn't this be nice!

Ok so maybe I'm dreaming a little bit here but honestly I need something or I might just never finish a story! This is really what I need, just something for me to work at.

Ok I'll be done complaining... for now.

You have to see this!

Ok so while I should be updating y'all on my amazing trip home I have to put that on hold for now. As most of you know I am obsessed with the Twilight Saga (thanks Jenny!) and when I heard that they were making a movie I could hardly wait. Well they have just recently released a NEW trailer for the movie and its amazing. I encourage all Twilight fans to check it out!!
