soup's off cover

Observation: I’m almost frightened to go back and look at the two previously posted days because the typos in this one were so bad…and I’m sure there might be more.

So, you probably noticed that I didn’t write yesterday. It might have been a good thing because I came up with a direction to go in. Yippeee!

Update: I will try to write another passage for today so that I can closer to where I should be, but a cup of tea and sustenance are in order.

Total word count: 18046

for yesterday I would have been behind by: 291. If I don’t write anymore today, I’ll be behind by: 1958.

First off, I really felt like I was back in the blogisphere this month despite having two weeks where my body wanted to make me feel miserable, so yay, I was miserably happy?

And, I still seem to love the exclamation points! Woot! Continue reading
