Five for Friday

1. I got to 25,000 words! Actually it was more like 25,156. I'm happy with it, and now I'm really getting a good feel for the story.

2.We're taking the kids to the movies later today! Groupon had a great deal last weekend where you could purchase 2 tickets for twelve dollars! Normally going to the movies costs an arm and a leg, but it won't be too bad with our deal. We're thinking we'll see either Puss in Boots or Arthur Christmas. I would like to see the new Muppets movie, which I've heard wonderful things about, but I think the kids prefer cartoon animation.

3. I'm still working on my other Witch project while doing my NaNo WIP...and I started that one ALL OVER again (the witch one). It was only about 26,000 words in, but that's a lot of writing. The reason for scrapping it and doing it over? I just wasn't happy with the progression I made. The other day I went over it and decided it was lacking something...that I couldn't quite figure out. I still love the idea and I want to finish it, but I also want to be happy with what I have down, even if it needs A LOT of editing. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made I order to better the story, and in this instance it was twenty six thousand and some odd words.

4. Can you guys believe it's already December? I have yet to break out the tinsel and decorate the house, but we're getting a real tree and I want it to last as long as possible so we'll probably do that stuff later on in the month.

5. I'm leaving you all with well wishes. Hope you have an awesome weekend. Maybe you'll get some Holiday shopping done! Another thing I need to add to the list.


  1. Congratulations on reaching 25000 words! That's awesome! Have fun at the movies. I can't wait until my son is old enough for it. I have a few decorations up, but more important to get my cards in the mail and the gift shopping done. Have a great weekend. :)

  2. Great job. I took my girls to see the Muppets, and they enjoyed the movie.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Yay for rising word counts! Great job. :)

    We haven't done any decorating either. Been so busy!

  4. Yay for reaching your goal! That's awesome. I'm sorry you had to start the other project over, but I know the story will be better for it. Good luck!

  5. Scrapping 26,000 words is painful!! But getting it right makes up for it. It just takes a while...

    Have fun at the movies!

  6. Good job! I actually took the kids to see Arthur's Christmas this weekend and while it had a happy ending, I was worried for several reasons throughout the beginning. The image they painted of Santa Clause wasn't exactly what I would have chosen to be honest . Hope whatever you picked was awesome:)

  7. Woot for the word count. I can't even fathom that it's December, and that my birthday is coming soon. Where did the year go?
