Five for Friday

1. I'm almost at 20,000 words for Cursed! My goal is 60,000. I think I can get there by...well...we'll see.

2. I got to take a 'fun' trip to the hospital on Wednesay. Actually, it was kind of scary. I've been having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, way more than normal, and went in to get checked out. Everything turned out to okay, but i was told to take it easy.  Ha! Not likely with three kids under the age of six. Thankfully my wonderful mother-in-law booked a ticket and will be here on Sunday to help make things a bit easier for me. I have less than twelve weeks to go. I think i can make it.

3. There's a wondeful giveaway of (a signed copy) Brodi Ashton's Everneath over at I Loved This Book.  She's a new blogger and would love to add some followers to her list. And Everneath made it onto my anticipation list for 2012.

4. I'm not sure how 'here' I'll be next week with family in town. I want to focus more on writing and getting the first draft of Cursed done before the baby gets here, so I might be a little absent here and there. Then again, maybe I'll have something I just have to share with you guys and I'll jump on more than ever. Just a heads up.

5. Anyone have some awesome music to share with me? I'm looking for some more inspiration and I'm a little out of the loop in the music scene, so I'd love any suggestions.

Have a good weekend!


  1. You can make it! Both with the pregnancy and your first draft. So nice of your MIL to come in and help out. Take it easy and have a nice weekend. :)

  2. Wow, I'm impressed. That's a lot of words with 3 kids under 6 and another one on the way! I have music on my site (either Something for the Weekend or Music for the weekend in the archives) and I will be putting another newish British artist up this weekend who I just discovered. Let me know what you think.

  3. So glad your mother-in-law is coming in for some help! I can't imagine how much work it has to be with three little kids. Rewarding, I'm sure, but lots of work! Good luck with Cursed!

  4. Talk about a ticking time bomb with finishing your book! Twelve weeks isn't long, but you can totally do it!

  5. Oh Prerna... I'm so glad you asked. About music, I mean. You know me and my love for music. So seriously, whatcha looking for? Congrats on CURSED! Sorry about the contractions. Write, write, write! And SERIOUSLY! Whatcha looking for?!


    I'm @sommertales on Twitter. I can get back to you faster there. Lots of love!


  6. Oh goodness. Glad you're doing okay, and I hope you find a way to stay down as much as possible. That's awesome of your MIL to come visit. How wonderful. We'll miss you in the blogosphere, but we understand. I hope you can finish your first draft. That would be awesome! Best of luck!

  7. Glad you and baby are doing okay! And yay for getting some help. What a wonderful MIL you must have. Good luck with finishing your book, you can do it!

  8. How on earth have you managed to get so many words down with three small kids? Amazing! Glad your mum-in-law is coming to help you out - it sounds like you could really do with the rest :-)
