Yesterday was pretty amazing. It was incredibly productive, happy, and overall quite satisfying. We celebrated a thing and there were gifts that were enjoyed. We had dinner out with family (the company was the best part – the food left quite a bit to be desired), and cake! What day isn’t made a million times better with cake?
The youths and I went to see Power Rangers, too. It was fun, not horrible, kind of campy but not too bad, and I think we all enjoyed it. The popcorn was good, but AMC is a disappointment. The trend now is to have self-serve butter. That’s fine and dandy, but you can’t get the layers, and while I am eternally grateful to my dear friend who comes with me to theaters so I can layer my butter, it’s just not the same when you do it yourself. This is the move that theaters can make that will keep me from attending. Hmph.
But back to good stuff! Words! I wrote all the words, Roxanne (#butcheredQotD). Yesterday got 2,613 fiction words and 3,193 total. I didn’t count the A-Z post because most of those words were already written. Copy and paste doesn’t really count, and I didn’t want to go to the trouble of just calculating the “Before More…” words.
I want to say I knocked the words out of the park. And it feels that way. But I know I can do better! So I will keep working on my speed. So far it’s slow going today, but I still have time. I need to stop worrying so much and just write. I’m going to learn a lot simply by doing, and it won’t feel like work that way.
Okay, I’m off to word more words, and spell-grind more words, and clean at some point because UGH. The cats were fighting this morning and left fur EVERYWHERE, and the living room is driving me crazy, and I need to wash my hands and take medicine because headache.
