Celebrate the Small Things: 8/16

Things I'm celebrating this week:

1)  The scary picture of the demon cat on my post last week did the trick -- I'm writing so he doesn't come get me!
2)  I've finished Chapter 4 in my WIP; that's about 10k words so far, and I'll be starting Chapter 5 tomorrow.
3)  My CPs are so encouraging.  They ROCK!
4)  Thanks to all my Facebook buddies for keeping me entertained during writing breaks ... sometimes so entertained that I don't go back to writing for quite a while.  Heh, heh, heh.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy week and much progress on your writing or whatever you're working on. :-)

Woo-hoo! Congrats on your progress with your WIP! I'm hoping to get to 10K with my new one by the end of next month... And yes! CPS are the best :)

Carol Kilgore said...

You had a great week! I know what you mean about Facebook buddies :)

Robin said...

So glad you are getting down with your writing. I wouldn't want that demon cat coming after me, either!

M.J. Fifield said...

Great progress on your WIP. Way to go!

Catherine Stine said...

Yes, it's fun to be entertained by writing buddies because they're always so very witty.

Obviously writers need two things to get them writing and keep them writing: A demon cat and a Crit Group that won't let them get away with self-pity. I have one essential ingredient, now I'm off to find that cat.

Jocelyn Rish said...

That demon cat is still scaring me! Glad to hear you are making progress on your WIP - go, go, go! :-)

J.L. Campbell said...

Sounds like you're making lots of progress.

Jemi Fraser said...

Good for you! CPs are truly worth their weight in gold and chocolate! :)

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Glad to hear that you are back to writing and feeling productive. I couldn't write before I left for this vacation (that's ending today), because I wasn't "feeling" the story. Now I feel rejuvenated, plus I did some research related to background on my story, and I think when I get home, I'll be able to write.

Hope you and your family are safe and well in this troubled time.

Facebook is my main distraction from working on my novel. It's too addicting.
Have a nice weekend, Lexa.
Please stay safe.

Hey Lexa,

Anagram alert! WIP it good! :) Well done, Lexa. And this 'Farcebook', everyone's favourite social 'notworking' site is keeping you entertained. You know what this means? Yay, I share your posting on Farcebook!

A hopeful rest of the weekend to you.

Gary :)

Mina Lobo said...

Yeah, if that demon cat doesn't keep you on the writerly straight and narrow, I dunno what would. :-)

You have to watch those cats. It's the eyes, I think. Oh, and the sharp claws too.

Good luck with your WIP. I'm averaging maybe 300 words a day. :) Slow as a three-toed sloth.
