Alive. Writing!

Just a quick hello - Today I have been WRITING!!!!  OMG YAY!!!!! Lol.  My life is so crazy, it's like a miracle.  My latest adventure began last night when my dog threw her back out in the middle of the night and today ended up on doggy morphine.  She's hurting, but she will be ok.  She is the sweetest old Chow Chow.  A total lovebug.  So anyway.  I added a ticker for my new WiP on the side there... thought that might inspire me to at least write something every day throughout the summer.  Today I had a good, long, quiet writing time, which I may get once or twice a week this summer - managed to add 1102 words (yay!) so I almost doubled my initial word count.  Lol.  It looks sad, but 4% is better than 2% and every little bit helps.  I'm very excited about this new fantasy/fairy tale!  It's a new genre for me and I am loving it!

BTW - Don't forget to sign up for WriteOnCon, the free writer's conference hosted by some of our bloggy besties if you haven't already!!!

I'm really debating about WriteOnCon... I have to see what my schedule looks like for that period. August is a full month for me... or is it in July. Hm. Guess I need to go look again. Anyhoo... Glad to see you back! And writing! (one of us should be ;)

My dog has the same problem! Poor puppies. :(
And I'm always curious about word tickers. How do you know when you start a novel how many words it'll be? Are you just guessing, or do you have it planned out? Is it a ballpark figure, or a definite line that you can't cross? I'm too unorganized to do stuff like that. :D

It's great to *see* you again. Hope the summer is being kind otherwise. Congrats on the writing. Sorry about the pup. I'm glad she's going to be ok.

Bethany - It is a total guess for me based on the fact that most YA is 45K to 80K, so I figured 50K is good to shoot for. I really have no idea!
