Day 7, 10:30 pm

I have reached the pathetic total of 9,460 words.  But I've gotten past the really difficult "exposition conversation" scene I have been dreading.  I cut out some foreshadowing that might be a little too much information.  Now just one more new scene to write and I can go back to cutting and pasting.

I am excited, however, because the stars seem to have aligned in such a way as to give me some alone time next week!  Yay!  Perhaps I can actually get some work done.  I doubt I'll have a complete draft in time to visit my grandmother, but I also doubt she'll like this particular story anyway.  It's not her genre. So that's okay.

In other news, Wen at On Words and Upwards is having a contest. It involves pineapple lumps.  I am addicted to pineapple lumps.  So, I'm in. You have been duly notified.

PS I just found out that Pineapple Lumps in New Zealand are not what I thought they were (sweetened pineapple bits.)  They are even better! Chocolate covered pineapple chews.  Now I MUST have them!


  1. Congrats on getting past the really difficult part. And yay! for alone time and pineapple chews. :)

  2. I've never tried Pineapple Lumps and I'm a little scared. What are they?


I apologize for the word verification. I hate it, but the spammers made me do it.
