Word Count and Wizards

Ok, so I want to jump on the HP post bandwagon and I'm not seeing DH until next Tuesday. I'm counting the minutes, but I don't want it to end either. We've had the audio Jim Dale versions playing in the house for months.

On a related note (ok, so not at all related), I've written almost 3000 words on my new WIP this week. And those in only two days of writing. For whatever reason this WIP feels like it's going somewhere. And I even know what scene I need to write next. I haven't written new fiction in a LONG time, so this feels really good.

This weekend, my daughter and I are camping with the Girl Scouts. It'll be fun, and sweaty, and hopefully NOT full of mosquitoes. I've got the netting just in case. But, YUM, s'mores.

I'll be bringing a notebook to jot down any brilliant ideas I get while we're there.

Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories.

Kris--that's an awesome wordcount--you should enter it into the Tour de Writing--you'd be absolutely in the running! (I'm doing the standings today at some point.)

And, I think it's SO FUNNY that you connected with my neighbor at the girl scout thing. What a small world!
