Celebrate the Small Things 17-7-15

This post is part of  Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things (Lexa has just taken it over from VikLit who has hosted it for the last 2 years). Head on over there to join up! 

So, what am I celebrating this week?

I have managed to get some writing done.  Not as much as I might have liked, but some.  I'm at just under 14K for the month which is behind where I want to be, but I hope to get another chunk written over the weekend.  The book is sitting around the 42K mark, which is probably close to 2/3 of the way done.  I even mapped out an ending the other day.  So I just need to get there now.

I had the day off work today to spend with the kids since it's the last day of their vacation. I wound up with my two plus a friend for each and took them to the water slides.  Everyone had fun and I didn't lose any kids (permanently  - there were a few periods I couldn't find one or two of them).  I enjoyed it, but I have a really big event at work on Monday and can't help worrying about that when I'm not there.  I hope I don't show up on Monday to discover a huge pile of crap I have to clean up.

Lots of housework and stuff to do over the weekend because the film festival starts on Thursday and once that hits, everything else goes on the back burner until it's over.

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. Busy, busy! The water slides sound like fun - although I thought it was winter in NZ now. Glad all kids were accounted for ... eventually. LOL! 42k is great! Keep it up, and good luck with the Monday work load. :)

  2. Enjoy life, enjoy your kids, it goes by too fast! And congrats on making progress with your writing!

  3. Having an ending worked out is a huge thing. I have more of a vague concept with which to work, but no illusions that the story will actually work out that way.

    I'll be taking my niece to the water slides when she comes for a visit next month. I haven't been in ages.

  4. You sure have a lot on your plate right now. But I think it's good you took a day off to be with your kids.

    I'm celebrating a new interview at Rachna's Scriptorium about my book

  5. Celebrating achievements with friends, have a great weekend!

  6. Congrats on getting some writing done! Have a great weekend :)

  7. You have a plan. That's good :). And good luck with the upcoming film festival.

  8. 14k is great. Even if it's less than you planned on, it's a good chunk of writing done. :-)
