As of today, I officially beat my January goal for getyourwordsout
! I have written 17,108 words so far, vs. a goal of 16,986 words! Yippee! This challenge has been absolutely fantastic and I have really stuck to the daily writing I pledged to do in 2009.
The novel (In The Spotlight) is really coming along, and it's changing from what my original thought and plan was, which is rather interesting. I may post a poll in the next day or so asking for some help naming a couple of things--namely album titles and helping choose hometowns. I think I know where I want everyone to be from, but I might toss it out there for debate of sorts. I love my characters and I really love where the plot seems to be going--even if it is a completely different direction than what I was thinking and/or planning.
Reasons Why is also coming along. I am in the middle of a Hiatus Pt 1 and 2 fic, but I need to go back and watch those eps to get everything relatively correct. I finished a Gibbs and Hannah fic a couple of weeks ago and liked how it turned out. I also am working on a Tony and Hannah's mom Emily fic. There's a couple of lines in that one that are so--Tony. I am beyond in love with writing this AU series.
Work is great. As I keep saying, I love my co-workers and this company and everything it stands for. I feel very valued and part of the team, and I am surrounded by fun, positive people. The customers are fantastic, and I know a lot of them from my former workplace. They are always surprised to see me and are glad to see me too. I'm just so content with things right now. I get to meet out DD (district director) for the first time face-to-face on Friday, and I am really looking forward to that.
Have the next two days off, and I plan to sleep in. I've been working very late nights the past three days and feel like a truck hit me. It's floorset time and we're frantically trying to make the store look its best! But now I can sleep. Heh. Will probably hang out with the mom a bit and stay at the house, but I'm not sure.
Off to either attempt being productive or to go to bed. Most likely trying to be productive. I'd like to get some more words in over the next couple of days to give me a cushion to start February! Either way, I hit my goal four full days before the end of the month! Yay!
