I am so not good at this time-management thing  
But then, y'all already knew that.

Trying to get my head into this reading for class. It's semi-working... I'm up to page 6! The book is pretty boring so far... *sighs*

Meanwhile, last week I ordered a bed-base! I am very excited. It's supposed to be arriving sometime this coming week. *bounces impatiently* I has just had a mattress on the floor for over a year now, so it's a big deal for Peeji.

What else is going on? Well, the drafts of chapters 8 and 9 for DMTs are done, I wrote one sentence of chapter 10 tonight. Really not going to be a lot going on with that till after this assignment is in on the 1st. Then I have this NUTZO weekend of work, but I'm hoping around Monday/tuesday after I'll give this writing thing another whirl. If I don't hit my 20,000 goal (which isn't terribly likely at this point) by August 9th then I plan to put my idea on temporary hold, get chapter 7 all typed and edited (so the readers don't die of impatience... again.) and up, and then either keep going for another few weeks or shift to BtS. I've been really encouraged by how much work I've done for this over the last few weeks, so I'd like to try again when there isn't Unexpected Assignment Insanity.

Anyway, for people's reference:

At this point, the novelty has totally worn off...  
Edited to add: AHAHAHA! THE NOVELTY. Ahahahahaaaa that was totally unintentional! (Yes, yes, I am one of those people who cracks up over stupid puns. Please blame my parents.)

But, I'm still keeping up okay! By week end I needed 4,522 minimum:

Day Six – July 14th, 2008 [Words: 0 today / 3,672 total] )


Day Seven – July 15th, 2008 [Words: 1,230 today / 4,905 total] )

Also caught up with my brothers today, which was nice, and the presents I got for my parents FINALLY got to them and Mum called to squee about going to the ballet with me. And she loved the card. Dad said, 'thanks for the bit of wood with a hole in it' which was okay, since that's what I gave him. (it was a stupid gift. A wine-bottle balancing holder thing. :/) So I'm feeling all family-ified and that is nice.
