A Little Progress.
I didn't expect to get much done yesterday, seeing as it was a "short day" that I had to take Rowan to therapy, and I was operating on little sleep. To pep myself up, I tried one of those little bottles of "5 hour energy boost" drinks they sell near the check out line at Walmart. I actually got into a little creative spell and made some nice contributions to my story on a little scratch pad while waiting for Rowan in the waiting room.
Rowan is doing well, and all her teachers agree she is a bright little girl who would be doing even better if she weren't such a stinker. I don't know what to do about that.
Today I'm hoping to get some work done on Part III: The Ghost of Candlewalk Lane. After a read through yesterday, I agree it's the best of the three, but it can still use some improvement I need to tone down a few paragraphs where in my "writing infancy" I got a little "over prosey". Overall, I think I'm going to be pleased with the way this turns out.
Our weekly housekeeper visited yesterday, which means you can actually walk around in here for the next twenty four hours. I'll enjoy that while it lasts, too.
Oh, and apparently my scales were a little wonky because it turns out I have lost seven pounds. I thought my pants were fitting looser, but had decided it must be my imagination. So project, "Low Carbs for Great Justice" is so far a success.
Just all kinds of good news this morning.
