Happy St Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing green today?

I’m not at all Irish. Italian and German here. Still wearing green though. One must get into the spirit of things, ya know. Even Biker Dude went to work decked out in green today, and he’s not Irish either. :giggle:

So last week was busy. I had an appointment of some sort or another every single day last week. For some reason that really cuts into my writing mojo. I like to get up in the morning, sit at my desk and get to work. Anything that makes me stop screws with my writing flow. Urgh. But I still managed 12,000 words last week. I wanted to get 15,000. I blame all those appointments.

At least the word count is on track. I want to finish this book by the end of the month. We’ll see how I do. This weekend I wrote myself into a plot corner again and spent a lot of time staring at the words on the page, trying to figure out how to get two characters in the same geographical place who weren’t in the same place at the moment, and a plotline that required them to stay in different places. Oy. I think I have it figured out and I’m moving on. (I’ve found that staring at the page really gets you nowhere. You have to keep writing. You can fix it later)

Tonight the Writeminded gals are chatting at Writerspace at 9 p.m. Eastern. Come visit with me, Steph Tyler, Larissa Ione, Amy Knupp and Maya Banks and talk about…well, we tend to talk just about anything :giggle:

Anyone have fun plans for St Patrick’s Day? Hitting an Irish pub? Making corned beef and cabbage? I’ve never made it, but I love to eat it. We’re out of food here and I haven’t been to the grocery store yet so it might be peanut butter and jelly sandwiches tonight. Um, Irish Jelly. Heh.
