It's Monday again!

So - I missed Big buddy, again. All I can ask is DID YOU MAKE YOUR 60%??? Let me hear it!!!

And then, my dog smells like a barn. Not like a nice clean fresh hay barn, like a muggy max capacity hasn't been cleaned in a week barn. He goes out to the yard, runs around, get overheated, jumps in the dog pool, sprawls and rolls, then out and run through the dirt, jumps muddy into the dog pool, out and run, in with mud, out, in, out... BARN SMELL! Should I get the opportunity to experience another life, I want to be a loved dog! Where people love me because I don't pee in the house. But in this life, my awesome plan this week is to groom the dog and stay out of the heat as much as possible! Then maybe some words.

Then definitely some words!

So what awesome things are you up to? Big plans on the dog cleaning front? ;) That could be just me. But either way, I wanna know!

Happy Monday to you all!

I think I'm supposed to be at 14K or so, not sure, but I'm not worried about it as I only count the words of works I finish.
Jul. 20th, 2015 05:31 pm (UTC)
It's 10k more than you were at! It's awesome!
Jul. 20th, 2015 05:39 pm (UTC)
:puzzled: No, it's my total for the month. I think I was 8Kish last check-in. But again, not sure. I usually compare my current total to the listed target total in the post.

O? OMG!! That is awesome!!!!!

YAY YOU!!! And *fingers crossed* I can manhandle him into it!

Here have a wolf :D

Well, I hope to upload something ~1k+ words today... that brings my total to just over 20k... when my goal is 30k...


At least I finally got past that angst scene I was stuck on for the last three weeks. And my Big Bang is now at 12k instead of 10k (out of a projected 25k, though, sadly).

On the bright side, I'm finally getting new glasses so maybe it'll hurt less to look at the computer screen from next week onwards.

I'm nearly at 35k...should reach that by the end of the day if I can write another paragraph or two ;)
I'm ahead of where I expected to be this month, and a day ahead of needed word count for campnano...so so far its going well. I don't know if I'll reach the end of the book by 50k or not...or if I'll finish the book and fall short of 50k...but it'll be close either way.

Writing-wise, my first goal is to get all rewards written/made from the Weekend Challenge, which went quite swimmingly! Awesome turnout for the dog days of summer, I'd say (sticking with the dog theme, and working in a Pool Party reference as well, lol).

And speaking of which, next goal is to get my Pool Party graphics made. Also want to finish up one long-running WIP, and write the next chapter on another.

And... last but not least, I want to write a bit more on the original fic - am going to attend 'shut up and write' on Wed. again. :).

Yikes, I think that's enough!

I did make my words.

My plans for the week are to hide from the heat. I received a notice warning of our heat index reaching between 105-109 every day this week... and next week will be hotter... because they are predicting triple digit weather.

If I melt, pour my goop over a laptop and stick me in a library.

Gotta love that musty puppy smell, eh? But ugh... I know exactly what you mean. But you love 'em all the same because they don't know any better. :D

Big cleaning plans are forever on the horizon, just not of the dog variety. I was going to rake the back yard on Saturday but once the 25 MPH winds kicked up, followed by monsoon rain, I figured it could wait until next weekend. :D And my cat must've stopped shedding since he wasn't matted from here to next week this morning. (He's a Maine Coon so he has this thick, rough outer fur with a very fine under fur that gets all knotted and he's a lazy ass so he doesn't groom himself like he should.)

I did manage a little over 600 words this morning! Yay!
Jul. 21st, 2015 05:23 am (UTC)
Yay! :D
Jul. 21st, 2015 05:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D
Jul. 20th, 2015 08:52 pm (UTC)
Oh, I don't even know, but I've only written about 200 words lately so probably nowhere near where I'm supposed to be. And I don't even have the heat as an excuse. *sigh* It's just not happening lately, but I have made 3 birthday banners so I don't feel too bad. (all of which my daughter described as 'tacky' so thank you, N2D!)

My plans for this week are to make it to Friday. That's about as good as I can manage. Might watch more Sense8 now we have Netflix, and I need to catch up on The Following and Aquarius episodes that I missed last week, and that sounds ambitious enough considering the hubby is determined to make me watch Breaking Bad, which we watched the first episode of last night, and I have nothing against it but I am distinctly indifferent to continuing in my current mood (I blame hormones).

RL? I can't even be bothered, but I am thankful it doesn't include bathing dogs! *hugs to Eggs* when he's clean again!

My output slowed down a LOT with the end of my staycation, but I'm currently at 20563 so I'm still ahead of the game!

Best of luck with the dog grooming! That sounds like one happy pup. :)

Dog woes... I have two dogs so I certainly know what that's like!
I think I'm right on track with my word count and I'm hoping to start posting a multi chapter WIP this week which will guarantee I make my count for the month! That's my short term goal. My long term goal is to finish up the year as strong as I started it! :D

Happy belated Monday (I'm late because it's Tuesday) - after a work filled weekend I've reached a day off in which no doubt procrastination will reign throughout as I put off doing particular chores. I'm going for my first tattoo this week so YAY - after a long time of deliberating and deciding (and we're talking years) I figured why am I still waiting when it's obviously what I want to do.

As for fic - I felt very productive last week! Managed a weekend challenge and a torrid entry as well as continuing work on a couple of WIP's. We're pst halfway through the year and I'm in a much better place writing-wise than I was a year ago which I'm very thankful about.

Oh and that sounds like a very happy dog living a very happy doggy life. My dog wouldn't thank your for a dog pool because she doesn't like water (hates walks in the rain, loves the beach but not the ocean). She is due a new bath so I'll be with you in spirit on the dog cleaning front - if I can coax her from under the table when she figures it's bathtime that is.
