Hey there! So it's actually Monday, and I'm both remembering to tell you you're awesome, AND I have time to tell you how awesome you are!

I have today off and am feeling very awesome! It's pushing 8 o'clock, it's 70 degrees out, I'm on my patio in my pajamas drinking my second cup of coffee! THERE WILL BE WORDS MADE TODAY. Hopefully before the temp hit's it's predicted 91, but words either way!

So how have you all been? The pool party was a huge success! The weekend challenge went well. August Rush has started. The words of the day are just waiting to inspire you! All the things are good! And then, WE HAVE OVER 8 MILLION WORDS! That just takes my breath away. Seriously!

All-righty then, I'm off to open up a google doc and start writing up some fic! How are you all going to make this week awesome?

My only real goal this week is to survive the local wild fire...that at last check is up to 46,000 acres. While I believe my house is a safe distance from it, the shifting winds have pushed it all over the place, making things super stressful. I want to write, but I'm so focused on keeping up to date on where the fire is at that it takes everything else away :/

D: stay safe! Don't worry about writing, I think the characters understand you can't pay them as much attention right now!

Yay for days off! Although... it was already 87 when I left the house at 6:45 this morning. :D GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR WRITING!

I'm going to make this week awesome by not murdering any of my co-workers. :D

Sounds like a plan! ;-)

Not going to jail for murder does sound like an awesome week! :P

Saw Mission Impossible on Sunday, going to see Fantastic four tonight, and I got approval to leave at 4 on mondays so I can join a stitch and bitch!

Boo to the temps, for you anyway, we're have a lovely week oddly enough. :P

Florida may wash away. I WOULD SEND ALL THIS $&@($)@ RAIN TO agdhani IF I COULD.
Aug. 3rd, 2015 04:42 pm (UTC)
we would take it...at least a lot of it (not too much at once though...don't want the charred land to wash away ;) ) Hope you dry out soon!

I'm trying to exceed my Big Buddy 20% this week :D gotta stay on top of all these crazy fic exchanges (why do I even have four of them due this month on top of a big bang and a land comm WHY did I do this). This would make the week awesome!

Current count for August: 6,939 words ^o^

I've got 140,572 posted words so far this year, so if I manage an average of 2k a day this month I'll be at 200k at the end of August (though of course the big bang is only posted in November but it's the fact that it's written that counts right ^o^)

OMG! You are completely awesome with words! I bet you're wondering why you're such a glutton for punishment about now though! Good luck with everything; I know you can do it! ;-)

I had it in mind to do one new thing a day in August - and then saw that Clarahow had posted just that sort of thing from July. Great comms draw great minds that think alike, lol.

So I am aiming to do that - some of it fandom related and some not. Yesterday's new thing was very far from earth shattering: I bought a citrus juicer, hand-twisty thing for getting all the juice out of fruit and I made homemade lemonade. I learned it takes a crapload of lemons to make lemonade, lol... but it was good.

I made my daily challenge, which feels great. And I have hope of the words flowing better this week - feels like they are.

Homemade juices always taste the best! :D though it takes me 8 oranges to get 2 mugs full D:

Good luck with your goal!
Aug. 4th, 2015 10:29 am (UTC)
Great challenge to set yourself, and how funny is that about the great minds! We draw them all, here!

Those words will flow; just like the lemonade! I have faith! ;-)
Aug. 7th, 2015 04:07 pm (UTC)
I love it all!!!!

Lookit you go with the new and the juice and the words! YOU ARE SO VERY VERY AWESOME!

Well, I have managed to get two posts up for August Rush already, so that's definitely something! As long as I get the rest of my week's posts up, we'll be good!

Work, I need to get 4 reviews done in 3 days, so we'll see how that goes (I'll live with 3, but there are no guarantees).

Writing: perhaps I could actually write SOMETHING, although maybe if I just focus on the final edit for the big WIP that I finished in June, and actually post it so the 23K words goes into the August count for 1MW, I'll call it even!
Aug. 7th, 2015 04:24 pm (UTC)
I know it's all over now, but fingers crossed that you got it all done and can spend this weekend editing!!!
