Baby Steps

I actually reached 5000 words on my current project this week. It had been sitting at around 4600 for months (since March if you really want to know). So yeah, 400 words aren’t all that much, but for someone who has been struggling to write this book, it’s AWESOME. I finally got past that scene that has stymied me and am into the next chapter.

I expect this book will be like my others and eventually take over my life. It’ll just take baby steps. And I took 400 of those baby steps this week. That’s progress, and I’ll take it!

Tomorrow my dearest friend is getting married (she’s the one who loves to cook!). I’m so glad she found someone who makes her happy. She deserves it.

And to have some “bridal” fun, I found this on Youtube. Anyone remember “Here Come the Brides”? I was a HUGE Bobby Sherman fan. J

Happy Friday!

Good for you and Mozel Tov to your friend. I hope it's a long and happy marriage.

It was corny but I loved Here Come the Brides. I was more for older brothers back then. :)

Maria - I was 11 when that show came out. Bobby Sherman WAS older! Haha! :)

Congratulations on your baby steps--"just" a few hundred words, but they may well break the dam. Enjoy the wedding!

Jeff - "Break the dam." I sure hope so!! I've already got the next scene playing in my head, but won't be able to write it, because, you know, WEDDING! Haha! Made some notes though. Yay!

400 words is nothing to sneeze at, so you go girl. Hope you had fun at the wedding. And I LOVED Bobby Sherman! Right along with Davy Jones, David Cassidy, and Donny Osmond. Who didn't back then?

Anne - I think I had posters of them all on my walls.
