I thought I would report my current word count: 34,752.
I lost my focus on Friday when I realized I would be leaving in a week for my dream trip to Hawaii. When I sit down to write, I am derailed with thoughts like: "I wonder if I should bring my dad's binoculars along. Yes, because the whales will be migrating." How can I write with all these thoughts? I will resume when I return...
Ok, let's face it, I will most likely resume after the holidays are over. Even though I have finished all of my holiday gifts and decorations, I somehow end up unable to focus due to the frantic holiday pace of the world. Frankly, I will be glad when it's over!
PS: I just found out that it happens to be the birthday of Tom Waits today! He's 65. I wish I could bake him a cake. I only live about 4 hours from him. Oh well...Happy Birthday dear Tom!
