Randomness

It's Friday. I'm tired. It's been a long week. The good news is, I've written 6000 new words on my WIP in the past four days. Because I'm a ninja. That's why. ;) I'm determined to finish this book by the end of March. I'm loving it so far. My MC is going through some tough stuff and is very emotional. It's a good thing she has my favorite love interest EVER on her side. (I heart you Trey!)
Anyhoo, I think I'll wind down this week by taking the kiddos to the library. I love going to the library. My kids love it, and that makes me happy knowing I'm teaching them to like books and reading. :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Anyone have any exciting plans? I don't have any, other than spending time with my cute kids and hubby. I love those weekends. I'm just going to relax, hopefully get some more writing done, and I'm going to read Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting. I loved The Bodyfinder. Anyone have a good book to share this week? Any I must read? If so, please share. I'll see you next week! :)

You ARE a ninja. That's a lot of words. I'm probably taking my kiddos to the library today too. It's our favorite place to go.

Have a great weekend. See you on the other side of it. ;)

Those are a lot of words! Good for you on writing so much! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Devin Bond said...

Wow, congrats on the word count! Definitely ninja like! Yay for also having an awesome love interest~

Melissa said...

GO NINJA! 6000 is AWESOME. You are rocking it! I'm going out for gelato and a movie tonight - super excited! Then it's back to my mountainous piles of homework!

Charity Bradford said...

Woot! Great job, I hope you have a great weekend too. No plans here, but that's actually a relief.

Kasie West said...

Oooh, I have Desires of the Dead in my TBR pile. I also loved The Body Finder. :) I have a pretty low key weekend as well. And I think I'll follow your lead and take my son to the library today. It's been too long.

I seriously need to rearrange my weeks. All the stuff I don't want to do has somehow slipped onto Saturday, chores, groceries, blech. I need my Saturdays to be free days, darnitall! At least I have a date with my honey tomorrow night ~ that's definitely a good thing! And my man and I just got called to be team teachers in Primary! On Sunday we'll be set apart, and I can't wait to get started. :)

Congrats on all your hard work Chantele! You're gonna kick this draft!

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Myrna- Thank you! And my kids had a great time at the library! :)

Candice- Sometimes I don't want to be on the other side of it! lol

Golden Eagle- Thanks so much! I'm trying! :)

Devin- I do love a good love interest. This one is the best I've ever written!

Melissa- I hope you had fun at your movie! I've never tried gelato... I may have to.

Charity- Thanks! :D

Kasie- I have yet to start Desires of the Dead... We'll see if I can actually read something this weekend! :)

@ali
I love dates with my honey. I don't get them very often, but when we actually find a babysitter it's so nice! How fun being a Primary teacher with your hubby too! I'm in YW, and my husband is the choir director! (We both almost fell off our chairs when he got called to that! He's not the singer of the family, I am! LOL)

Jennifer Hillier said...

6000 new words?! That definitely qualifies you for ninja status!

It was a long week and I'm tired, too. A nap is sounding pretty good right about now...

Melanie Jacobson said...

Yep. Those are some serious ninja skills.

Chaleese said...

My sister is definitely the coolest!! :)Go Chan!

Susan Fields said...

I'm reading Desires of the Dead, too! I finished Body Finder last week and immediately started in on Desires. I hope you're having a great weekend!

Wow, seems like your ninja skills are too cool! Hope you had fun at the library! My MC doesn't like the character I think is beyond belief hot, she rather deem him the "antagonist". Stubborn. ;)

By the way, I've got two awards for you on my blog!

Take one, take both - whatever, they're all yours. :D
