A Word In My Defense

I just want it on-record that though I've been lagging on page count, it hasn't been purely all procrastination. The past week-ish has actually been pretty busy for me. I picked up an extra night at the bar (aka more research for the novel), currently have out-of-town relatives visiting, and had various other activities, including:

Getting ready for and attending my dad's retirement party (no birthday was involved whatsoever, the decorator was just delusional).

Going up to the mountains with dad over the weekend.

Tackling some cleaning around the house and especially in my office, where I've been depositing my horde of binders (note the big box) and gradually running out of storage space and thus resorting to use of the floor. (Dog included for scale)

I've also been refining my new polymer bead style and adding additional, and even more labor-intensive steps to how I make them. Now, along with all the other steps, I'm sanding too.

So, no, I haven't been keeping up with my 2+ pages a day writing goal, but it's not like I've been an absolute slacker, either.

Sounds like a bunch of excuses to me.

Sounds reasonable to me. But, then again, I'm almost caught up.

I love the dog being used for scale.

D.B. what's your page count at the moment? Yeah, that's right. :p

See? Deb gets it.
