This weekend was amazing!
SATURDAY My dear hubby took the family (new puppy included) for an all day visit to the grandparents house. I became one with my computer chair* and pulled off 5500 words.
*Well, to be fair I did stop to watch a movie–but hey, at least I cleaned up the house during the commercials AND at least it was a movie about writing a novel. It was called Alex and Emma, starring Luke Wilson and Goldie Hawn’s daughter (can’t quite remember her name–Kate Hudson I think?).*
SUNDAY. I immediately noticed a difference in my word count an hour into working. On Saturday, I’d polished over 2000 words by 10:00am. Sunday, I was at maybe 150 by the same time due to a bunch of silly interuptions. Grrrr.
This is the moment I finally figured out that since my four-year olds (and dear hubby) can read, why don’t I post a note on the door?
So I did, and it worked. For any of you wondering exactly what brilliant words I strung together, I have included my words of wisdom below.
So, the sign (and the threat of “You’re in big trouble if you open the door”) stayed in place all day and I managed to pull off another 3000 words.
Of course, this entire weekend’s success is partially due to my dear hubby, who held down the fort while I was working.
I may make my deadline yet!
PS. Happy Monday–Castle is on tonight!
