MOMMY IS WORKING…

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.

MOMMY

IS

WORKING.

DO  NOT

COME

INSIDE.

 

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!

  1. That’s awesome, it’s funny how something as innocuous as a word count can become so daunting at times.

    So, what kind of puppy did you guys finally decide on?

    Happy Monday, keep on truckin’…

  2. A Border Collie. We adopted him from a Border Collie rescue shelter that operates in the Pacific Northwest. I’ll do a post on him soon, complete with pictures 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the great word counts (and the new puppy). A thoughtful husband is a blessing and it sounds like the rest of the family, with a little threatening, were pretty considerate, too. 🙂

    • Meghan, Carol, and Charlotte,

      All my work was thanks to my dear hubby…who has promised to guest host this blog for tomorrow.
      Should be interesting since I have no idea what’s he’s written (or if anything) so far.
