More 5 Minute Sessions

I’ve been doing the 5 minute sessions (sprints really) again tonight, trying to reach the ever elusive 200 words in 5 minutes goal I’d like to reach. You know, someday. Maybe before I die. Since we all know that could happen at any time, for any strange reason, I’d like to reach that goal sooner rather than later. :)

Not that I don’t have other, bigger, more pressing, life goals I’d like to meet before I die, but hey, one at a time, you know?

So far I’ve done 8 sprints and the highest I’ve gotten is 130 and that was my very first one. The rest have been lackluster, even though I swear my fingers are moving faster than they were last night. I can only assume I’m deleting too much tonight. Ah! The bane of my writing habits. I’m a heavy deleter.

Again, I really wish I’d gotten started with this early today. Hmm.

I think I’m going to go try to get to sleep earlier tonight so I can maybe, hopefully, please God, get to work early enough to reach a really nice word count tomorrow.


Yep. I’m calling it a night.

Read Another Book—10 of 60

And it’s been four days since I finished reading the last book, but … I read another book this week! MacRieve by Kresley Cole.

MacRieve - Kresley Cole

It’s book 13 in a long-running series called Immortals After Dark. I think I’ve missed a couple of books. I know I have 2 paperbacks I haven’t read that come before this one, but I think there are more. Ah well. It didn’t interfere with my enjoyment of this one, and I’ll get to them sometime, I’m sure.

I dumped the mini habit of reading 2 pages a day. Strangely enough, though, I have still read at least 2 pages of fiction a day since! I probably won’t tomorrow though, since I just finished this next book and I don’t really want to start another one yet. We’ll see. Maybe Friday. :)

NOTE: I decided to make an effort to read more books this year. And since I have so many unread books, I set a goal to read at least 60 of the books in my backlog by the end of the year. Here’s the log if you want to see how I’m doing.
