Monday Mayhem – Kicking names and taking…

I have to tell you, I had a killer awesome weekend writing-wise. I started a new project called Play Dates. Yes, I know, you wanted Hooligans next, but trust me when I tell you that there’s a whole bunch of convoluted reasoning behind the switch in schedule. Anyhoo, I started Play Dates this week, but didn’t have a lot of time to get words in. So, I scheduled some play dates of my own.

First, I hooked up with my pal, Parker Kincaid, for pastries and pantsing at Panera. No, that doesn’t mean we pulled each other’s drawers off. It mean we both write by the seat of our pants. Fueled by bagels, danish, and toffee-nut cookies, we managed to put up some respectable numbers in the old word count column.

But then on Sunday, I took part in this:

As I type this, we are in the dinner/break portion of the day, and I am proud to report that I have over 4k for the day!

Between sessions, I did a little stint on the elliptical (part of the Body by Gilmore Girls program-I’m on ep 3), threw together some crock pot salsa chicken with black beans, ran to the store, and frolicked outside with the puppies.

I hope to get at least another 1000-1500 words this evening, and round out chapter 2. Jewels has totally kicked butt too. We’ve decided that we like having more defined writing times. Eyes on the prize and all that.

How was your weekend? Hit any goals? Take any naps? Share! I like to live vicariously. πŸ˜‰

Oh! And starting this week, I’ll have a new feature on my blog – Teaser Tuesdays. These will give me a chance to introduce you to some of my writer friends and their latest projects.

That means this joint is jumping at least 5 days a week. Remember to stop by for all the fun:

  1. Wooohooo! Don’t you feel awesome when you wake up Monday morning with a huge smile on your face because you freaking kicked ass all weekend? I do! πŸ˜€ So excited for you and Play Dates! Hope the words continue to pour out!

    This blog is quickly becoming my favourite hangout. More posts = happier me! πŸ™‚

  2. As far as goals I pretty much had a relaxing weekend. I did manage some errands and chores. I am attempting to get back on the horse exercise and diet wise. Put on more than a few pounds since my trip in February. Managed to bike or do some other kind of exercise this weekend. Hopefully the pounds will drop again.
    Great job on the writing this weekend. You writing makes me a happy girl because that
    means there is future stories ahead.

  3. You guys are crazy but I’m glad it works for you! Congrats on racking up the words. You know I’ll read whatever you put out there, so Play Dates sounds good to me!
    Got out of town on Saturday, so that was fun. Weather was delightful and it was so nice not to have on a heavy coat. Ate too much and spent too much money! Kids were test-driving a car and stopped by to get the Dad seal of approval on it. Sunday was groceries and some old West Wing episodes on Netflix. (And I wrote a decent amount too, but not on your level!) So a good weekend all around.
