Whoo, been looking at the last time I gave a writing update on … er, anything really. Just a little over a month. Yeah … last month has been hectic. After my daughter got her teeth out, she ended up having a reaction to some sunscreen.
Yes, sunscreen. Kids sunscreen. Just what was put on her face, thankfully. Apparently it’s common with that brand. (Seriously, that was the expression I pulled when I heard.) But some medicine, a few non-sunscreen but still sun-smart days and it was clearing up.
Note the use of ‘was’.
Last Saturday, while I was at a cat show, she went to her school’s fair with daddy dearest and, on top of getting soaked … got her face painted. *face palm* I’m not sure who I want to slap the most, her father for letting her get her face painted, or the people who did the painting because she still had obvious signs of a receding rash on her face.
It was an interesting pattern though. All dots and swirls from where the blue/purple was. Must’ve had a certain artificial, blue food colouring in the paint. -_-
Anyway, to find that Dark One’s Mistress has hit 50,000 words makes me feel extra productive. ^_^
And it’s not done yet. I’ve another 20k and seven more chapters to go before the end (basically the fun parts where my characters go through hell while I sit and giggle like some insane evil genius). Heh, at this rate, I might have it finished before my birthday in February.
No, let’s see if December can see me announcing the completion of yet another novel’s first draft. Hmm?
|I’m sexy, and I know it. ^_^|
Oh, and for those who were wondering, FizzyWhip, my sweet black and white sop of a cat got his mummy one first, three seconds and two fourths at the show. That adds up to some expensive catfood and a few ribbons.
Let’s hear it for the rescue cats! ^_^
