A productive day off

I finally finished it! The funky sweater is done, not bad if I do say so myself. *G*
I didn't alter the original pattern all that much. I added an inch and a half to the bottom, made the sleeves a big longer and changed the pattering on the arms. I love this lattice pattern. It's supa easy, and looks very medieval to me.

Hubby called dibs on my next project. He wants a Pittsburgh Steelers touque. Easy enough, I'm sure I still have the graph I made of the logo somewhere. I might even make myself a matching one, of course I'll put #43 on it somwhere in honour of Polamolu *BG*

I managed to get a good number of words on my NaNo done as well. I've got a GirlGuides meeting tonight so my goal is to get another 2 thousand done tonight after I get the girls to bed. That will put me closer to the 10G mark and I won't be freaking so much. I know I have lots of time but this month goes by really fast. Also the weekend after next I am goign away with Hubby for our anniversary. I don't think I'll be getting much writing done. I'm going to try to sneak the laptop into the suitcase. He'll need to sleep at somepoint LOL

I've also been doing a lot of research on writing. One of my goals for this year is to have both stories finished and submission ready (if not submitted already) and the third in rewrites by the end of October'07. I still have a lot of planning to do and rewriting. Morgan Hawke's blog is an incredible source of information. I've also been reading A Hero with a Thousand Faces and The Writer's Journey. I figure if I am going to pitch BIS as the first of a triliogy then it would be the best if I could hand over all three stories to a publisher at once.

hmmm you know I should squeeze in some Laundry time somewhere.....

You know I was enjoying the blog and there you go throwing in that L word!

The sweater is gorgeous! have fun with the Steeler one but only if it cuts into the L time and not the writing! You know Giants are much easier.

umm can i add the words i have written on Lukewarm Psychic to my NaNo count? Sigh LOL I think i picked the wrong year to join.

enjoy that anniversary you never know where inspiration may come from Wink wink nudge nudge *g*

may the muses find material to enlighted and excuses not to do the L thing

Let me apologise right now for my lack of consideration by useing such a foul word.

Don't feel bad my NaNo count is terrible to say the least. I might have to up my daily word count to 2500 in order to make it. Where I'm going to find time I have no idea. LOL I won't be wasting any time on dirty clothes that's for sure.

Pretty sweater! I wish I could make things.

*Grin* We're Colts fans here.

.^5 on your word counts!

I've once again signed up for Nano, but have forgotten about it. I just don't have the time to log in there. Next year I'll try harder.

Happy Anniversary!


PS; I know why the "L" word frightens Mo so much. ;) I have the same monster here. I plan to tackle it this weekend. I'm worried it may become a fire hazard, and the dh wouldn't let me buy no new shoes this weekend. He's always so mean...

that would be socks, not shoes. *sigh* blasted typos. ;)
