The 47th day of Isobel
Sunday, January 28, 2007
My darlings! OK, I fell down on the job. I was going to post everyday, to keep me motivated, but then the book, this delicious book, took over.
First, a shot of my hero:
101 pages in the last week (and I took a day off).
Sunday: 17 pages
Monday: 15 pages
Tuesday: 15 pages
Wednesday: 15 pages
Thursday: 16 pages
Saturday: 13 pages
Sunday: 14 pages
I have no idea if that ads up to 101 but I was at 150 on my last post and I'm at 251 today. I'm going to make my deadline! Today I wrote angry, violent, powerful sex, and was so exhausted I had to take a two hour nap. Hey, it's a tough job but someone's gotta do it.
I'm listening to Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, Fidelity by Regina Spektor, Lovers in a Dangerous Time by Bruce Cockburn. If I can do another 100 pages next week I'll be ready for the final push (I always finish books in a mad rush).
When I told Jenny Crusie I was doing 15 pages a day she said "that's four thousand words. Don't hurt yourself."
But I'm thriving. I love love love this book!
