The Tally Sheet

Last week I shared my resolution to write three pages a day. With one week gone, here's the tally sheet: 15 pages written. I'm feeling good about that, although realistically, there may be 3 good ones there, 3 that need serious revision, and the rest that need tossing. Maybe. You just never know where one of those off the wall ideas will lead. So, will I toss anything? Not yet.

During the rest of the week:

1. I spent 6 hours in the dentist chair on the way towards spending more hours there before the bridge is complete. Last night part of the temporary came apart - along with some serious pain - so it's back to the dentist for the SECOND temporary bridge today.

2. Spent a couple of hours with Dell support getting rid of three Trojans that managed to sneak past my anti-virus and malware programs. That's what happens when you visit questionable sites, I guess. But I really needed to learn how to break into a museum without tripping the alarms. Sigh.

Off to the dentist (a 120 mile jaunt, but the roads should be clear), leaving husband to hold down the fort. I'll stay in Boise until my Book Signing and Reading at Rediscovered Books in downtown Boise on Thursday night (7:00).

Packing for three days is a pain, especially with a sore mouth. Sipping coffee off to the side. Packing the computer, though, because somewhere along the way, I plan on getting my 3 a day attempted.

Happy writing week, everyone!


  1. I had dentist debacles these past two weeks, too. Another one of my writing friends has had the same. Must be the month for it!

    Hope you feel better soon. :-)

  2. Ooh, dentist sounds miserable. But I'm glad you got some writing done. Good for your!!

    I never have computer problems, probably because I never go into questionable sites. Pays not to.

  3. Good for you on the writing! :)

    I hope you feel better soon.

  4. I hope your Boise book signing goes well, Karen. And I sure do hope you don't have to go through any more painful dentist visits. That can sure dampen a perfectly good mood.

  5. Karen, I hope to make your signing tonight. I'm impressed with your resolution and your ability to stick with it!
