Writing Like a Turtle

IN THE NEWS: Firefighter suspended from band over nod to Obama. Read more HERE.

<---Yeah. That's me with my BROWN hair. I guess I should have smiled more in the picture, but I'm still not sure how I feel about my new look, so my expression is lukewarm at best.


Anyhew...I got my e-reader back! Yay!!! I started happily reading on it last night. SONY provided super service getting it back to me so fast. :)
Thank you, unknown worker in a large corporate building in Texas. You did good work.

On the writing front, I'm working on my chapter five again today--maybe even tomorrow, too. I know I should have written chapter six by now, but the analness (is that a word?) in me won't let me go further until I've edited the death out of the chapter preceding it. I know I've got problems.

No goals this week. Well, maybe to finish chapter five and MOVE ON. But that's all. I promise.

How's your writing going? Are you making more progress than me?

I couldn't believe that story on the band major. When I looked at the video, it seemed to me that he was saluting the President and it was quite appropriate. People are NUTS!

I've always like dark hair - the sultry Katherine Zeta Jones look. Yours isn't that dark. You'll get used to it.

Yesterday I worked at B&N for a few hours on my Ch. 6. It's only halfway done, but this chapters is where the weird stuff starts.

Got about a 1/3 done with chapter 4 last night of my rework. I'm LOVING this "throwing them together" idea of yours. It's working out PERFECTLY! Thanks again!

And BTW, I can't wait to read C5!!!

My writing progress sucks. There, I said it.

I don't think your hair looks bad, but it'll take some getting used to - and I say this from experience.

Jessica said...

I'm pretty sure analness is in my vocabulary too. LOL

I don't think it looks bad but you're not smiling either. Woman! Put up a smiling pic. :-)
Yeah, I saw that about the guy. There should be some clause that they can nod to the President. It's the most ridiculous thing ever to fire him over that.

I love your hair! It's gorgeous and shiny!!! KEEP IT. Or send it to me. Whichever.

I'm writing about 750 words a day. 'tis my goal and, thus far, I'm reaching it. Woot!

I think your hair looks fine. It just takes time to get used to a change, that's all.

I'm in editing mode, trying to get a manuscript polished before I send off agent queries.

I like the brown! :)

You look fabulous, Jennifer. I'm also anal about moving forward with chapters unless I get the previous ones right. That's why I take forver in the first chapter.
