Okay, here's a writing update...
Last weekend on my writing retreat, I wrote non-stop. I went in to the weekend at 11,000 words and by the time I got home Sunday afternoon, I was at 38,000 words. By Monday night, I hit my 50,000 word goal. Actually NaNoWriMo is thirty days to 50,000 words but I was in such a groove that I wanted to hit that goal early on in the month.
Then I had the last three chapters of my book to finish editing thanks to my critique partner and then had to re-format the file and submit it again to Create Space and order my proof copy.
I had to then edit three chapters for my critique partner's book and get that back to her and correct 8 assignments from the online dialogue class that I am teaching PLUS critique/correct a research paper that one of my former students sent to me and asked for help on. My fingers feel like they are both super-glued to a keyboard and permanently bent to the "home row" position.
This week I need to come up with four Disney-related blog posts to submit to a site that I've been working with, while writing and editing and teaching, and cleaning and working my job.
Can we all say hand cramp?
