Thirty thousand words

That's halfway. I'm halfway!

I am impressed.

If you were here watching swear and snort and type and revise, you wouldn't be impressed. You'd be terrified!

Erin O'Brien said...

put a "me" between watching and swear up there.

Happy thirty thousand words to you!

(p.s. tried your butternut squash tip, worked like a charm .. thanks very much!)

You know ahead of time that whatever you're writing is going to be 60,000 words? THAT'S impressive.

I don't even know how long my grocery list is going to be.

Erin O'Brien said...

Well, I don't know exactly. 60K is just a ball-park.

But like when I reach the 30 min. mark in my cardio routing, I know I'm on the other side of the mountain. So it's sort of a psychological milestone.

Then there's all the rewriting and editing!

"put a 'me' between watching and swear up there."

What an oddly erotic statement.

Mazel Tov Erin!

A virtual toast to the next 30,000!

(applause -- great amounts of applause)

Erin O'Brien said...

That should have been "cardio routine" instead of "cardio routing" up there.

Well slap my ass for making two typos in a post that's sole purpose was to trumpet on about a writing milestone!
