Exciting changes at our house – a toilet that auto flushes when you wave your hand over a sensor. Or when you lift the lid. Or when you stand too close. Or when you…

So, I put up last week’s word count on Saturday! Woops. Here’s this week’s count.

How to Sex Your Snake

Genre – Mystery
New this week – 968 words
Total Count – 26196 words
Release date:  Summer 2015

Goals from last week: chps 12 and 13 to the editor. Well, ch 12 is in chunks and June feels kinda lost in it all. 13 is just notes.  As you can probably tell, I stayed distracted this week. I wrote 30 new pages to my untitled script because I couldn’t get the characters out of my head and got a couple hundred more down on the YA piece.  I need to work solely on Snake for the next two days. Once I have 12 and 13 in the mail to my editor, I’ll go back to the script.  I’m in the barcart Wednesday night, so I’ll work on the YA piece between drinks.

I’ve stayed on my super hero viewing kick,  finishing Netflix’s outstanding Daredevil series, re-watching The Avengers and then sitting through a painful first (and last) viewing of Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer. Wow. Anytime you see superheros dancing you know you’re in for a stinker. (Ironman 2, Spiderman 3(?)  I don’t recall ever seeing any of the x-men dance though I can easily picture Hugh Jackman hoofing it up as Wolverine)  The F4 actors must have been contractually obligated to return. I can’t imagine anyone reading that script and thinking, yeah, when do we start?  Especially the amazing Michael Chiklis. Antman opens next week and I hope I can find someone to go with me. After Ultron, the hubby has vowed to never set foot in another screening for a superhero movie. I completely understand. Ultron was just tiring and even I was tempted to walk out of and I love that gang.

Speaking of that gang, Netflix needs to give Black Widow the Daredevil treatment and I need to walk the dogs.

Write on,
