Day 25

More interviews with me are up today on the Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit! Debbie Rigaud asks, "What bad habit are you desperately trying to break out of?" (hint: the answer is not "shame"). Megan Kelley Hall asks, "What do you tell people is your favorite book/author?" (the answer is not "Evelyn Waugh's Sword of Honour Trilogy"). Eileen Cook asks, "What do you like to do when you’re not writing?" (the answer is not "Watch Mythbusters and eat chocolate chip cookies" because people do not necessarily want the truth when they read these things).

Thanks to the Girlfriends and to all of you for making the release day of Endless Summer so special. It's great to receive some fanfare, but the best feeling of all is knowing that through it all, I got some more writing done! I said I would write 1000 and I wrote 1027.

Today I will write 1000. I know I'm in danger of missing my May goal of 30,000 with these low counts, but I just don't think I can do any more today, and it's not the parades in my honor distracting me--it's work, and a child out of school for summer.

How about you? We were missing an awful lot of people yesterday. Please check in. We can still make our goals! Don't give up!
