I was on vacation last week with the whole extended family. Ten people all together, including the four nuclears, my parents, and my brother’s family.
We had a lovely time on Martha’s Vineyard, where we typically go each summer. I brought my laptop, thinking maybe, possibly, I’d be able to get some writing in, squeezed around visits to Back Door Donuts, the Flying Horses Carousel, and of course, the beach.
The writing thing just didn’t happen. It didn’t help that my laptop was on the fritz with some weird bug (seems to be okay now, after a lot of tinkering). Any “writing” time was basically banging-head-on-keyboard time. So I didn’t try very hard to make it happen.
Total number of words written the past week? ZERO.
Days left in the WIPMarathon? FOUR.
Think I can squeeze in the last 5k-ish of my goal? PERHAPS.
I’m going to try, anyway. Wish me luck! I’ll make sure to post about any success at the end of the week.
