… completely unrealistic writing goals today:
a. dismantle, restructure, and rewrite two chapters
b. clean up yesterday’s three chapters reorganizing
c. a general dust and polish to the five chapters currently under scrutiny.
I also have a magical elixir. (Dark roast, 1% milk, no sugar. Thank you, Steven!)
Let the games begin!

I love your morning message board, Laurie. You’ve inspired me to set more stringent goals for myself. I’ve raised my 2 page a day to a chapter.
My goal for today is to read your blog. Done…
remind me to put you in charge of my to-do lists
No sugar? Rugged.
sugar is for tea
Yes, ice cold, dark tea with so much sugar, it particulates to the bottom of the pitcher. It’s the key to surviving a summer in the south.
yay! someone else who knows what Wawa is. seriously people think i’m crazy when i go “so do you guys have a wawa around here?”
i adore wawa…. but i must confess, i am developing a crush on sheetz, too.
and we don’t have either of them up here!
NO! Don’t say those words!
it’s okay wawa, she didn’t mean it
nor in NC. but still. it’s Wawa. the name itself is enough to make my day.
hmm, no sugar? my grandpa finds it hilarious that i put 18, yes 18 packets in my cup. not a mug, that would be too much even for me but the cups you get at like gas stations. he kind of cringed the first time i told him that.
perhaps that’s why drinking coffee makes my stomach hurt.
The thought of 18 packets of sugar in a cup of coffee just about sent me to barf in my wastebasket.
You would be better off sprinkling a few coffee grounds in a sugar bowl and adding asome milk.
hahaha. that made me laugh =]
A Little off topic….
I have a question that you’ve problay* heard but anyways, My question is you keep talking about writing and rewriting chapters is this a new book or is it for the one that comes out in March? Sorry thats a little of topic. Also I saw the Speak Movie this weekend and i liked but it seemed so short and skipped a lot. Did you have say in that or did they just shorten it for time?
Re: A Little off topic….
Good questions, both of them.
1. No, the book I am working on now will come out in 2008. The book coming out in March, TWISTED, was finished at this time last year.
2. I had nothing to do with the movie, except for being on screen as a lunch lady for .05 seconds.
The magical elixir sounds delicious.
Wawa has the best coffee… I wish one was on my way to work in the morning, but alas, I would have to go about 25 minutes out of my way and double my commute.
Now I want wawa. Thanks. 😛
