(Jeez, when I’m not so obsessed with word count, I’ll take 30 minutes and learn how to do links.)

Hope your week is going well!

P.S. Almost forgot! Re: my other goal, brainstorming and/or exercises for class – met that too. It was all exercises for class, but that is developing new work, so it’s all good.


  1. I love how you are ‘banking’ your words! What a great visual! Sounds like you are making great progress with your work! I love ROW 80 as well!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Heather. I got a quick look at your website – looks great. I’ll come back for a longer visit later today.


  2. You’re getting more word rich by the second 🙂 Keep up the great work.

    • Thanks! and thanks for stopping by.
