High Five! Egg Rocks! Goal for May 23-30! One More Week of Holy Snappin'

I really didn't think I had a snowball's chance in hell of making this goal, but what do I know?

Goal May 15-22 completed! 5000 more words. I see the light at the end of the rough draft.

I give special kudos to Brimstone Soup YA author Holly. She wrote half of my weekly goal in one day. I appropriately choke on her dust.

So if you are here for your high five. Here goes.

Hayao Miyazaki feels that you have entered a new dimension when it comes to your work! Congratulations.

Tigger, Pooh, Eeyore and Piglet are overjoyed with your success!

Laurie Halse Anderson enthusiastically high-fives your efforts.

Mr. Rodgers' spirit says it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood and is thrilled with the work that you are doing for children. Trolley also is proud of your hard work.

It was a busy week. I even had an egg rock (way bigger than wobbling).

Keep writing. My goal for week May 23- May 30. 3000 words!

Hey, it's a holiday weekend and it's my 18th wedding anniversary. It's more than quantity; it's dedication.

I finished the outline for my fantasy novel and immediately commenced hating it for the cliche-ridden and predictable piece of garbage it is!

The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar sent a stern letter to George W. Bush, along with a polite inquiry to Her Majesty, the Queen of England (not to be confused with Jermajesty, son of Jermaine Jackson).

I also finished my Doomed Love story for MSN Movies, just in time to celebrate my own 10th anniversary.

Snaps to you, Molly!

A derivative, predictable, cliché-infested outline? Hey, wait a second, that sounds like a solid first draft. Drivel? Appropriately crappy? Anne Lamont commends you.

Snap! Snap! Snap!

Thanks for sending out stern letter to George W. I will sleep better tonight. I was not confused before about Jermajesty and Her Majesty, but now I am.

Well, congratulations on your Doomed Love story and your 10th wedding anniversary.

Thanks for the snaps!
