For the past week and a half I have been totally fiending for carbs. Doughnuts, in particular. Is it the diet? Is it the cooler weather? Whatever it is, I got up yesterday morning and it was a huge test of willpower to keep from hopping in the Jeep and taking a drive up to Donut King. I have no doubt I could have plowed through a half dozen raspberry filled gems. Well, okay, maybe not that many. Two is about my limit before I start getting "sugar sick", but you know what I mean.
Despite the mad cravings, I managed to steer clear of Donut King, and raspberry filled donuts. I'm proud of myself for that, but I am wary of having to run into town later in the week - it's just so darn easy to go through the D/K drive through. There should be a law against the building of such a thing. :P
Anyway, most of my day is going to be spent rewriting and editing. The story itself isn't too bad, but I've got to try and get that word count up. I meant to complete an entire chapter yesterday, but didn't get around to it. So that is my goal for the day - one whole chapter complete and ready to go. I'd hoped to have the story entirely completed by October 1st, but I can tell right now it's going to take probably a good two weeks after that to have it polished enough for submission. Ho hum. I guess the point is not to rush it, just to finish it.
With that in mind, I think it's time for another 4 minute dance break. (This one is actually just a little over 2 minutes. Heh.) I've had this song stuck in my head for the past few days. My favorite REM song EVER: Swan Swan H
Happy Hump Day!
