Short Update!

I swear, I don’t abandon my blog on purpose. Really.

Long story short, I ended up in the ER on Easter – well, more like at 1:30 in the morning after Easter – and one thing led to another and I just had surgery last Friday to have my gallbladder removed. Let me tell you something. Gallstones? Not pleasant. Not at all.

I’m starting to feel better now. Still dealing with a bit of pain after the surgery, but it’s a lot better than it was last week and I’m picking things up where I left off.

Pain aside, I managed to get some writing done during the past month, as you can see in that nifty word count widget in the sidebar on the right. Not as much as I’d like, but progress is progress. So, my goal for that still-untitled book?

Finish it by July 15th.

Why then? Because I leave for a week of vacation on the 16th and I know I can finish it by then. I have 7,5 weeks worth of writing and an estimated 50,000 words to go. That means a lovely 6,666 words a week until then.

Very doable.

So, that’s my goal. And I will get it done and I will blog at least once a week until then. That’s a promise.

Now, tell me, what have I missed?
