More Christmas


More Christmas. I love this time of year.

Status: Slept 12 hours last night. Feeling much better. I think I need to get out-and-about tonight; good food, good wine and a celebratory beverage or two are in order. Feel the need to go on a date, but I’ve been pretty hermetic over the last 6 months, so have no prospects in play which means I’ll be travelling solo. Not a problem, that’s how I usually roll.

I had a really good week for writing. Total word count for the seven days, last Saturday to yesterday (Friday), was 3,514 words; 4,265 if you count last Friday. Split between journaling at 1,521 and the short story itself at 1,993. My goal was 2,500 words for the short story, or 500 per day, but I came pretty close during my first real week of this, so I’m going to call it a win. Total short story word count for the eight days is 2,544 and the total number of words in the story is 3,065. My goal is to finish the first draft at 7,000 words, and I’ll aim to do that next week.

Next up: call with my second network contact postponed to Monday, he has an opportunity in Halifax, looking forward to hearing more about it. Call with my first network contact will take place in the New Year, need to firm up the call time. I’m expecting to receive an offer from the company which interviewed me for a third time on Wednesday; thought I might have it by Friday which is giving me second thoughts, perhaps I misread this. No matter though, let’s see how it plays out.
