I get the distinct feeling I’ve done this before.
Well, July is just about done. The main thrust of the month for me has been Camp NaNoWriMo, in which I wrote 40,000 words—an amount which I’m quite pleased with, as it’s all gone into the second draft of The Teller’s Apprentice, my current writing project.
There was about a week in which I wrote nothing because I was sick. As a result I got to today and had to write 5343 words before tonight, as I don’t write on Sundays and tomorrow is the last day of the month. 5.3K is more than my usual cup of tea, but I managed it.
And with things apart from writing—this month I went on an adventure. With two of my brothers and a couple of friends I went on the buses through the city to visit a kid’s camp my older brother was helping to run. It’s the first time I’ve done anything like that, and despite a few planning deficiencies, I quite enjoyed the day.
Otherwise, life has been fairly normal. I’ve reread a few books, kept up to date with blogs and forums. Baby sister Rebekah is growing well. She’s had the same nasty cold I did, but she’s more or less over it by now, which is a relief. The younger kids have been excited today because another sister got the Lego set she’s been waiting for for months—very patiently too, I might add. All in all, life.
Wherever you are, whoever you are, I pray you’re doing well.
