WIPFor today’s WiP Wednesday, I thought I’d steal a play from my dear friend Elana’s playbook and report some interesting stats for my summer break.  Now these are not 100% accurate, as I really am not anal enough to keep track of this ( okay, I AM anal enough, but I didn’t keep stats all summer…so I guessed.  But they are really good guesses!)

Are you ready?  Here we go:

# of times I went to the beach – 6 ( I am hoping to squeeze in a few more – I mean seriously, only 6?)

# of times I went swimming – over 30

# of impromtu BBQ’s we had – at least 15 (let me tell you – that’s a lot of ‘surprise’ BBQ’s!

# of trips to the library to get books or hide – over 30 – thank goodness for not one, but two great libraries

# of books read – 15 – no that is not a typo, I read almost almost 3 books a week

# of times I wrote at Starbucks – more than 20 ( I split my time between the library and Starbucks)

# of Venti Unsweetened Green Teas and/or Venti Skinny Vanilla Latte’s I drank – more than 40….yeah, don’t even get me started on this obsession!

# of hours spent deep cleaning the house – over 20 (and I still have stuff on my to-do list)

# of lunch dates, parties, and other fun social things I attended – 8 (strangely low,don’t you think)

# of movies I saw (in the theatre and in the park) -15 ( gotta love the free movies in the park!)

# of hours I waited to see the midnight showing of Harry Potter – 8 (and it was SO MUCH FUN!)

 # of words written in the past 6 weeks  – over 24K

# of pages edited  –  over 100

# of times I “vented” to my best on-line bud because I was frustrated with something writing related – daily!

# of online buds I met in RL this summer – 1 terrific one (but I plan to meet more in the future…can you say ROAD TRIP?)

Whew – I guess it was a pretty busy summer after all.

What have you been up to?  Any interesting facts to report?

    Your progress on both writing and editing is fantastic! It’s amazing that even with all those movies, bbqs, and fun times, you managed to stay focused. You rock!!
