May scores up!

Thought it might be nice. What with July coming and all.

A disgraceful number of us were on a break. We should be ashamed. Congratulations to all who resisted the lure of Slackeriness.

Way back at the start of the month Merry issued a challenge to herself - that she must submit this month or go to instant smackdown, no matter how many words she's written. Just a reminder for you there, Merry... Oh, yes, and while the urge to write is wriggling up from my little toe, it hasn't quite made it all the way to anywhere useful yet. Still, it's going in the right direction. Hm, might take a lightning-quick novel submission to save me this month *peruses little agent shortlist*.

Actually, though, when I see Robin's catalogue of Stuff From The Koala's Life, I'm suddenly not surprised that last month, and most of this, turned out to be unexpected write-off. And she didn't even mention everything that my furry paws have been juggling. Now I'm wondering how I'm fitting in breathing.

Nonetheless. Normal service will be resumed. Soon.

Go, go, tingly toe!

Brings a whole new meaning to CYA'ing. Hehe.

Yeah, I submitted in May. Lots. And in June. Lots. Got me an agent yet? Nots.

But at least I'm not looking over my shoulder at Bloody Koala Claws.

I've crossed 4000 words so secured a point at least. Will sneak in a submission to get one more.

As for you happy hunting (agents, not us)!

I think I'm up to about 800 words now. Such a big fuss. I'll just pop out another 3200 words during lunch. Uh huh.

Fired off a query today...and who knows? The power of the Koala Challenge is mighty. It could be this random, saving-my-ass query that turns out to be The One. That's why I'm here, friends, that's why I'm here. Oh, yes, it's all about the loving.

Uh oh. I don't even want to talk about June.

Can we just skip straight to the next month?

Whirlochre said...

Not much writing done here this month.

Just decorating and submitting.

I feel like someone has sucked out my life force and used it to inflate Nick Clegg's ego.

Merry Monteleone said...

Yeah, instant smackdown... I was actually going to take the month off... no excuses... I just couldn't get it done this month at all.

Smack me please. I'll put up the button on my blog for shame.
