150,000 words by Dec. 31, 2011




Okay, my original goal was to write a quarter of a million words in one year.



I still want to and plan to do that but for this year, since the year is nearly half over ...



I've revised the goal to my writing 150,000 words by December 31, 2011.



Since I have my NanoWriMo in November and will have to write 50,000 for that, 



I'll still need to write 100,000 words to make my goal by the end of this year.



I calculated below, how many words per day I would need to write every day ...



With the exception of November when it'll be 1,667 words per day.




670 words per day x 5 months [approximately 150 days] + 50,000 in November =  150,000 words!



Rules:   The only rule that I can think of is no copy and pasting are allowed from anyone's writing but. my. own!



Journaling words count, blog posts count, letters written count and blog-a-thon posts count as well.   



Heck, rambling even counts as long as it's not the same words over and over.    : )

My "Twenty Wishes" Quilt





I have making a quilt on my Twenty Wishes list and today, I took a step towards it.


On Ebay, I found the following and bought them ... may have to buy more though to make the full quilt.



I'm so excited and want to get started on it ... you know, like right now.   lol 


They are 2 inch squares and I do plan on quilting it by hand.

I hope you dance


I Hope You Dance By Lee Ann Womack

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small
When you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give fate a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider

Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

Wants to look back on their years and wonder
Where those years have gone
I hope you still feel small
When you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

Wants to look back on their years and wonder
Where those years have gone ...
