Feeling Inspired #ROW80 Check-in

Did you go to the RWA Nationals and see the award ceremony? I didn’t, but I got to watch it live streaming. It’s funny how just getting to see that little bit helped me open up that file this morning and start diving in. I wrote nearly 2k words so far today. Woot!

It’s been a while since I’ve written that much at one time.

I so badly wanted to go to the New York conference this year, but I couldn’t. I’m glad they were able to live stream the awards ceremony. I watched the entire thing, except for the moment when the power cord was unplugged. It was a mishap that made me wonder for a moment or two, what, that’s it? But then they came back, saying on Twitter what had happened.

It was nice seeing the winners walk across the stage. Many of them giving little bits of advice and inspiration. The little bits of the story that was read in-between the winner announcements was fun too. Next year, they will be in San Diego. I’d love to go, but I’m sure I will have to miss that one too. Boo hoo  😦

While I was waiting for the live streaming to start last night, I took about 15 minutes and free wrote a bunch of crap down on a piece of paper. Then I went about trying to figure out how I could use any of it in the story I’m working on. Surprisingly, I was able to come up with ideas for all of it. I’ll have to do that more often. Maybe, hopefully, this book will be one of my longest stories yet.

Other than that the only thing going on is a Broken Tooth.

Oh no, not the dentist again!

It’s been a couple of years since I had that root canal done. Now I have a tooth on the other side of my mouth acting up. I’m pretty sure they are going to have to pull this one. I’ll have to wait to make the call to set up an appointment with the Dentist tomorrow because it’s Sunday. So, I just hope they will be able to see me right away.
