Public Humiliation



Okay, so the Koala kicked my ass. There. I said it. I failed miserably for the month of June. Please taunt torture and fuck with me appropriately.

I've been largely off of blogging the last few months, but fucking around on facebook wayyy more than I should. If you catch me in either place for prolonged periods of time, ask me what my wordcount is... If I have none, feel free to kick the hell out of me... I always have some hell in reserve anyway.

Good luck!

Oh my God, it's a Precie sighting!!!!

Hi, Precie, how are you?!!!! I miss you around the writing/blog-0-sphere!

Okay, instead of a wordcount, I'm aiming for completing the rough draft (it's actually a second or third revision, because I keep going back and editing, but still) I'm aiming for the end by the end of July... and at least one article submission... that'll shoot me straight up the koala ladder, I believe, but it's my aim either way.

I'll say, Chocolate Turtles... me loves them.

Dealio my Precie.

Ah, you see, the Koala got hold of Precie, oh, around eight months ago.

And Precie's still recovering.

How's that for incentive?

Mckoala, I bow before your evil claws and minions, I do.

Back at it, baby... I'm hitting it this month if it kills me.

wv: sycoo... which is kinda like psycho, which is what I probably am considering the monumental bit of writing I just took on... worth it, it is.

I just now got back to check this thread and realized the havoc created by my iPod's auto-correct function. Sheesh.

I'm toying with the idea of getting on the Koala's list again, but I have less than two weeks before the fall semester. I'm hoping to eventually get to a point where I can write for myself while teaching, but I haven't learned that brain-switching skill yet. If anything, when I'm teaching lit, I despair that there's no point to me even trying. Yay.

Anywhooooo..choc turtles are a fav of mine as well! So at the end of July, we'll see who gets to enjoy them. (evil giggle). Good luck!! Write like the wind!

I'm going to piggyback on your ass whooping. Sounds less painful than asking for my own.

Merry Monteleone said...

All right, Precie... and just to sweeten the incentive, if I don't make the mark, I'll send you the turtles :-)

Hey Sarah,

You can take half my whoopin' any time :-)
