The final push

Holy smokes.

It's 43C today (that'd be 109.4F for those of you north of the equator) and all I feel like doing is turning the airconditioner to "freeze" and sleeping out the day.

But I won't. I can't. I've worked out I only have 5, maybe 6, scenes left to write and my SFD will be done. Finito. But there's a catch - in a mere 15 days, my offspring will be home for summer holidays, and writing with them in the house is just a no-can-do, for me.

Can I do it? Finish this thing in 15 days? I bloody well hope so!

Back to the trenches ...

GO Rachel!! Good luck :-)

As for the heat, I am SO glad I'm not in Adelaide right now! It's been warm enough here (28 last night, 34 today). I hope the heatwave ends soon *s*

5 scenes? That's what, 10000 words? You can do it! You can do it! You *have* to do it, I'm dying to see it! *channeling energy and words and excitement your way*

Pass me some heat, I'll send you some frost from this morning :-)

Good luck with it! Fingers crossed for you.

Don't have time to pop back over there today to say so, but I really liked your last post at the Other Blog about guilt. So easy to go down that road, whether it's about parenting or writing, isn't it?

Thanks for the cheer-leading, guys! I now have (counts on on fingers) *seven* child-free/obligation-free days left to get this thing done. Gah!

(Breathes into paper bag)

Ok. I CAN do this. It's only the SFD, right? Doesn't need to be perfect, right?

Right?!
