The Writing Continues...

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

I have decided that I'm shooting for a goal of 100,000 words for my book. That may not be enough, and I might go over it, but it's easier to keep track of your progress with a firm goal in mind. The good news is that I'm at 71,000 and some words now.

The bad news is that I haven't been able to write much the last few days because there's so much going on. I have a job interview on Thursday to prepare for, and my sister just had an emergency c-section. Her twins, my nieces, are on life support, and have a 60% chance to live, each. They think the infection that caused my sister's 103-something fever may have infected the placenta, so they sent it to a lab. If it was in the placenta, that means the babies probably have the illness...which is very bad.

I really, really hope my sister doesn't lose either of her babies. She's been trying so much for so long to have more children, and this was a dream come true for her. Besides, we just lost our mother recently. I don't want her to lose her babies, too.
