It's a Tough Job, But Someone Has to Do It

Today I'm celebrating going to the county fair! Not only going, but having an opportunity to plop myself on a bench and write. At the fair! What gives me this rare opportunity, you ask? My leg, of course! And the fact that I haven't been able to finish my book by the deadline. I'm still working on it, and I'm sorry to say the word count is not looking good. It's in danger of being far too long, as usual. When I was at 77 K, I thought it would be perfect, yet I still need to wrap up with my final scene, which has a carnival tie-in. I went a little crazy.
That's why I'm so excited to be headed to the fair. For people watching and inspiration, there is no rival. I'm sure to get just what I need to wrap it up, and my kids will be happy too!
Last year at the fair.
Enjoy your respective Fridays, everyone!

  1. Have fun and get lots done at the fair, Jennifer! I'll bet you'll be amazed at what you did. Wishing you a great weekend.

  2. Happy Friday! Hope you have a great time at the fair!

  3. I love to people watch! The fair sounds like a great place to do it! :)

  4. I love the pic! Have a great time, and good luck with the writing. I have the same deadline problem. Every one I set for myself gets blown. *sigh* Just keep plugging away!

  5. I love the fair! Your kids look like they had a good time there last year, too! Have fun and I hope you're able to finish and trim down your book soon!

  6. Thanks for stopping by, all! I did have fun and made my deadline too! (Even got the confirmation that my packet was received by the mentorship committee.)
