How did that happen?

Old What’s Her Face* took the grandkids to the movies. Something about box trolls or something. I passed, no Clint Eastwood or Bruce Willis.

I wound up finding some writing time. I answered a few more questions for my heroine, and allowed her to flex a little backbone.

Then I tortured my little girl victim some more. She keeps going deeper down the wormhole.

All told, I added 2912 new words to my story. Total word count is 35,220.

Now, of course, it’s an evening of The Garfield Movie, Scooby Doo, and Sky High. (Thank God for Bruce Campbell, and that hot chick who played Velma in Scooby Doo.) Lots of squealing, refusing to eat, and Ninja Turtles all over the floor. I suppose it was about my turn. Pass me a Ninja Turtle.

  3. I saw the last 15 minutes of Box Trolls when I went to the drive-in a couple of weeks ago to see the movie that was on after it. It looked stupid and worse yet, the songs were annoying. Lucky you! LOL! 🙂 Now the real question is, is she really out at the movies or did she take the kids shopping to Bed, Bath & Beyond? I think the latter. 🙂
