I am back!

And I am really tired. And nowhere near caught up on emails and LJ and everything else that's been continuing without me. :P

So, the big retreat post with pics etc. will come tomorrow. But, in the meantime, I can do a little celebratory dance because--I made my writing goal! I wrote just over 29,000 words on LOKI'S BOY at the retreat, bringing the total word count up to about 32,000. As hoped, I'm at least halfway done! (estimated finished word count = 60,000 words, which is what most of my novels end up around)

*happy dance*

Hope you all have been having a happy and productive week as well!

Heh, well, I didn't say they were *good* words. I write my first drafts fast--and very, very rough. :D

Congrats! I'm glad to hear the retreat went well (and just a little sad I couldn't be there myself...).
