Day Fifteen // Saturday // 2,193 words
Okay, so on Saturday...I, um...I kinda hit 100k... *SCREAMS* And I went through with my resolution, raised my Camp goal to 50k, and I'm still ahead. *is so happy*
Day Sixteen // Resurrection Sunday // 1,254 words
Easter was absolutely lovely. We had a Sunrise service at 7:00 AM, followed by breakfast. Then Tucker and I helped our youth group leader hide Easter eggs for the little kids. We still had oodles of time before the worship service at 11:00, so my family got in the car and drove down some back roads (during which time I wrote my Easter post). After an epic church service, we had lunch, visited my granny, and came home. I wrote for a while before twin seven-year-old cousins showed up (those two + Tucker about killed me, y'all), and then collapsed into bed late that night. :P
Day Seventeen // Monday // 1,023 words
Monday was kind of 'bleh' as I started back to school after a week off. Writing wasn't going so well either, but there was thunderstorms/dark clouds which SHOULD have helped my writing mood. But didn't. XDD
Day Eighteen // Tuesday // 1,513 words
Tuesday was just an ordinary day with school, writing, Bible study, and going to the used book sttooorreeee. <3 <3 *beams*
Tuesday was also the 75th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raid. Whether you're interested in WWII history or not, I totally suggest reading this epic article.
Day Nineteen // Wednesday // 1,509 words
Writing went well Wednesday! I got more than my word goal in around pottery class, school, and church. ^_^
Day Twenty // Thursday // 1,700 words
Thursday was eeepiicccc. School, writing, supper with a couple from church...yeah, that's about all I remember. :P
Day Twenty-One // Friday // 1,100 words
Friday morning at about 11:30 I had...wisdom teeth cut out. Ouchie. :P I wasn't planning on getting any writing done, but I actually did do some Friday night which was nice. :)
Sorry, but y'all aren't getting pics of my swollen face and wild eyes. If everyone minds their p's and q's, such photos may appear in the April recap. ;)
// Snippets //
Bethany felt a smile sliding across her face as it was obvious that Lenore was going to come up with anything short of a flat-out lie to keep the heat off herself.
“And who would you say loves that little dog the most?” Erin inquired next.
“God,” Lenore replied, twisting her fork into the pie remains. “God loves everyone a whole lot, and all the animals too.”
Michael snickered, looking away from the table. Bethany pretended to cough. James and Lydia smiled, containing their mirth with the ease of years of experience. But Erin was the only one who didn't find the answer amusing.
“Yes, He does, honey. But that does not mean you should be deceitfully feeding pie to the dog.”
Lenore paused for a second before, turning to Michael with lips pursed. “What does deceitfully mean?”
“Deceitfully…” Michale repeated, tracing the top of his water glass with his finger. “Well, it means that you're hiding what you're doing from your mother. Deceit is almost another word for lying.”
Joshua flopped to the ground, stretching to lie flat of his back and slinging one arm across his face to block out the sun from his eyes. “This is exhausting,” he mumbled.
“Aww, it isn't so bad,” David grinned and sank to the ground next to him. “You're just miffed that all the big guys ganged up on you.”
Joshua lifted his arm from his face and glared at David. “This is coming from the man who was up against two fellows that might have equaled a third his weight between them? Don't even talk to me.”
David rolled his eyes. “That's an exaggeration.”
“Maybe,” came from the ground beside him, and David figured that was as much of an agreement as he was going to get.
How's Camp going? Hit your goal yet? Have a good Easter? Do you have wisdom teeth? (Or did some human with a knife steal your wisdom from your head...? XDD)
