Ten Thousand Words

PS Publishing are celebrating their 10th anniversary by selling Anniversary Gift Boxes of their books at a reduced price. As an early Christmas present (or rather a late one as I won't receive them until after the holidays) I ordered a collection of Ten Novellas that would have originally cost £100. I can't wait to see what books I receive.

Remember my blog post of December 1st when I was high from completing NaNoWriMo and I had such big, big plans? They're already floundering. I predicted the second draft of 'Theatre' would be at 20,150 words by now. It currently stands at 10,156 - but they are 10,156 brilliant and superbly plotted words of course. ::wink::

Of course!

The novellas thing sounds exciting! There's nothing better than getting books in the mail. (well, okay, getting chocolate in the mail is nice, and I'm sure getting book contracts in the mail is even better. But you know.)

I love new books.

I need more novellas in my life. I dropped all my little holiday allowance on books and I still have a list half a mile long of stuff I need! (Not to mention my to-read pile is getting out of control... Yay!)

New books are exciting, and so are second drafts! Sounds like you're having fun. :D

There are always more books that need to be bought.

I've got these novellas, a Tom Picirilli (sp?) from Shroud, a Joe Hill novella, and the Return to Luna anthology all waiting to land on my doormat.

I need to get caught up on my reading. Maybe over the weekend. maybe right now. all I am doing is wasting time online ;) I know what you mean by more books that need to be bought. I have a ton on my 'to buy' list.

I have a regular Amazon habit just to keep the books showing up on my porch.

It's always hardest - at the holidays - to keep up with goals.

I'm floundering too - beneath sugar cookies, knitting, writing, reading, wrapping...
