I Bet the Toilets Need to be Cleaned


You know I’m having a bad writing day when I’m sitting around for the umpteenth time with a calculator determining how many pages are left in my book and how many pages need to be in how many chapters before the end.

And then blogging about it.

    Ahh, I guess I have to agree with you on that! πŸ˜†

    I know you have to write so many pages per book but I didn’t know there had to be a certain number per chapter. It seems to me you should be able to just write until you are done with the story! Of course, I know that isn’t how it works though. πŸ™

  2. Suzanne says:

    Carol, there doesn’t have to be a certain number per chapter by any rule or anything. I just like to figure how many chapters I’m going to write and then divide that up into pages in order to convince myself I’m actually doing something writing-related when I’m really staring at the wall. πŸ˜•

    I wish I could figure out how the heck my heroine escapes from the semi-sympathetic villain in my mystery. He’d be a lot more sympathetic, however, if he hadn’t already killed three people. πŸ˜†

    Ha! I’ve got you beat in the checking the page/word count department today. I feel extremely distracted by ANYTHING. I am right now watching the wind blow …

  6. Vicki says:

    Er, meant to add that I’m avoiding this little problem by not even thinking about it. πŸ˜‰

  7. Carol says:

    Ok, I understand! I guess sometimes it is just hard to get started. I hope that doesn’t last long and you come up with an πŸ’‘

  8. Suzanne says:

    Why does playing Guessing Games sound so much more fun today than writing? Is there a way to make a living at that? πŸ™„

  9. Carol says:

    You could be a quiz show host! πŸ™„

  10. Vicki says:

    Yeah! Take over Alex Trebek’s job!

    When I’m already thinking about pages in my book and I’m only at page 200, I’m in trouble.

    Then again, I do this every time.

    *write write write*

    Hmmm…have you cleaned the toilets yet?

  13. Amy K. says:

    ROFLMAO! I’m having similar problems! And also…the little tray under the ice dispenser in my fridge…I think it needs to be sanitized.

    You mean you don’t do this everyday!? 😯

    I feel your pain. Pretty bad when I have my calculator accesory (on the computer) minimized so I can pull it up about every five minutes. heh
