Happy New Year!

I started my new year off by waking up on a futon to an angry cat clawing at the door demanding to be fed, feeding said cat who continued to dislike me, and then I made my own breakfast: chocolate cake in a bowl with milk.  I had a very nice, casual New Year's Eve at a friend's wherein we watched HGTV and Arrested Development, ate pizza and chocolate cake, drank some wine (I had two whole glasses!  Bringing my 2011 yearly total of wine consumption to approximately 4.5 glasses!), and generally just hung out.  At one point we heard distant fireworks and then like half an hour later were like, oh, happy new year.

Today we took down all the Christmas stuff and grilled out, because this weekend was gorgeous.  Yesterday we went for a walk!  In short sleeves! ♥

The Orphan Queen: 57715 words --> Monthly Total: 8284 words
The Fall: 28 pages --> Monthly Total: 4 pages
Some Passing Shadow: 13 pages --> Monthly Total: 5 pages
The Burning Brand: 28 pages --> Monthly Total: 17 pages

I also edited the screenwriting contest submission quite a bit this month, but I'm not going to count revision pages in these counts, just rough draft pages/words.  I don't gauge revisions the same way, unless I'm doing a Page One more-than-75%-different rewrite.  I am going to try to get back to writing every day or nearly every day, though.  My January goal is to finish the rough draft for The Fall, my TV pilot.  I'm about halfway done, so I think it's definitely an attainable goal.
