Morning, Anne. It's going to be awful here too - and build all week. Someone needs to invent a waterproof computer we can take into a pool.

Waiting for the coffee...

Good Morning AnneB! I just realized if multiple mornings go by without me working on my story, I get grumpy. So hear I am back to working on revisions.

Slept a bit late this a.m., but have the whole day ahead of me and only a couple of hours worth of chores. Too hot to go outside except to hydrate the herbs growing in pots and the poor struggling tomato!

Oh, it is so not early. Walked the dog and let her swim in the creek, then came back and stared at my new kayak which is sitting in my living room and confusing the cats. It's too hot to take it out! But yesterday I got 4K+ done on my WIP because it was too hot to do anything outside. Today is the same, so...back to work! :oncomputer

Good morning, fellow toilers!
AnneB, love the "struggling tomato" phrase!
Back from our road trip and time to put shoulder to the wheel, but, I need to do some reading, too.  It sounds as if we're all struggling with triple digits, like the hapless tomato!
Aloha and happy writing,
Tori :palmtree

Wow! It's only 7:40 and I'm here! Well, JFriday, the neighborhood kids have come to accept that we keep our bicycles in our family room, but a kayak i the living room? You probably can't even hang laundry on that.

I'll write for a while this morning, but tomorrow is my son's birthday, so I've got stuff to do for that.  :cupcake

Hi, Vonna! Hapy writing. I was up at 6 AM but couldn't log on because of some stuff going on with beta-testing the site for the merger. All fixed now, at least as far as being able to log in here!

Good morning! I made it up by 6 a.m. today so the week's starting out well, and I have an idea for one scene I'm going to start working on in a few minutes.

I've just been reviewing stuff for today's critique session. It's such a relief to have one of my critique partners back in town--they travel way too much. I hate it when they're off having fun without me (pout, pout).  :waiting

7:12 AM. I've been up since 6. Forgot to check in yesterday but I was up on time (i.e., way too early) yesterday as well. Haven't gotten much done since Wednesday a.m. due to changing internet providers (involved getting the router to play nicely with the new modem, getting my email's outgoing server configured correctly -- don't ask) but it all seems to be working now.

And I did do a bit every day and have done Morning Pages as well. Older Son is home from DC this weekend so I'm distracted but I am going to keep going. I am. I am.

Good morning, Anne! Glad you set everything up yesterday (I won't ask).

 I'm here too, a bit late. Got a large chunk of writing done yesterday morning and have to work on chapter one again after receiving my crit group's excellent comments.

I'm up, working on a new plot. My house is being invaded by teenagers at 2:00,  :partytime and they plan to stay the rest of the day and all night, so this will be my only chance to work on this tangled plot.

Enjoy having your son home, Anne! JFriday, congratulations on having a wonderful critique group. I love my group, but summer is always tough because everyone travels so much. I love having my son around so much, but it will be nice when my critique group gets back on schedule.

Liz barely raises her arms and waves at all those who are up this morning wondering why the heck she is up and on the computer. 

Brain is not functioning. :paperbag

Anne waves back at Liz, hoping Liz's unconscious kicks out some good copy anyway! Nothing much has happened here writing-wise, although we've had great family time so I'm not complaining. Older Son flies away this evening, husband goes back to work tomorrow so maybe then all this pent-up energy will come pouring out my fingertips.

Good morning, Liz and AnneB!  I'm back in the PB trenches, after working on the YA.  Talk about a brain-shift -- uffda!  I need :coffee3
Happy writing!
Aloha,

Very late good morning to all. I was here earlier but didn't check in. I had my morning hot coffee earlier; just made some fresh iced coffee but it's decaf, so I don't know how much it will help the little gray cells, as Poirot would say. Anne, I hope you had a lovely time with your son. Tori, good luck on the pb writing and Liz, did your brain start functioning??

Good morning everyone. I'm here and totally unmotivated. I have to get some serious writing in before I go out today, though, so...(heads for  :coffee3:)

Good Wednesday morning to everyone. I'm up later than usual but working. My teenage son who usually sleeps late is gleeful that he got up before I did.

Not too early for me, either, but good morning, Vonna and JFriday!  After powering through pb revisions yesterday, I have a few more to tackle, but I'm going to do "homework," and do some reading.  That's my favorite kind of homework!
Happy writing, everyone! *reaches for  :coffee3:

I slept until 7 a.m. today despite setting my phone alarm sounding at 5:45. Just too rainy and damp to get up earlier. I promise to do better tomorrow, folks! It is comforting to know I'm not alone in taking it easy today!
