Score card,.... good night

Getting my arm up on the desk to type isn't like having a dagger plunged into my shoulder repeatedly, so I guess it's safe to say the worst of the tendonitis is over. Percocet is evil. I say this on good authority, having been stoned for the better part of 5 days. My state of mind also explains the rather snotty rant I posted on the other day on the banality of television.

In other news. I've decided to keep a running score on my blog regarding my failures/success in writing. An affirmation of sorts, to remind myself that writing is a hard business, but at least I'm trying. So here's the first scorecard (and I must do this quickly before tonights Percocet kicks in):

Published works: two short erotic stories - Bella Fiore, The Cavern in the Green
Rejections: ALL of the children's stories I've ever written/sent (the list is very long)
Completed: The Color of Passion, Nonsuch Beauty
To Market: The Color of Passion, Nonsuch Beauty, one children's story My Scary Pet Snake
Agents: Two queries currently out
WIP: pirate story - 10%, novel 1- 15%, novel 2 - 10%

And so,... um,... z z z z z z z z z z z z z z zz z z z zz z zz zzz zzzz zz z zzz zz zzz zzz zz zzzz zzzzzzz

Enjoyed reading your scorecard, and I like the idea! :) I think I'll do something like it on my blog.

I'm glad to hear the worst of the tendonitis has passed. May it soon be a distant memory!

Argh! Sorry about the deleted comment - that was me; Blogger's got the hiccups. :)

Thanks - I'm thinking of putting the scorecard in the sidebar as a way to keep nudging myself along. I've got too much pride to NOT let the numbers change! (did that make sense?)

Does this mean you're giving up the drugs?? ;D

Ha! yes - I'm taking the Percocet off the shelf. But I'm not flushing them, just yet.
