Books I finished this week:
Books I'm reading now (and some still):
~ Under The Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy (Classics Challenge) ~
457 of 1026 E.E. Cummings poems finished (30 this week)
~ If Only We ~ 23,925 ~
~ Before We Knew ~ 11, 449 ~
~ Whatever This Is ~ outlining ~
I'm getting somewhere. I was hoping to be at 25,000 by this week, but I'll still take it. I'll break that by next week, and hopefully more.
I read a good reminder last night on The Feather And The Rose about getting serious about revisions. It's so easy to get distracted with things, ANYTHING, and not write/revise. I've been super busy lately, but I know there are plenty of things I've been doing that are not worthwhile uses of my free time that could be much better spent working on my novel.

I've got a plan to go to the zoo in a couple weeks. I am SO SO SO SO SO excited to go. I go probably once a year. Last year, I went in the beginning of July. It was a typical day at the zoo with all the same animals I'd always seen... I find out a couple days later that my zoo (The Toledo Zoo) got LEMURS. Two beautiful ring-tailed lemurs. What's the big deal?
I FREAKING LOVE LEMURS.
They came from the Duke Lemur Center in North Carolina so that they can have babies... and they did have babies. AND THE BABIES ARE ADORABLE. As you can see. Well, all lemurs are adorable. Every time I look at them, I want to just drop my current career path and go to school so I can take care of them for a living. It's still one of my dreams to own a lemur. I just need to find a state that will let me have one because I'm pretty sure Ohio's laws have changed in the last year.
So anyways. Expect some pictures. And infinite SQUEE-ing when I get back from the zoo. ^_^
Until next time...
PS: Could this update BE any better? I mean, Nathan Fillion AND lemurs?! I think I'm in heaven.
