*shriek!* When did it become June? I feel like someone just reached into my wallet and swiped a 20 right under my twitching nose.
Fine, then. It matters not, because here in the Pink House, we are time benders. (In my tired old brains, it’s still April.)
Anyhoo, June is going to be a busy month here on the blog. I know May was sparse, but I was busy laying groundwork. For what, you ask? All in good time, my pretties. All in good time.
In the meantime, last month’s dinosaur party is THIS CLOSE to being finished and posted. So close.
Thank goodness, right? Especially since the deadline for May — you remember, the 125,00-word goal? — has just rolled past. Hence, the shriek. No worries. Words written in May count for May.
So as it stands, I’ve got 44,644 words for the month of May. I did my bestest. How did you guys do? Were there any little word savers in the house? Come on…cough ’em up. They don’t gotta look pretty or nothing. 😉
Besides, the dinosaurs — being fairly pleased with themselves over the almost-finished March/April dinosaur party — have decided to up their “production value.” Yup. Those are the words they used. Other phrases I’ve heard bandied about in the past few days have included “high concept,” “story is king,” “entertainment is our polestar,” and — oh, yeah — “…gonna have to work the old lady to massage the budget.” *groan* (There went my 20.)
So if you’d like to see me continue to play beleaguered production assistant to a bunch of stuffed animals, by all means, send me your words! Any words! All the words!
In the meantime, I leave you with the sage words of Oscar Hammerstein II, “June is bustin’ out all over.”
