*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.”

    I’ll hopefully have a word count for tomorrow. Don’t think it will be great though. Little bit of illness and its mainly been poetry as writers block has decided to kill my ability to write anything longer than a page.

    But yeah, I’ve got some words. Just wish my brain would work better than it is doing right now.

      Thank you! Every little bit counts! 🙂 Hope it gets better for you soon though. It stinks to feel stuck.

        6,289. No idea how I did that.

        Yeah. But whats worst is I know what I want to write, know the words I want to use, can see it in my head…but when it comes to putting it on a page, Blarg. Gotta give it time I guess.

        Anyhoo, hope Mays word count is reached. Tis a big a one.

          Wow! That’s awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I think we’ll get there. Seems I always underestimate how long things are going to take. Hoping to get last month’s dino soiree up tonight. Keep thinking I need more images. Good grief.

          Anyway, I understand the whole *blarg* thing. I tend to deal with it by scrubbing my face vigorously with the palms of my hands and ask myself, “What the hell am I trying to do here?” Sometimes it works. 🙂

          Keep at it though. You’re a wonderful writer.
