message 7: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 620 comments Update:

I wrote 3 more articles, and edited 2 of them, over the last 4 days. Two have been posted. I need to get back to my book, and my reading. I don't want to start drifting away from my goals so early in the year!

message 11: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 620 comments Well, it's February, and so far, I'm falling behind on my writing goal. I had wanted to write something everyday, preferably a page or two (or more...) of my book. Unfortunately, health problems are causing me to not be in the writing mood. I'm going to try to push past them, and get some words done today. My total word count (in my book) since I started this on January 21 is 3,762.

*Dances into Andrea's cubical*

Hey Andrea, Edward told me that you might need a little inspiration this beautiful day.

*Sets a bottle on your desk*

UB. Tonic.

Un-Blockage Tonic is especially created for “Writer’s Constipation.”
Caution: use sparingly, as to not cause the dreaded “Writer’s diarrhea.”


Oh, and thank you soOOoo much for the breakfast brownies. They started my day off to perfection.

May your day be filled with many magical moments.

*Dances out of cubical*


message 41: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 620 comments *walks into den and sees bottle and note on desk. Reads note from Dee*

Ooooh...this is exactly what I need!

*measures out a teasponfull and sits down at computer*

Now, let's see how this stuff works. Thanks Dee! Enjoy the brownies.


message 42: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments *peeks in* Andrea? *sigh* Not here.

Thanks for much for checking in- and the delicious brownies were yum-o! Hope you're writing's coming along well!

*sets cookies on desk* I'd have made you brownies, but they wouldn't have been as wonderful as yours.

*Peter whinnies*

Yes, Peter, I know. I should go do homework. Let me just leave Andrea a calling card.
