Summer Holiday Beano

I've been churning away at the novel .. sonetimes it's snail-slow and others so fast I could finish the novel by the end of the summer.  This fluctuating pace is directly in line with how many extra curricular activites I've got going on.  Take the allotment ... nothing grows as well as the weeds, just miss one week down there and they're towering triffid-like over my beloved beans.  And then there's the pigeons who managed to strip virtually all of the redcurrants off the bushes in the space of two days plus breaking lots of branches too.  I'm not one for cliches, but headless chicken's one that definitely applies to the past month but it's the start of the school holidays and I'll be down to working just 2 days a week.  My holiday target is to write at least 10,000 words between now and the end of August ... if I can write more than that in between days out, picnics, tidying up my side of the bedroom then whoooppeeeee but if I'm still on 2,000 by August 28th I'm going to chain myself to the desk, install a commode and bash away until I limp up to the magic 10,000. :)
