Small excerpt from my WIP...  
So I am proud to say that my WIP is back on track. For now I will call it "The Ansley Files" I don't plan on titling it for a while.
    The taste of death lingered patiently at the back of my throat. It was bitter and dry, and I was finding it uncomfortably familiar. I swallowed hard pushing the lump of sickness  farther down, but I knew that it wouldn't take long before I tasted it again

I have been so lost. It is hard for me to balance kids, hubby, work, cleaning, and friends with finding time to write. I have made a hard decision though. I WILL NOT WRITE AT WORK! I used to love writing in my spare time at work, but I have realized that I obsess over it when I should be concentrating on growing my own business. I do love my job, and I would hate to be distracted from it, or not put my full attention into my WIP as well.
That being said....I have rewritten my first chapter 10 bagillion times and I have finally found the perfect beginning that I have been fantasizing about for months.
I would like to write at least 3000 words a night (when the kids are asleep).
If I can at least finish my first draft with 55000 words in the next month I will consider that I major success for myself. With it completely outlined and already started, this shouldn't be a problem...we shall see ;)
