49,079 Words...

Blogging about my word count is keeping me motivated. I know, I know, word count doesn't matter, but those silly numbers make me excited for some reason. I'm currently in the fourth week of The Artist's Way, which is still fantastic. I've stayed faithful to my morning pages. This experience is also unearthing some things that have been bothering me, which I was conveniently ignoring.

For one thing, I've just stopped caring about my cluttered, dirty house. I brush it off, saying "I don't have time" or "Who cares? We're not going to live here for much longer anyway..." But its gone way too far. I would estimate that we don't need 50% of the stuff in our house. 25% is probably garbage (not literally, but it could be thrown out) and 25% I'm sure we could donate. It's time to devise a plan. One corner at a time. Although I'm not there half the time, it doesn't mean that the house doesn't need some TLC. The basement scares me the most, *shudder*...

Anyway, that's all for now. 49,079 words complete!

Oh! I feel you! I have slated this afternoon as a "haul everything from the basement into the garage and call a VOA truck" afternoon. I can't stand it anymore!

Congrats on your word count! That's awesome!
