This week was nice. I headed out of town for a three-day weekend with my folks and my in-laws. Getting out of town and heading to small-town U.S.A affords me some time to get away into a quiet room and do some reading. This time it was trying to get through Brandon Sanderson’s epic novel The Way of Kings.  I didn’t finish it on my vacation, but I did finish it when I got back.  Amazing novel, you can see my review for it here
Due to the long vacation weekend, I was not able to keep up with my word count goals. I did write each day, but I told myself not to push myself as I just wanted to make sure I sat down daily to do something, and I did that. 
It was vacation after all.
When I got back to the real world on Tuesday, I was able to have the joy of sitting in the dentists chair for two hours counting the number of flinches I had as the Novocain was wearing off. Yeah, it hurt, and my gums are still sore and swollen two days later.
So, I didn’t write any on Thursday. But I kept up with it the rest of the week once I was over my Little Shop of Horrors reenactment.

So the lesson here kids: Dentists=evil.
And Keep writing daily!
Oh and go read Way of Kings, it’s good regardless of how much Novocain you’re on.
