Word counts for me seem to change just as the tides in the ocean do. There are highs and there are lows that come in gradual and sometimes sudden waves.

This week from February 4 to February 10, 2007, is one of my “low tides” with 1,946 words on Magic Pens and 111 words on paper to equal a total of 2,057 words. This week I have had a lot of homework every day and I had to babysit. When I did have time to write, I used it to think of an idea for Matt’s contest, but unfortunately, couldn’t think of anything. I hope that next week will be a much better week for me!

For reading, I once again replaced reading-time to think of idea’s for Matt’s contest and have only read 69 pages of The River by Gary Paulsen and finished up Romeo and Juliet.
