Liberate the Lush! In Which I Bribe Myself

So. Yesterday, I said that if I made it to 10k words, I got to buy the stuff that I put in my Lush shopping cart. Because ZOMG, I love Lush stuff, but super expensive, yo.

And.

Um.

I didn't make it to 10k words.

I made it to almost 9k words.

Which is SO. CLOSE.

And I even went to bed early in the hopes of wrapping up that last 1k of words and then splurge on Lush.

But.

Um.

I mean, look. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are WAY GOOD. And I don't have good enough internet at home to watch them, so I was way behind. And also the internet here at the retreat IS good enough. And.

Um.

Yeah.

So I stayed up two more hours watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries instead of writing. Even WITH a shopping cart full of Lush stuff to bribe me. (Which, btw, should tell you how awesome TLBD is, and means that you should start watching now, like stat. Here, start here.)

But.

Um.

I do have a book that needs to be, um, written. That's probably a crucial step in this whole I'm-a-professional-writer-and-should-actually-write thing.

And I love this story, and want to write it. But I'm hesitating for lots of stupid reasons.

But....I also still want the Lush stuff.

So! New goal! If I write 20k words by the time I go home on Tuesday, I get to buy all the stuff in my Lush shopping cart.

That's a big jump in word count. I know. But I've been stagnant too long, and Lush stuff is expensive, and it deserves a big push.

So...can I do it??? I don't know! I honestly don't! I'm def setting myself a goal here that I don't know if I'll make--which is actually kinda exciting...
