BINGE ~ Wikipedia defines binge as : any behavior indulged to excess.

Well, that puts me on a writing binge this past week.

I plan to keep it up this week until I reach my goal.

I have my eye drops, caffeine, and chocolate at the ready.

I'm pushing myself to see what I am capable of doing. It's amazing to find out your limits and just what you can ACCOMPLISH ~ which is another great word that means to: achieve or complete successfully. I really like that word.

Are you on a writing or reading binge this week? Maybe a cleaning binge? Chocolate? Name your binge.

What are you accomplishing this week?

Between you, me and the gatepost,


On a side note ~ Whoa, didn't see that coming on Downton Abbey last night.

Ha! I'm on alot of "binges" this week--LOL!

Writing, reading, office cleaning, scrapbook organizing, and whatever else I can fit in.

Go, Lori, go! :)

When I watched it with the Brits, I so wanted to post something on fb, but I knew no one else had seen it yet. I think I boo-hooed for a few days. :)

Victoria Lindstrom said...

I've been on a busy binge, I guess you'd say. Lots of writing, but also lots of other writing-related stuff. In regards to Downton Abbey: Say it ain't so...not, Sybil! Have a great week, Loree!

Hi Loree, I'm definately on a chocolate and and writing binge. :-) I am so close to having a MS ready for multiple querying. But its not there yet. And I rarely get blind-sided by TV shows, but I think it happened last night.

Right now a writing binge sounds delicious. :) Enjoy! Praying you accomplish much today.

Brandi Boddie said...

I'm always on a chocolate binge ;-)
This week, I'm trying to get through some novels and to make progress on a bit of writing that had to take a backseat over the last couple months.

Ruth Schiffmann said...

I've been on a writing binge as well. Exciting, isn't it?!! (Mine goes hand in hand with an M&M's binge ;)

Hoping you ACCOMPLISH all that you set out to!

Tracy Krauss said...

Hooray for writing binges! They are a lot better for you than chocolate binges...

Sandra Orchard said...

Writing and reading. My two favorite past times.

Loree Huebner said...

Cindy: You are on a lot of binges! Don't wear yourself out. Glad to see you here!

Jess: It was a total shock. Very dramatic! I felt like I was right there...helpless.I'm going to watch it again tonight.

Victoria: Busy binge...I like that. On Downton...it's sadly so. *sob*

Gwen: Chocolate and writing just go together! I wish you the best on your MS & happy querying!

Melanie: Thanks for stopping by! I enjoyed your Germany pictures. So awesome. Keep in touch!

Brandi: The chocolate should help get you back in the writing swing. Doctors should prescribe it! haha...

Ruth: It is exciting! M & M's are one of the best binges around! I might have to go out and get some now. Thanks for stopping by!

Tracy: So nice to see you. I second your ~ Hooray for writing binges!

Sandra: They are mine to, Sandra...and chocolate...ha!

Thanks for stopping in everyone. Love reading your comments!

I am on a reading binge because my book is due back at the library tomorrow!

I have also been on a spending slurge on a couple of big ticket items - my credit card is at its limit for the first time in forever and it's 3 weeks to payday. Oh dear.

I'm not sure which Downton episode you are up to there, but here we just had the Christmas special and the twist was enough to make me want to give up watching it in the future.

I'm on a "finish the final pages of my website" binge. And I can't wait to be done! Really loving that word "accomplish"! Way to go on your writing binge! Have a blessed week~

Anne Love said...

Hi Loree,
I was on a clean my office cubby binge yesterday at work. A trash can full and 3 armloads to the shredder.

I was on a home-cooked meals binge this weekend when my college-aged daughter brought a friend for the weekend. It was their one request--home cooked meals. :)

I'm binging on Julie Lessman's An Undaunted Hope right now.

Binging on Mumford & Sons, coffee, warm blankets by the fire.

I hope to binge on writing this afternoon as winter returns to Indiana!

Karen Lange said...

Just trying to get past some commitments then hoping to get on a mini writing binge this week. Someday perhaps we'll find a way to binge on chocolate with no calories...

Congrats on your progress!

Loree Huebner said...

Charlotte: Those spending binges can be dangerous. Especially with all the winter sales now. The DA episode I was referring to is about the 3rd episode (I think) into season 3. I won't spoil it...I felt so helpless, so sad.

Maria: Thanks for stopping in! I can't wait to visit your new home! Should be just awesome!

Anne: You are on several binges! Over here in the NW corner of the state, winter is supposed to drop by later today, with temps back into the teens tomorrow.

Karen: A calorie free chocolate binge would be perfect. No such happiness for us writers though. Hope you get in your mini writing binge!

Thanks for dropping by! Your comments mean so much!

I hesitate to say this, but it's true: Pinterest binge!

I fought joining that site, but finally signed up. I like it better than Facebook or Twitter.
