Well, it’s Monday again, but I’m very happy to be on Easter Break and actually slept in until 7:00 am.
Now that I’ve had my coffee, I’m sitting here contemplating my To Do list for the week:
- Make wordcount goal each day
- Finish report cards and the stack of work I brought home to grade
- Put fall/winter clothes away and bring down spring/summer clothes
- Do some spring yard clean-up
- Clean laundry room which has become repository of miscellaneous stuff
My To Do list is really far longer than that, but I’m afraid to look any further.
I thought this appropriate for the beginning of a fresh, new year, when we are all pondering hopes and goals for the coming months:
I’m aiming to finish two novels this year.
What adventure are you setting out on for this year that challenges your abilities and expectations?
It’s November, so that means it’s time for National Novel Writing Month.
30 days. 50,000 words. Lots of coffee.
I’ve been working hard, caught between editing Missing Magic, finishing Deeper Than Bone and Nano. And of course, since it’s Nano time, the darned plot bunnies have either been breeding fast, wanting to have their way with all the stories, or hiding and laughing.
Sigh. The writing life.
Busy is the operative word. Two weeks of school are done. The students and I are settling into the routine. Saturday was NJRW’s third special event with a great workshop by Mary Buckham. I’m taking some online workshops over at FF&P during the 60 Days to Pro event. Taking classes in September was probably not a bright idea, but I couldn’t pass on them. Free is a good thing. Squeeze in a little writing, editing and laundry and whatever time is left, well, that’s for sleep. Sleep is also a good thing.
