The most exciting thing that has happened to me all week is that we got a POS (point of sale) system at the comic shop I work at. So far, I am far from awesome at it. I know one day I’ll rock it, just not right now. The second most exciting thing was while browsing Christmas village stuff I found a group of 3 hens that look like my hens. My husband bought them for me. In other words, it has been a dull week.
So, I’m going straight to goals…
#1) Finish and submit HALLMARK
According to my editing plan, I’m behind. I still have time. I can catch up. I am still going to try. Now as to why… The first draft is uglier than a rotting fish with pussy ulcers. The amount of work to get it into shape along with the tight deadline has been making it quite a chore to tackle. Again, I will state it is still doable and I am not giving up yet.
#2) Edit PET
Must finish HALLMARK first. On hold.
#3) Writing Business on Saturdays
Blog on Saturday: Obviously this is it.
Send 3 Submissions: Did it before writing this, so 3/3
#4) Take care of myself
Cardio 4 times a week – 3/4 – On Tuesday son was sent home early from school due to stomach distress. He’s better, but I needed to use my running time to deal with that.
Yoga 2 times a week – 2/2 – On October 6th was the yoga class’s 3 year anniversary!
Toning/Strengthening Videos 6 times a week – 5/6 – I did one round of this video after yoga and runs
Drink at least 2 sports bottle of water a day – Yes, for the most part
Vitamins daily- 50% success rate – Would have been higher but I missed a couple afternoon doses.
#5) Stay caught up on comics
No. I ended up falling behind last week with an impromptu visit from my parents. So, after getting my pull this week, I ended up with 20 comics to read. I have 7 to go. I’m hoping to say differently next week.
Next week promises to be just as “exciting.” Which, hopefully, means I can get back on track with HALLMARK and with comic reading. In fact, even though I only scheduled the queries and this blog post for today, I think I’ll put in some extra time on HALLMARK right now.
Did you like my line, “The first draft is uglier than a rotting fish with pussy ulcers?” How would you finish that sentence? Are your ugly first drafts Cinderellas in the end or one of her step-sisters?
