Life, ROW80, and WIPet Wednesday!
Yesterday, I finished buying school supplies for my kids. And in co-winky-dink-land, we also got the letter for my son’s middle school orientation. He’s so freaking excited about this. I’m just feeling old and bemoaning my baby boy getting so big. Though, this is more proof that the school year is fast approaching and life will be heading toward new routine! In other news, I keep my cell phone on my desk. So, I decided to put a picture of my desk as the wallpaper. You know, so I can sit at my desk and look at my desk and see my desk. It’s DESK-CEPTION!
I said I would fill 3 out of 4 bars and I did. Mostly due to lying skies (why are you so gray if you aren’t going to rain?), exercise was not met.
I also got back feedback. Everyone loves PMGCB and thinks it is strong. Yet there are things to fix. Lots to polish. Will I have it done by the 6th like my goal says? I’m trying.
You know what else I said I’d do? I said I’d give those pre-writing sheets a once over on Saturday. I went so far as to print them out and write notes and reorder it all. And on Sunday, I spent the morning doing the fixes in duplicate (in Word and in Evernote). In other words, I can start writing packets any time I want now! WOOT!
Plan for this week– I do not plan on doing a pre-writing packet. On a normal Wednesday I write. I will not write today. Don’t get me wrong, I will try to hit my minimums I set for myself (though exercise is hit or miss depending weather). But, once I hit it, I’ll likely be dropping it for the week. I want to use as much time as I can to make PMGCB pretty.
Don’t know what WIPpet Wednesday is? This is when WIPpeteers share a bit from a work in progress (or WIP) and use the date to decide how much to share. KL Schwengel runs the show. Find the linkie on her page to read other people’s work or join in.
WIPpet Math– It is the 31st day of the 7th month. Then, from page 31 I’ll share 7 sentences.
About this WIPpet– This is my YA Fantasy, code name FLAMES. This scene takes place after Issac was, once again, an- Well, Mason says it for both of us.
“Issac is an asshole,” I said without thinking.
“Wait- I thought I saw you talking to him!” Lasrina’s eyes grew wide and big. “You know him?”
“Not because I want to,” I said. “Just like I didn’t want to mar-” I caught myself before I finished the word.
