I just got back from school supply shopping for my spawns. And, I don’t know about you, but for me there’s a weird phenomenon that tends to happen. Every year there is a “unicorn” item. It seems logical enough to exist, but finding it actually is impossible. This year’s? A yellow folder.
Not one yellow folder of any kind (let along the mythical two pockets, no prongs, yellow folder which I needed) was to be found! In the kind we bought there was red (needed), blue (needed), purple (needed), orange (didn’t need), and green (didn’t need). There were other types that came in designs (none with yellow or mostly yellow or I would have done that). Not in the premium, high gloss or plastic ones. Not. A. Single. Yellow. Folder.
In the end, we bought orange. Figured it was close enough and if a wild yellow folder appears, we’ll capture it.
Wednesday, we go shoe shopping to continue our gathering fun.
But, you’re not here for my mommy woes. You’re most likely here for my writing goal progress.
I wanted to get a lot done this past week, but I told myself I only had to do two things for sure. Those two things? I had to get PLANET’s (then) current edit pass done and write some guest blogs. Totally did that!
Did I get to any of my “I wants” last week? Nope. Did I sit on my butt doing nothing? Well, only on Tuesday. We drove out to the country side, to my father-in-law’s house for a cookout. Family time always wins. Aside from that, I was working on stuff (like checking proofs) for SUNLESS. I was also working on arrangements for the blog posts I wrote.
I also finished another side read EVER AFTER HIGH STORYBOOK OF LEGENDS. I probably did exercise five days this week, but it was not at the park. My husband needed our car to help his leg heal.
Social writing group commitments fell by the wayside again. I didn’t read any of my main reading material.
This week, along with school stuff collecting, comics, and an appointment at the doctor for me… I need to tackle PLANET’s next edit pass (start to finish). And I should tackle at least 3 world building items from ALCHEMY.
If there’s time (and I doubt there will be), I’d like to fill in all of ALCHEMY’s world building holes. I’d also like to write a paranormal short story. I’d like to get the inkling for YELLOW down as I’m pretty sure I have an outline in my head already.
Any “school supplies” you are going to grab up for yourself?
If you could get some extra time (time travel style), what would you use it for?
P.S.- Anyone concerned about my husband’s leg should know it is almost better. He’s going to the doctor for another appointment tomorrow. They might extend the antibiotics, but it is so much smaller than it was when it got bad.
