Now that everything is normal, I’ve become boring! I fixed my son’s dresser to work until I can give him my current dresser (I get a new dresser when my father-in-law either rents out or sells his house). My daughter brought home a Scholastic order form and I spotted my friend’s name, Leigh Dragoon, in it. I made, my hamster, Duke a new platform to reach his wheel. And my husband is off today to grab our pull list from the comic shop,
I’m made of boring. I guess that’s why I got so much done this week.
I made progress on all my reading materials, but didn’t finish anything up. On ALCHEMY, I finished not only world building hole filling, but a second draft of chapter 5. I also took a couple of days to work on my slush stuff. I sent off two short stories and a handful of query letters. I also started plotting my next WIP (YELLOW). Though I think I need to move some stuff around, I have it mostly done. I visited 7 blogs related to writing communities. That means I have ceased sucking! (Seriously, not visiting people makes me feel like a bad person.) I’ve added after dinner walks and that means I do a minimum of 30 minutes exercise every day of the week. Healthy! Healthy! Healthy!
So, this week, the kids have off Monday. I do plan to write Monday, but not as much as usual. I hope to finish reading GOTHAM ACADEMY (vol 1), reading COOKIES AND SCREAM, organizing notes for ALCHEMY chapter 6, filling in more ALCHEMY world holes, and starting draft 2 of chapter 6 of ALCHEMY.
Have you seen a friend’s work in a place that delighted you?
What’s your boring like? Love it or hate it?
Before I go I want to mention I’ll be part of an event. Ten Authors, Ten Days hosted by A. B. Funkhauser at her website.
