I always like to say stuff about my week before getting into goals. Today I’ve been really scattered, so this bit is going to be a mess.
I guess, the first thing that comes to mind is that it hasn’t been an easy week. There’s some life stuff (being a mom isn’t always easy) and some writing stuff (like the day I just stared at my computer and did nothing for three hours). It has made anxiety a big issue this week.
Not helping the anxiety is YELLOW. I need it a specific “size” and I’m thinking I’ll fall short (zero clue where to add). Not to mention it might not even be accepted where (publisher) I want to put it.
Friday we played ZOMBIE DICE for a quick (“Oh crap, we meant to start this this week?”) Family Game Night. Fun was had. The best part of my week? I’m super happy my town, not to mention my county, finally got a comic shop! I have the JEM OUTRAGEOUS ANNUAL and AVENGERS #0 on my reading pile waiting… Because writing first.
So, goals! So I can write. So I can comic after!
Rough Draft by Oct 21 I’m mostly on target. I’m 500 behind where I want to be. (Will try to catch up today.) Hoping I don’t fall too short. Got 3 beta readers lined up.

This Week: I’ll be visiting back WIPpeteers for visits first and foremost. I should finishing YELLOW’s rough (really hoping it is not too short), sending it to my Betas, updating the outline, and plotting the follow up. There’s no yoga Wednesday, but there’s also no school Friday, so I’ll be shifting Friday’s run to Wednesday, and if I’ll figure out Friday later. ALCHEMY should be 58% edited by next check-in.
