1. Get a job.-Put in a bunch more applications last week. So far, no dice. Alas.
2. Keep trying on my writing plan-These races are helping a LOT! As of last night when I called it a night, I’d written over 10k since last Wednesday!! Would have more, but was busy Sunday, and then went out to eat, got back and despite downing large amounts of sugar and caffeine, the food coma won.
3. Keep up on crits.-Did wonderful about this this month. I’m caught up on everything EXCEPT KT’s, but that doesn’t have any real deadline on it, because even once I’m done, she’s waiting on her wonderful agent’s feedback too. Plus, I doubt she’ll have time at this point to do these changes until after the baby’s born, so I’m just poking at it slowly and carefully. (Poor KT, she always gets the slow end of my work. But then again, it’s very much detail work, whereas most of the other crits I’ve been doing lately I can just take on my Kindle and read in bed)
This last week was pretty nice, actually. I finally got past the sticky part of the WIP, and the words just started flowing. Tried Turkish food, that was pretty awesome, even if mine did have a bit too much yogurt sauce on the dumplings. They were really awesome, it makes me want to learn how to make them so I can eat them all the time, and with different sauces and such.
Far as the move, clothing is all sorted, folded, washed, and hung, except for things that I need hangers for, and the things I need to run through a tumble cycle with one of those dry cleaning dryer bags. Towels are all washed (we have a small washer, so it was seriously 4 loads worth of bath towels) and folded. Still sorting stuffed animals. I’m going to send a box full of them to one of my buddies back in San Antonio for her little girl (who I utterly adore, and who’s so cute, because she doesn’t get why she hasn’t seen us in months! So sometimes they get in the car, and she’ll ask her mom if they can go see us!! She’s three, and such a darling. I would move the galaxy for that child, if I could)
I’m still figuring out where I can shove more shelves. I’m pondering lining all the walls with shelves, for books. We have so many! I need to go through again and be utterly merciless. I have an entire shelf of TBR. But it’s so, so much easier to just read on my kindle… so I might just add them all to my goodreads list, then take them to the local used book store, and just get them in digital form when the mood strikes to read them. There’s a fair chunk of my keeper fiction shelf that I can probably get digital too, and a lot of those I doubt I’ll encounter the authors to get signed or anything. Some of them, sure, but probably not the majority. Though there are a few, like the first scifi novel I ever read, etc, that are automatic keepers no matter what.
Anyway… Back to writing with me! Whoot!!
