So, new month, new goals, and a few changes.
February was a rough month all around for people. I was just busy. The busy isn’t a bad thing, don’t get me wrong. I prefer being busy. I’m more productive the more I have to do. It’s more that, when I’m busy, I feel less social. Others had it far worse, and I feel like I neglected people a lot in trying to juggle it all. So if you’re feeling ignored or neglected, *HUGS* first, and I’m sorry. Please poke me and say hi when you have a few minutes to chat, I have time for you.
And I’m not the only one busy, lately. Becca and KT are too, so we’re pausing OWM for this month (and possibly April as well) to give us all time to catch up. We’ll reevaluate it once we feel we have time to deal with it. I enjoy writing the stories and reading what they write, though, so don’t worry. Busy or not, I’m sure we’ll find a way to make it work. It just might mean a revised posting schedule or something. We’re working on it.
Meanwhile, March’s goals.
1. Read at least 5 published books. Stretch goal: 10 (My poor reading time is mostly eaten by internship things, and I’ve had trouble finishing books lately.) Still reading Grasshopper Jungle for the LGBT challenge, but I’ve mostly switched to Burning Obscura, it’s at least more clearly written. The style on Grasshopper Jungle is close to making it a DNF, but I want to finish it anyway. I’m half done. We’ll see.
2. Count how many partials/finished MS are read for my internship. (No stretch goal for this one, it relies too much on factors outside my control.)
3. Finish a chapter of an in progress novel.
I didn’t put walking on there anymore. There’s no point, I walk to work all the time. Same with Crits. I don’t anticipate having any to do this month, though that’s always subject to change if anyone has anything and asks. I CAN make room if you want.
