Home of a mother, wife, writer

It’s been an uneventful week. And after last week, I don’t really have a problem with that. Tomorrow is the last day of school for my daughter. After 2 years of K-4, she’s moving on to Kindergarten. Last year I had been torn about our decision to keep her back, but seeing how much she’s blossomed this year, we feel it was definitely the right decision. Academically, she probably would have been fine. But, last year she would barely speak to any of the other students. Wouldn’t go to one of their centers if there was anyone else there. This year she’s actually playing with the other kids. And she’s made a lot of improvement with her speech and motor skills(was delayed in speech, fine, and gross motor skills). She’s still behind with her gross motor skills but has made improvements with everything. Anyways, I don’t really know what this will mean for my progress. Both kids will be here all day. But, at the same time, that means they might be able to keep each other occupied(when they aren’t fighting).  She’ll go back August 28 and will be at school all day for the first time.

Anyways, on to my progress for the last week. I posted on Sunday, but didn’t really get into what I’d gotten done for the week.

Slow Revenge – start reading through: I have started this. And as of today am through 25 of 30 chapters. Have quite a few notes taken. I’ve been doing 5 chapters a day, so should have it finished tomorrow. Will probably start working on rewrites on Monday.
Demons Rising: Set up in Scrivener: As I said in my post on Sunday, I finished this Thursday. And started writing it on Friday. Then, I was talked into joining JuNoWriMo. Okay, “talked into” may be a bit strong. I was simply asked if I was going to join it, and I decided to check it out then sign up. Have a goal of 2250 words each weekday and another 1000 on the weekends. If I can keep that up, I should have 50,000 by the end of the month. Right now I have 7914 words. I haven’t made my goal for today, and I may not as it’s all ready past 8 p.m. But, I will try.
Knit: Shimmer by Night bag: I’ve made a little bit of progress on this, but still not finished yet.
          Broken Rib Toque: Haven’t even started this. or rather picked it back up. I started it earlier in the year, when it was still cold, then set it aside to work on some other stuff.
Crochet: Hairpin Lace Skinny Scarf: Haven’t made much more progress on this. But, I was able to pick up some yarn I needed to finish another project over the weekend. So, on Tuesday I finished the Ruffled Skinny Scarf I’d been working on last month. 

I didn’t include reading goals on this week’s list(or the one for the rest of this month) since I’ve all ready surpassed that goal. But, I am still reading. I finished Paradise Damned by S.M. Reine yesterday and started reading Leigh Bardugo’s Siege and Storm. I’m all ready about 40% through it, even though I’ve been trying to be good and save the reading for when I’ve finished everything else on my to-do list.

My goals for next week:

  • Demons Rising: Write 12000 words
  • Slow Revenge: Finish reading through
  • Slow Revenge: Start rewrites
  • Guarding the Heart: Finish back stories
  • Knit: Finish Shimmer By Night Bag
  • Crochet: Finish Hairpin Lace Skinny Scarf
