Sunday Summary: Finishing

Again I’m writing my Sunday post on Saturday. This time because 1) I’ve gotten everything else done for the week, and 2) Tonight is the fire department’s awards banquet. So, we’ll be at that all night, and I imagine tomorrow I may be nursing a slight hangover(it only takes me 2-3 drinks to get drunk, so this doesn’t take much). So, I may not feel like doing much tomorrow.

This has been a very good week. My goal this month(and really this round) has been to finish things. Or at least get them closer to finished. Toward that, this week has been a success.

  • Duty to Protect(formerly Slow Revenge): Publish – Available on Amazon, BN, Kobo, and iBooks
  • Flames of Redemption: Finish revisions finished these Thursday night. Sent the new draft to my kindle so I can do another read through then I’ll do another round of revisions, making sure all the scenes mesh and fit. Then, probably one more to fix my grammar/style issues before I send it off to my CP.
  • The Choice: Read through – Finished this on Thursday as well. Some news scenes to add, fleshing it out. Then it will probably go through two more rounds before sending it off as well.
  • Short Story: 1/2 hour a day – didn’t work on this Monday or Tuesday. Did get time in on it Wednesday-Friday though. I wrote 899 words on it. It’s sitting at 8888 words(I find that massively funny). I only have a few more scenes to go before I think I can end it. Still not sure what I’m going to do with it once it’s done. Thinking of either putting it up on a page here, or posting in installments for my Fiction Friday posts.
  • Read: Riding Desire set – Done. While Nice Girls Don’t Ride is still my favorite out of them, there were a few others I really enjoyed and have found a few new authors to check out
  • Knit: Imp cloth Finished this Thursday too. Must be something about that day. 🙂


  • Started working on the Hello Kitty hat. I have the body & earflaps finished now. just have to do the face, ears, bow, and braids. Might still have it done by the end of the month.

For next week, I want to:

  • Flames of Redemption – another read through
  • The Choice – 1st round of revisions
  • Short Story – finish(I hope)
  • Read – Solving For Ex(LeighAnn Kopans) & Dark Lover(J.R. Ward)
  • Crochet – Hello Kitty Hat

    You are smokin’ those goals of yours! Congrats! And Dark Lover..omg I LOVE that book. Wrath, god, he is just awesome! The first three, actually, I have loved. (And I found the fourth in paperback at the library during the used book sale and am hoping to get to that soon.) Good luck this week on your goals and I be will starting the rest of SS tmw! (My goal is to get it to you by Friday, god willing. I think I can do this so long as I don’t get strep again. LOL). Have a great week and good luck on your goals!

    • Thanks! And squee! I’m excited to see what you think of the rest of it. Although I was reading through it the other day and saw a spot I’d forgotten to fill in my place marker of [xx](and I’d searched through it for that). It was for a name I couldn’t remember. But, oops. 🙂

  2. You’re doing awesome with your goals and getting so much done. You have such discipline when it comes to editing. I envy that quite a bit. I hope things continue to go well for you. 🙂
