I managed to keep up my pace from earlier in the week, and stayed pretty well ahead. In fact, I got through edits on Flames of Redemption Thursday night with just a few little things to search through for on Friday.
Yesterday, we had my niece’s birthday party. It went well. I expected some comments since it was the first time in about 8 years my family had seen me without glasses. NOT ONE WORD. I guess my family isn’t quite as observant as I gave them credit for. After the party, we had Christmas with my dad and stepmom. He’d already called the other week to see what gift cards we wanted. Now, I have money to spend at Amazon. Still debating between getting the new Kindle touch(touchscreen would be nice for reading through my WiPs for editing) or just buying a bunch of books(since I already have about 80 on my to read list).
Flames of Redemption: Finish edits– As I said, DONE! Added about 850 words to it during this round of edits. I still have to proofread and line up the cover. At Her Hands – Character Work– DONE!! Will be fleshing out the plot this next week. Read: Falling for Autumn(Heather Topham Wood), Vanilla on Top(C.J. Ellisson), & Violet Midnight(Allie Burke)– finished all of these. I didn’t really feel too connected with the characters in Violet Midnight, but overall I enjoyed it. Then, I read Rise of Orion(Rachel O’Laughlin) and…dead. I’m dead after reading it. The next morning, I was still reeling. Crochet: Finish Owl Crochet: Flower Hot Pad– finished this Saturday morning. Messed up a bit. The petals are supposed to be folded over, and when I was doing the edging one came unfolded and I didn’t realize it.
I love being able to cross everything off the list!
Next week’s goals:
- Flames of Redemption – line up cover art
- At Her Hands – finish outline
- Read: In the Land of the Long White Cloud(Sarah Lark) & Catching Jordan(Miranda Kenneally)
- Knit: Polarspun Baby Hat
