After being behind, it feels really good to be ahead. In fact, I’m started to write this up on Saturday. And I even got through most of today’s goals yesterday. Even though it started snowing Wednesday, it was still a pretty good week. I’ve written over 21,000 words for the week and have just about everything crossed off the week’s to-do list.
This seems to be one of the rare weekends where we don’t have any plans. We did meet some of the people from the motorcycle group my husband belongs to(they’re all firefighters) Friday night for dinner. A lot of fun and laughing. Found out Saturday morning that my cousin’s 2nd baby girl was born Friday night too. And my best friend’s 2nd child is due like any day now.
As for this week’s progress:
Flames of Restoration: Add ~12500 words(total: 27500 words)– added 12427 this week. Total is at 12553. Moving right along on this. Will be raising this goal by another 500 words/day Stained Blood: Add ~5000 words(total: 35000 words)– added 4844 words this week. Total is at 35120. Things are getting interesting here. Flames of Renewal: Finish Round 1 Revisions– done. Will be reorganizing chapters then doing a second read through Hunter Family series: Character Work– this is done too. Outlining this week. Planning to start writing this as soon as I finish Flames of Restoration Into the Sun: Add at least 250 words– Added 324 words to this Saturday morning. May finally have a direction for this. Just Add Moonlight: Add at least 250 words– added about 478 words to this Saturday morning. Have a direction for this, too. Now, my biggest challenge will be keeping it under 1000 words. Blog: Q-V posts– I had all these drafted by Tuesday, and all went up as scheduled. I also got W & X drafted Saturday morning. Read: Thankless in Death(J.D. Robb), The Girl of Fire and Thorns(Rae Carson),Fire in the Woods(Jennifer M. Eaton) , & Sweet Southern Sorrow(Tessa Teevan)– Real all but Fire in the Woods. I started it, but just couldn’t get into it, so set it aside. Also read Where Their Hearts Collide(Zoe York). And read Against the Fire(Kat Martin) yesterday. Really enjoyed this one too. This is the last book on my list for the month, so now I’ll start working through my free books(both on kindle & ones MIL gave me). And I’ve finished listening to Shiver(Maggie Stiefvater) and Talon(Julie Kagawa). Loved both of these. Listening to A Thousand Pieces of You(Claudia Gray) now. Enjoying it so far.
- Knit: Simple Cable Scarf – Finish – Finished this yesterday as well. It is very long, and the sides curl in, but it’s done.
