Wow. This recharge went by so fast. I think I am so busy these days time is flying by. So here is what I hoped to do/write this week:
Write/revise: Get at least another 500 words written on The Galileo Strategy. Do edits for Deadly Array because I have them and need to get them done.
Read/reread: Try to get through another chapter of this big fat tome.
Stretch: Check out print proofs for Love Inn and Ten Tips and the swag for the signings are due in soon as well. Have to cut up postcards and buy a tablecloth.
Self: Force myself into something healthy. Either food or exercise. It has to be done.
Connect: Have found some folks online that I would love to have on the show. Thinking about emailing…
Fun: Monday night, TV and to bed early. Tuesday, have a funeral to go to and spend time with my kids, Wednesday – Empire and American Idol night, Thursday, write like the wind. Friday, read. Yes, all that IS fun.
Here is what I managed to do:
Write/revise: I did get all the edits done for Deadly Array. Did NOT get any new writing done. We had two funerals (one I did not go to but was sad just the same) this past week and seriously? I didn’t have the energy or inclination. I have to be in a mindset to write. Just. No.
Read/reread: I am up to 155 in the book I am reading. It is not a drop in the bucket but I will persevere because it is a huge book and a good one.
Stretch: Finalized the print proof for Love Inn and trying to decide if I am happy with the print version of Ten Tips. It’s not bad…but the typography on the back could be better. I am running out of time to decide though, because the events start in March (yeah, now.)
Self: Hardly managed to get on the treadmill and really didn’t do well with diet. Well, my mindset was not really there I guess.
Connect: Have sent blog post questions to Patricia Neeley-Dorsey for an online interview…waiting to get back. She is a very popular Mississippi poet who has magnolia flowers for imagery that is just beautiful. I like what she can write.
Fun: I did manage to see some of the shows on Monday night and on Wednesday and Thursday I did watch AI and did a bit of tweeting about it all. So that was fun.
It has been a weird week all the way around. I am looking forward to a new week and happier times ahead. March promises to be a great month for me as an author, so there is much to do and much to look forward to. I intend to write more. I really do.
I want to thank the ladies who put together this awesome month of Writer Recharge. It has been fun- and I did get some stuff done.
