A New Month

We are almost a quarter through a new year. Can you believe it? Amazing. I really feel like I'm so behind. I know I always say this but, didn't we just have Christmas? Come on now! I'm back in the coffee business. My mom sent me her French Press and I have coffee in the morning. Yay! You have no idea how loopy I've been for lack of coffee.

The first three days this month were great. Writing new material, designed two new dolls for commissions and got them started, trying to keep abreast of doing more reading for the month, and started sewing a blouse for me. I also rearranged all my writing into folders. Main folders for short stories kids, short stories adult, screenplays, long books kids, long books adults and within those folders a folder for each story and the different files under those stories.  My document page looks so nice and neat now and I'll be able to keep track of different drafts and edits for each story. Yes, I'm still a crazy lady and have signed up to do Camp NaNoWrimo for the month. My goal is 30,000 words for Map Hunter II.

I wasn't going to write down which projects I will attempt this month because it usually changes and I get other things done. So I guess I'll give it a go for this month.

  • Finish Bless This House quilt top
  • Finish my summer blouse
  • Finish three commissions
  • Read three books
  • Get through edit five of Map Hunter book I
  • Rough draft of Map Hunter book II
  • new pieces for an art show the end of the month
  • Finish my second pair of socks

Yes, but this is me. The commissions will most definitely get done. You know, those pesky things called bills just keep coming in. I'm also getting things prepped to start a writing website. I'll talk more about that in the near future. But you've seen the list and you can ping me and make a comment if I slack off.

I know, this semester has been the fastest of my college career yet! Though it feels like I say that *every* year lol.

Good luck with reaching 30k for your book! Camp NaNoWriMo is always fun; it's less intense than the actual NaNoWriMo in November, but still demands productivity!

Good luck with all your goals. :) Keep us updated!

Thanks Wendy Lu 2. Camp NaNo is less intense but having trouble keeping up because of things that keep me afloat. Maybe I'll be able to catch up in the next week. Good luck with the rest of the semester.

Yep, I think it's finally here. Had the first huge spring storm early this morning. Woke me up. Thunder, lightning, heavy rains, and hig...
