I have a cold and really do not want to write. But I will. I must. I am too close to give up now. I mean really, who will tell the tale of my characters if I just crawl back into bed? Hmmm? Good thing Netflix is screwed up. I’m sure I would just binge what The Originals and dream of beignets and cafe au lait.

Let’s just get to the goals.

1. Start revisions of book 2 in my Dragonfly Mystery Series-
I’ve completed one read through. It needs lots of work. Goal is to revise/edit the first 100 pages- I think it’s safe to say this ain’t happening until later….
3. Plan one new short story- It’s a novel, still counts.
4. Edit/Revise Mystic Brew–  Done. I have a “real” critique meeting on Thursday. Let’s see what they think. It’s my first critique group any tips.
5. Finish plotting Book 3 in my Dragonfly Mystery Series I have an idea of what’s going to happen. This will be what I write for NaNoWriMo, so I have to do this in October- Done
6. Participate in NaNoWriMo and write 50,000 words- I’m at 29,735. I had two productive days making up for Sunday. I have plans this weekend so I want to keep my word count high for the next few days. Fingers crossed.   I need to be at 37,800 by Saturday morning. Yikes! Pass the Halloween candy.

7. Read 8 books that’s for the whole round 4.   I’m on track I’ve read 7. Working on book 8.
8. Be a good human and socialize online Goal- Barely. NaNo comes before socializing.
9. Be a good Baptist and join a Wednesday night group– Yeah, I’m think this may not happen
10. Finish my daughter’s bedroom The wall frame is up.

I hope you are feeling better than I am.

How are your goals this week?

  1. We had two colds in a week, each with separate symptoms.We usually escape waves like that, as homeschoolers, but a party at a local indoor waterpark (hot/humid/enclosed space makes a perfect petri dish), and a trip to a neighboring state gave us lots of exposure.

    Thankfully, we’re through it now. Good luck on NaNo – looks like you’re doing very well, count-wise,even sick.

    Hope you feel better by the time you read this. =)
