This was another one of those weeks where it felt pretty busy/hectic, but I don’t really remember specifically what happened.
We had a lot of visitors and things going on around the house. That’s why it felt busy. I didn’t have much time for writing due to this, but progress is not always measured in word count
On Sunday, both of my parents were at the house for different reasons: my mom to help us with some gardening, and my dad to hang out with his grandson and watch some football.
Then, a friend of ours came into town to stay with us for a couple of nights and meet her not-blood-related nephew, which was cool.
Jessie came over Tuesday night for dinner — also cool. Or was it Wednesday? I don’t know, and it doesn’t matter much. You see where I’m going with this.
I wrote a negligible amount this week in the random spots where I could, but I haven’t bothered counting it up yet. It’s probably a few hundred words.
However, I managed to achieve one of my goals from last week. I implemented my editor’s suggested revisions on the first of my Mythology stories. I basically agreed with everything she said, so I told her as much, and we agreed that she would revise the entire series. I sent her the first six stories last night (including the newly revised first story).
So that piece is officially moving. I’ve held back a lot to this point about this series and what I’m doing with it, because I’d like to have everything lined up before announcing anything.
There’s still one more part I want to confirm before the official official announcement. But… I’ll be publishing this series soon!
I’m pretty excited for that, but more details to come.
More Business… or Busy-ness
We have a busy weekend, too. We’re visiting with friends and family tonight, and then going to a friend’s wedding tomorrow night!
Fun stuff. I took this afternoon off so we didn’t have to drive through rush hour. That also means that when we arrive at our destination, I’ll probably have a couple hours to get some more writing done.
Goals for 11/2
- Finish the first drafts of my Mythology series
- Get my final piece of this series moving
- Find more time for writing — aim for 2,000 words
