This week was a bit better for me, emotionally. I did almost break down to the poor vitamin lady at Sprouts as I was asking about supplements, and she was asking what I needed them for (feeling depressed, fatigued), and she gave me some advice and also told me not to worry yet. She was a very sweet lady who wasn’t judgmental at all that I was still on the verge of tears well over a month after losing a pet, and reminded me that depression IS a part of grief, and that it does just take time.
The best friend also read my blog post last week and ahem made sure I knew that need to be calling her when there’s actually a problem. So I’m going to do better about this.
I didn’t necessarily make a LOT of progress on my goals, but I made some, so I’m counting it as moving ahead :).
Also, sign-ups for February #WriteMotivation are open! Need a cheerful and realistic group of people to cheer you on, no matter how far ahead you get, or how far behind you might fall? Check it out!
And slightly unrelated: sign-ups for the 2014 A-Z Challenge (takes place in April) opened today! There’s already over 100 participants on the list, so you’ll want to get your name in soon! I’ll be blogging for it here, and the Ferrets are participating this year as well.
Clean off desk and get it usable.Once done, start working on organizing filing cabinet.
The filing cabinet is going to be waiting until next month, but the desk is officially clean! Well… it was clean. The office curtains are currently sitting on it, waiting to be hung up.
- Get at least one-third of the way through Catalyst (Undoing bk 1) revisions.
Not gonna happen. The revisions are at least started, so I just need to gain momentum, but there’s no way I’m going to be able to edit several chapters in the next 3-4 days. Not with errands to run.
- Outline first five chapters of Catalyst sequel, more if possible, and get character charts in order.
Not happening either.
- Finish world map for Undoing
and figure out the calendar.
Er… yeah, the map is still missing. So this goal is officially changing to “find the bloody map”.
You can see all the #WriteMotivation participants and their goals on the Roll Call.
