Well, Monday flew right by me and I forgot to post, but that’s because I was accomplishing things!
… sort of. I accomplished staying warm (heated mattress pads are your friend), keeping the chickens supplied with water instead of ice, and gasp I actually worked on Catalyst.
- Clean off desk and get it usable. Once done, start working on organizing filing cabinet.
Not started yet, but will be today.
- Get at least one-third of the way through Catalyst (Undoing bk 1) revisions.
Started. I had notes from someone who beta-read a hard copy for me, so I’ve been punching them all into the computer. Found a 68-word sentence doing this. Oops.
- Outline first five chapters of Catalyst sequel, more if possible, and get character charts in order.
No progress yet.
- Finish world map for Undoing and figure out the calendar.
No progress yet.

I got a heated mattress pad for Christmas. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER.
Congrats on your progress! *waves pompoms* Good luck; I’m sure you’ll do great this month!

Haha, glad you get to experience the bliss, especially during this cold snap!

A heated mattress pad sound divine with the cold weather. Although, my hubby is a heater in bed so I’ll settle with using him. 😉
Good start to the month. You can do it! Although, I’d procrastinate on the desk part because cleaning, bleh.
Rebekah LoperJanuary 8, 2014 - 9:51 am ·
Hubby and I both tend to run on the slightly cold side, so we crank up the mattress pad and snuggle together, and everything is perfect! 😀

I think keeping yourself warm and your animals alive is plenty enough for week one. But, look. You’ve done more! *tosses cookie* Good job on your progress thus far! You got this!

Just assume that organizing your file cabinet will take about ten times longer than you anticipate.
Because that’s what makes file cabinets evil.
Rebekah LoperJanuary 8, 2014 - 9:56 am ·
It doesn’t help that I haven’t actually filed anything in *gulp* three years.
heylookawriterfellowJanuary 8, 2014 - 9:57 am ·
Um. Then plan for twenty times longer.
Rebekah LoperJanuary 8, 2014 - 9:59 am ·
*melts into a puddle of despair*
heylookawriterfellowJanuary 8, 2014 - 10:03 am ·
No, no. Don’t despair! I’ll check up on you some time in April. 😉

The month is still young! You’re on your way to making progress…starting is the biggest hurdle! Keep warm!

i just have to say…68 word sentence? is that a record? Wow.
Rebekah LoperJanuary 10, 2014 - 8:32 am ·
*blushes and hides and whispers* No… no that is not a record. I think my personal best is 90-something words in a sentence.
valerierlawsonJanuary 10, 2014 - 8:54 am ·
well that takes its own special talent, doesn’t it?
Rebekah LoperJanuary 10, 2014 - 9:32 am ·
Let’s just say there’s a reason all my stories end up 2-3x the length I think they’ll be before I start.

Progress is progress! And staying warm is the only way to make your fingers type, so it sounds like you have your priorities straight!
Good luck for the rest of the month!
