Yes. Slogging. Updating last week obviously didn’t happen.
I’ll be honest, last week was rough. Not because bad things happened, but I slipped into a pretty dark place mentally, and for a while I wasn’t sure how to find my way out.
Honestly, I’m not sure I have found my way out yet, but I think I can see the path.
I find it hard to be passionate about anything these days, and since I feel like I’ve been through an emotional roller coaster the last year (and I cry at the drop of a hat – I think I’ve cried more the past two months than I have since I was a teenager. Maybe more.) I keep wondering how much of it is grief (because Tabby was on my mind a lot the past week), and also wondering if I’m actually clinically depressed.
And I know if it’s grief, I just need time. Time to heal and time to find myself again. But it feels like I have no time, because someone always needs something from me, but if I ask for help, there’s always… complications.
In other news, I feel like I’m actually in the right state of mind for writing where Sachi’s at, mentally, in Catalyst. Because her life sucks.
- Clean off desk and get it usable. Once done, start working on organizing filing cabinet.
Not started yet. Will be started ASAP, because will soon need a room that can be shut off from the rest of the house at night to keep a cage for the chicken. Because I want/need my bathroom back. And sadly, yes, I think I have to clean the entire office to get the desk organized.
- Get at least one-third of the way through Catalyst (Undoing bk 1) revisions.
In progress. I need to actually calculate where, plot-wise, I need to be to hit 1/3 of the story. Because I have no clue. I’m just slowly chipping away at it, currently.
- 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.
Calendar done! The hitch with doing the map is that… I think I have to accomplish goal #1 to FIND the map.
