Goodness, it’s been a week. Camp NaNo, the A-Z Challenge, a baby shower for a friend, garden stuff (that I’m sooooooo behind on), car stuff…
At least I’ve already done my taxes.
I haven’t even made it around to this month’s #WriteMotivation list yet. screams and tears out hair
Birthday season starts this week, too.
What is birthday season, you ask?
April 10 – Grandpa
April 15 – Grandma
May 26 – Mom
May 30 – Me
June 13 – Sister
That is birthday season. By June 13th, we are all very very very very very tired of cake.
I would like to take a moment to share a few gems I’ve found on the A-Z Challenge, though!
StrangePegs (Andrew Leon) is doing Abandoned Places as his A-Z theme, and that was pretty much an instant follow for me. I love abandoned places, and dreaming about the people who would have once lived there, and what they felt when they had to leave.
Be careful – you’ll gain weight just LOOKING at Hungry Enough to Eat Six‘s (Nan Mock) A-Z Challenge posts. Nan’s theme is pies. And really, that’s all you need to know. Just go read (and make), and then go exercise afterward.
Anna Tan at Deeply Shallow is doing short fiction with a different mythological creature each day – but it’s a serial fiction, so they’re all connected. I’ll admit that I’m behind on reading it, but the first one was excellent, so I have no doubt the continuing stories are just as good!
I also found another blogger who’s doing worldbuilding as her A-Z theme – Susan Gourley!
- Camp NaNoWriMo
Goal: 40 hours of editing on Catalyst, plus 20,000 new words written.I have edited for 4.17 hours so far, and added 1,048 words. I’m going to have to double up quite a bit the last half of the month, because I’ve got a lot going on last week and this week.
- A-Z Challenge
N-Z posts written by April 15th.
Visit at least 5 new blogs each day, and comment on at least 3 new blogs each day.I’ve written and scheduled N and O so far, and then got too busy with Camp NaNo and baby showers for friends, etc. etc. so I’m really going to need to crack these out this next week! I fell behind on new blogs yesterday, since I was gone for half the day, but I’d stayed caught up before that!
- Pre-write May’s ‘feature’ blog posts, and start planning for June.Hah. I’m funny.
- Filing cabinet.
This goal is not coming off my #writemotivation list until I complete it. I am determined.This goal may be prioritized very quickly, because we need to find the papers about the stocks. (I’d completely forgotten hubby’s company GAVE them stocks a year or so ago.)
Finish reading Numb by John W. Otte for the CSFF Tour.
Make progress on The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson.
Read another book, or several…Hahahahaha. Frick. I *have* to finish reading Numb soon.
And I think that’s all I really have to say today!
Well, except that I finally saw Frozen a couple of weeks ago, yay!
I liked it, but I wasn’t as enthused with a certain song that the public has gone nuts over. It was a good song… I just didn’t think it was amazing.
What I really loved, though, was Do you wanna build a snowman?
