Writing Progress - 2. 21.11

Happy Presidents Day everyone! If you're one of the lucky ones who has off (like my husband), I wish you a productive writing day. If you're like me and are stuck at the office, I feel your pain!

Today also happens to be my dad's birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Before I get to my goals for this week, I need to do a little explaining as to why there's only going to be two of them. My life has suddenly become more hectic than I can handle. Here's a glimpse at this past week if you don't believe me:

Monday - Got home from work at 9pm. Had dinner with husband.
Tuesday - Got home from work at 9:30 pm. Read for 15 minutes before falling asleep.
Wednesday - Woke up with very bad cold. Got done work at 8 pm (yes! early night!). Too tired to do anything.
Thursday - Done work at 6:30pm. Straight to writer's group. Edited WIP for 1 hour when I got home.
Friday - Worked until 7:30. Went to dinner with husband.
Saturday - worked until 4pm. Had to make dessert for dinner date that husband set up with another couple. Work out. Shower. Out to dinner (we are an hour late because I wanted to work out.)
Sunday - cleaning. grocery shopping. hair cut. Birthday dinner for dad. OH LOOK - it's 10pm and in-laws stop over. SERIOUSLY???? I was about to go to bed!

And now it's Monday again. And I'm exhausted from the lingering effects of that cold I mentioned. And work is only going to get worse this week.

Anyway, here are my goals.
  • Rewrite the final two chapters in my WIP.
  • Stop holding Across The Universe hostage. It's supposed to be on a book tour, but I've had it for a week and a half and I'm only halfway finished with it!
ANNOUNCEMENT: Don't forget to enter my Give It Forward contest! You could win a copy of The Sky is Everywhere, all while supporting an awesome author. Winner will be drawn later this week.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: Since I forgot there isn't any mail today, there probably won't be a recap of My So Called Life until later in the week.


  1. Ha...I always hold the books up since I'm in such a reading slump lately. I'm glad I don't have any more coming to me. No one else would get a chance to read them!

    I hope you can get those chapters rewritten! Good luck!

  2. Yeah, I had a week like that last week, too (and it's my son's birthday today, so it continues...).

    I finished Across the Universe a few days ago, if you need the "Cliff notes" version just to get you through!

  3. Wow! Busy woman! Hope you get your rewrites done!!

  4. Wow very nice your life and fantastic details shared in the post .great idea for writing . best your thought and amazing your this post.
