Hey guess what?
All that extra work I put in this week has paid off. I have some breathing room on this project. I can come in tomorrow for about 4 hours and complete the ads I need to build, send them off and then wait for approval. Not so difficult. The entire piece should be ready to go early on Wednesday.
So in other words, a few days more then I can start writing again.
It is always frustrating, for me at least, when I have to work on something else I have all these ideas about other projects. Whether it be beading projects when I am writing, or writing scenes that click into place when I have a crunch at work, it always seems that ideas pop up when they are the least expected.
So far this week I have some scenes in Dragon Masque just about finalized in my head, a few ways that I can rewrite some short stories, and some beading projects that I need to get on paper. Oh and that first novel that I completed? Well it has been on my bed this week as I read back through it, red pen in hand as I slash pages. Yep, it might be salvageable. We shall see.
I am thankful that I put in the extra hours this weekend, even though it cut into my time. This way I do not have to stress over the next week and stay late of an evening (which I have done on the past two projects). Except for dropping the last few ads, and some more photos, I can call this project finished.
I can now get back into the swing of writing and beading again. Might not be as much progress on the writing as I have had in the past but both are calling and I cannot resist either. I even moved my beading stash into the living room so that I can fiddle with the tiny little glass jewels whenever I want. I need to finish about 20 bookmarks which I shall work up as samplers of different beading techniques to get myself back into the swing of it.
So I think I can safely project some goals for this week.
1 flash piece for Shock Totem 1,000 words.
Edits on 1 short story (word count depends on story)
For this week, that should be enough.
Stories for Crossed Genres with artifacts and gadgets are due midnight tonight.
Thanks for reading everyone!
