If you aren’t familiar with Round of Word in 80 days check out the link.

Here are my goals:

Write 5 days a week.

I went to bed early two nights so far this week, so I might not make 5 days this week. But, I did get a cold which lingers on with a cough so I needed the sleep and I get a free pass.

– Finish edits on Hockey Novel #4

Done the read aloud read through. Have to go through another round with Editor  from Serenity software. But first I am working on the book that precedes this one.

The preceding book was originally Corey’s story. And I wrote the entire novel. And then as I was working on edits, it came to me that Corey needed a woman with children. Complications Over Coffee was much better. But, I still like the heroine I had set up. So, she got a new hero and the book is getting a make-over for the new happy couple. I’m half done already, because a lot of it has been written.

– write Hockey Short Story #2 (possible)

Right after I release the above.

– Blog as per course from Kirsten Lamb on Blogging

So far, there are some video posts I have lined up. I need to get on the guest post thing. I’ve been nervous about putting myself out there or asking people to write for my rather unvisited blog.

Personal goals:

– Working social media during nap times as per We Are Not Alone

*Waving at all my twitter friends*. Except today, i was grumpy and wanted to be something other than Mom and writerlady and I said Fuck everything and I searched for crafts to do with paperback novels that are unusable.

– Flylady-type routines in the house to keep the house under control

The cold and now grumpiness killed my desire to clean the house. Monday I was tired. Today, I thought, who gives a rat’s behind. The children and husband are just going to mess it up again and they don’t even care if they live in hell.  Maybe tomorrow will be better on this front.

Thanks to my horrid cold, I didn’t get much done in the early part of this week.

  1. The fact that you bothered doing a check-in when under a nasty cold is alone a great accomplishment.
    Take of yourself, treat that cold. You can catch up later.
    Wishing you a quick recovery!

  2. I understand about the husband and kids not caring if they live in a disgusting pig pen.
    I’m far far far from being a neat freak, but I get more and more frustrated with anything I clean being treated like a dumping ground for any junk or mess they carelessly create.

    At least for NaNoWriMo I have my own writing nest set up, and they are guests when they come in, meaning they must clean their mess!

    • Amy,

      It’s exhausting to keep up. My husband will get in a mood where he wants everything spotless and then spend the whole day cleaning. Drives me batty.
      Good luck with NaNoWriMo.

  3. Writing around your everyday life is hard. Believe me, I know. Hope you feel better!
