This week has included just about everything except writing of any sort, it seems. Overtime at work, wedding planning (the cake and rings are now ordered), taking my dog to the vet (for which we’re still awaiting results of blood work – should get that Monday) and not enough sleep. Last night I went to sleep at 8PM and didn’t wake up until 7:50AM this morning. I needed that long sleep so badly, and felt so much better today. But it meant I got absolutely nothing done. And now that I have a night to myself, and energy, I’m not sure what to work on. I feel a bit scattered as I type this. I could work on How to Think Sideways. I could try to catch up on my critiques (I have 3 submission rounds for which I haven’t even looked at my critiques yet…that’s 3 months worth, 6 total.) I could work on the final phase of my Secret Project. I’m not sure if I feel like working on any of that. I think I’m going to try to get through 2 of my critiques…that might be good since I’m up to submit again next week. And I’ll read through some of the HTTS lessons (though I may not do the exercises that go along with them.) Or maybe I’ll do something else entirely.
As a side note (and I’m not being paid to say this) if you want to take How to Think Sideways, you should sign up now. Holly Lisle added a ton of new material to the course, and at midnight tomorrow (April 30) the price is going up $150. Even though I’ve been procrastinating a lot and am ridiculously behind, it’s a wonderful class. My procrastination is all my own reasons, and has nothing to do with the quality of the lessons. It’s not a cheap course, but if you can afford $25 a month for 12 months, I highly recommend it.
And now, off to do…….something. But first, I have to feed the dogs. Doggies always come first. 🙂
