OK, where was I now? I HATE being sick. It throws a wrench into everything, not just writing, but school for my son, and the housework… I am so far behind with everything it’s just insane!
ROW 80–OK, I have to get back on track with this. It’s not to late for me to still accomplish my original goals here! I just have to get cracking. I think this time, I may have built in a little TOO much cushion time. I mean, seriously… I should not have been able to be so lazy this time around as I have been. So basically, I have to spend the rest of the week editing and reworking my short story one last time. I hope. I haven’t decided whether or not I want to send it for another round of critiques. Really, I am sick of seeing it at this point, so maybe I’ll just have the husband look at it. He’s good about telling me if there is a problem.
After this weekend, I am going to have to decide if I want to write another short for a certain quarterly science fiction contest, or if I want to really get rolling on my novel. Or both… It should be possible to work on both. And I need to set up a schedule and a plan.
Yesterday I came up with at least three story ideas while I was doing housework, but I didn’t write any of them down… I don’t know when I’m going to learn!
