Today’s Sunday update is coming to you a bit late in the day, I know. I meant to get it up sooner, but things got a bit busier than I’d expected. But, more on that later.
For now, let’s take a look at how last week’s goals went.
- Rewrite the problem scene in C&C.
- Revise 5 chapters of V&L.
- Start on the new Recipe Review post.
Once again, I accomplished about half of what I aimed for. I didn’t get to work on that C&C scene, so that’ll be going back onto this week’s list.
I did, however, get three chapters of V&L revised, and I’m really happy with how those revisions turned out. I fixed a little problem that’s been nagging at me, and I’m ever closer to being finished this round of edits. All in all, I’d say the revisions are going well.
I also got a pretty good start on that recipe review. The photos have been taken, and I jotted out what I want to say about it. If all goes according to plan, it’ll be ready for posting within two weeks.
That brings me to this week’s goals. I’m carrying over a couple of things, but also adding in something new…
- Revise three chapters of V&L
- Rewrite that C&C scene
- Edit the Recipe review photos
- Start at least one character sketch for NaNoWriMo
- Start the second piece of my Halloween costume
Most of those are pretty self-explanatory. The V&L, C&C and Recipe review goals are all carry-overs from last week, and the character sketch is a follow-up to the planning that I did a couple of weeks ago. November’s going to be here before I know it, and I’m not feeling at all ready for it.
But do you know what else is going to be here before I know it? Halloween.
I know what I want to be this year, and I’ve already started buying the things I need to make it happen. I hope. I’m building this year’s costume from scratch, so things may not turn out quite how I’m planning.
I did manage to pull the first piece of it together this weekend, though. It involved stabbing my fingertips plenty of times and, somehow, snapping a sewing needle in half (both of which are pretty good reasons why I’m a writer, not a seamstress), but I managed it! The second piece is a bit more complicated, though, so we’ll see how that goes.
