Weekly writing check-in: the one with the flu

Jr. High Rainbow

So I thought I dodged getting my daughter’s “flu-like virus” (as her doctor described it). No such luck. It hit me hard on Sunday afternoon. So hard that I’m afraid to go look at what I wrote in my blog last week.

I pretty much gave up on being productive for the rest of the day and into the week. Instead, I binge-watched The Expanse, which was surprisingly therapeutic.

But … I did feel better as the week went on. I did the final listening proof on An Army of Toads and sent it on its way. I did some research on the new series, attended the monthly Truby class, and noodled about with a new project, which may not turn into anything. So, I’ll refer to it as the noodle project for now. At some point I will be more specific than that.

Also! I’ll be going to the Iowa Summer Writing Festival! I received my confirmation letter and one from my instructor. I’m only attending a weekend workshop, but I’m very excited.

Bullet Journal update: I’m liking it. I’m cautiously optimistic about it as well.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with West Side Story

So my daughter and I went to see West Side Story this week, which was a lot of fun, but a very late night for both of us. We went on Friday, and the Wild (as in the hockey team, Minnesota Wild) were playing as well. And that was fine, except the game got out when the play did, and we ended up spending some quality time in the parking garage.

Also, I have no idea if the Wild even won their game.

I did some more editing this week, some planning, and some reading/research.

I also started a bullet journal. I’m always making lists, but I end up making them in twelve different places, then I lose all my lists. This is an attempt to keep all my lists together. We’ll see how it goes.
