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.
