I'm a little late tonight. Mainly because I was actually writing!
So my goals for this past week were:
1) 8k on Angel Moon 2
And I wrote 5346 words. I know. Not 8k but better than I expected with interruptions to my plans. I was shooting for a total of 6k but I distracted myself with browsing online job ads tonight.
I really need to find a full-time day job. Either I suck as a writer or the asshole book pirates have taken a bigger bite out of my royalties than I thought. Going back to work full time appears to be inevitable. If I can find a job. Not many out there. I'm trying to get as much writing done as possible so if I go back, I'll have a few things in the pipeline since my writing time will be seriously curtailed.
Book pirates might not care that what they do is illegal but if they really want to read my books, they have to stop stealing my royalties so I can afford to write. At some point, I might as well quit and concentrate on a day job or two so I can keep paying my bills.
Okay, forget the bummer stuff and back to the report card...
I ended up in Little Rock running errands for Granny one day and in Conway with errands of my own on another. I managed to write a little both days but not as much as I needed. And Friday was almost a complete washout because I tried to give myself a heart attack doing yard work at warp speed. A massive storm moved across the state on Friday and I tried to get everything done before it hit! Dumb! The pain killers make me too drowsy to write! *cackle*
Saturday ended up a day of rest. My little sister came up to Momma's for the weekend. I spent the day there relaxing, laughing and eating too much.
My best writing day was Tuesday. I met Brandi Evans at Starbucks for a morning write-in! I wrote nearly 2k plus figured out the plot to Angel Moon 3! Which I needed to do because I needed to know it so because I need to foreshadow some stuff in Angel Moon 3! LOL
Still 5300 words is pretty good. Plus I did a quick sketch of the plot of one of the next Tennessee Cop stories. I had TnC #4 & #5 lined out already. Now I have #6. After I finish AM2, I'll be working on TnC #4.
This week's goals:
1) Finish Angel Moon 2! (I need about 4-5k words to finish. The end is in sight!) 2) Start book #4 of TN Cops. 3) Work one day for the part-time evil day job.
We'll see how this week goes. I already have to take Granny to the eye doc and the ear doc tomorrow afternoon. I plan to go to the coffee shop early and write until time for her first appointment. I'm meeting Brandi again on Tuesday so my target is to finish AM2 then and do self-edits on Wednesday.
First week of May will be mostly evil day job stuff. I work more hours during the first week of the month than I do the rest of the time. Whatever progress I make this week will need to last me for a while!
Hope ya'll had brilliant progress last week and have a fabulous week this week!
