You guys, today is exactly three months until I go on my big trip to the UK and Europe! Eeeee!
Anyway, I’m back to it after my lovely, refreshing non-writing week. And I have two new goals! As I said on Wednesday, I realised that I was neglecting other goals in favour of writing. It’s all very well to get on a roll and just want to shut everything out, but I don’t want the only thing crossed off on my 101 Things in 1001 Days list to be “Publish a novel.” And on Saturday, I started serialising a story I have half-written as part of Short Story Saturday. So, goals:
- Work 2 hours a week on WIPs (currently focusing on finishing outlines for both Friend of the Enemy and Operation: Sugarplum).
- Add 500 words to story, Keep Your Enemies Closest, per week. This story is background for two of the side characters in FotE.
- Visit ROW80 sponsor posts after each check-in.
- Spend an hour a week working towards Mission 101 goals.
So that’s the plan. I was determined to get back into piano playing recently and bought a stand so that my keyboard can be permanently out and not under my bed, but do you think I’ve touched it since then? Nope! I also have a couple of knitting projects half-finished, and I have all the equipment to learn to crochet and just need to get around to it. I am slowly working on the “Play a video game right through to the end” one. It’s the game version of Disney’s Tangled, but hey, I’m not really a gamer, so it has to be something fun and random for me.
Onto Music and Mirth Monday, hosted by the wonderful ReGi McClain. Regi has been keeping us cultured the past couple of weeks with clips of Andrea Boccelli, so in that vein, I have here the video for one of my favourite Josh Groban songs, Per Te.
And now for the most adorable Shakespeare-related thing you will ever see in your life:
