This week in writing
As stated in my previous Sunday Summary, this week I started work on my contemporary Wizard of Oz retelling, which was titled The Yellow Brick Roadhouse until I realised that a roadhouse was not the word I wanted (i.e. for a boarding house/hostel-type thing). So now I’m title-less and have to think of another pun. I’m still finding the right voice for it so I’ve only written 1952 words this week, but it’s getting there. I’m just writing scenes as they come to me, rather than trying to write in order with this one.
this week in reading
I finished the utterly charming A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty on audio this week. I have already got the next two books from the library (my library’s Overdrive didn’t have them, sadly) and I plan to start them as soon as I’ve finished Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan. This is a good sequel to Unspoken in some ways, but in others, it feels like barely anything is reallly happening. BTW. my March TBR has pretty much gone out the window. I don’t know why I even bothered writing one, really.
This week in blogging
I got back on my game of visiting all the WIPpeteers within an hour on Friday night. This is something I need to keep up as we move further into the semester, as blogging time is going to be at a minimum over the next few months. I visited the WWW participants whom I follow and who commented on my post, but didn’t visit any additional ones. It’s about quality, not quantity, though, right? I’ve got my A Corner of White review scheduled for tomorrow and I’m hoping that I’ll have one for Untold scheduled for Friday.
THIS WEEK IN STUDY
Well, I’ve made a start! And I have a to do list. I spent about four hours at the library yesterday, but wifi was not on my side, and while I had a few things downloaded in advance, turned out it was not quite everything I needed. I also got up early this morning and finished the worksheet that is due tomorrow, so I’m feeling not too bad.
This week in health and fitness
As I mentioned last week, I’ve decided to start weighing myself on a Monday rather than a Sunday for various reasons, so I don’t have a figure for you today. But I’ve exceeded 10k steps every day this week, and reached my 5 day exercise goal. My eating habits were reasonably good but I didn’t log everything I ate every day (particularly Friday, when I had three pieces of brownie). Time will tell, thouugh, how this all balanced out, I guess!
Other Highlights This Week
On Friday I had a job interview for the position I’m acting in now (hence the three brownies). If I’m successful in this recruitment process, the position would then become my permanent one. I don’t think it could have gone much better! As far as I can tell, I gave strong answers and gave good examples for all the questions, and I managed not to ramble too much (and when I did ramble, I picked myself up on it, stopped and said, “Sorry, let me go back here.”). Hopefully that will get me high on the list of suitable candidates. The issue is not so much that I would be deemed unsuitable for this one, just that several of my colleagues also applied and are equally suitable. I don’t envy my managers having to make this decision.
