Overall, I’m feeling pretty good, even though there are major things going on in the family life. My father has a heart condition, and he’s in the hospital for the six thousand and eighty fifth time in his life. His prognosis is not good, and I’ll probably be stretching the family budget to take a 15 hour train ride so I can be with my mother.
I’m glad I did a lot of prep work during October. I finished Synaesthesia, my time travel serial I’ve been publishing on my blog a chapter at a time. I’ve entered chapters 15-18 plus the epilogue into the blog and scheduled them, so all I need to do is give them a quick edit and an image or two and they’ll go up exactly on time. I also pre-formatted and scheduled my SyFy Q of the Day posts all through November.
I made and froze several meatloaves and chicken pot pies, so my family won’t starve whether I’m out of town or just busy writing.
I wish I was ahead on interviews, but at least I’m on time, and I’ve arranged who is being interviewed each week halfway through December.
And the NaNoWriMo story! At last! It’s been beating its way out my head for weeks now, and I was afraid it was going to come out before I was ready. I’m so very glad that it is now started. I stayed up till 2am to start it, and I reached 2k words, which is a great start. More tonight.
How’s everyone doing with ROW80? Have you changed your goals?
