Welcome to the Sunday Seven – where I recap the past seven days and lay out my seven writing goals for the upcoming week.
I managed about six of my holiday cards. Only fourteen-ish to go! And I’m trying to do my shopping, but I always want to spend more than I have. What can I say? I love giving gifts!
My first appointment with a counselor is bright and early Thursday morning. This should be interesting considering I’m not a morning person. However, I’m looking forward to learning how to chase away at least some of this dark fog.
I’m still stoking a fiery creative streak, but letting other things fall by the wayside. 1) My newsletter plan didn’t even cross my mind this week. Hmmm… I’ll have to roll that into next week. 2) Sadly, nary a glance was directed at my Dreamspun Desires project. Still, I did come up with an additional project for the same line that captured my interest. It really is awesome. 3) Ezra didn’t get any love this week either. (Sheesh! What the hell did I do?) 4) Oh yes, I finally got an idea for my Starstruck WIP, involving a photographer and a former bully turned actor. 5) The Bah Humbug WIP is raring to go! Scenes keep playing out in my head. Now, to capture them on paper. 6) Victorian research was a no go. 7) I read quite a bit: Snow Bound by Linnea Alexis, Pure Adrenaline by Nikki Prince, and Cold Feet by Jay Northcote. The stand outs were: Talk Turkey by Bru Baker, and debut novel, The Red Envelope by Atom Yang. Seriously, check ’em out! They really made my week!
And without further ado…
The Sunday Seven
1) Work on a newsletter plan. Work on newsletter plan. Work on newsletter plan. Maybe if I say it enough, I’ll do it!!
2) Ditto with my poor, neglected Ezra! Goal, motivation, and conflict.
3) Outline Starstruck WIP (12k) due May 1, 2016 according to the new ideas that came to me!
4) I’m not going to kid myself that I’ll get anything done on my NaNo Dreamspun Desires book this month. That will go on the back burner until January 1st. Instead, I’ll outline this new idea to make myself useful.
5) Start small with the Bah Humbug book – opening paragraph? A page?
6) Research – something Victorian. I’ll carry around the heavy book if I have to.
7) Read – Checking my Kindle..I have two holiday reads left (if I don’t buy more), but one is an actual novel, rather than a short story or novella. Then I may just jump into the TBR pile.
Anyway, enjoy the week!
