Raven is crazy. It makes sense – we do, after all, have the same views on these things :p – but explaining it to my family is taking some work.
Another week another dime. Yet again, it’s another of those weeks when, with a blink, all seven days are gone and I’m back to where I started. I feel like time is going quicker now. Do you feel that? Like we’re counting down to something big, but instead of time slowing, it’s going faster? I don’t mean Christmas, though that is nice of course. I’m not sure what it is.
I haven’t had the results from my blood tests yet, so I’m guessing they haven’t found anything major. I will need to give them a buzz at some point though; just to chase them up. I hate waiting, you see.
Had a great feel to it. Got to see a friend I’ve not seen for a while as well as wrapping and buying more presents. I really shouldn’t go crazy, but I can’t help it. There are so many nice things out there I want to buy for people, I’m probably going to have another of those years where I buy myself one thing and that’s it! Not that such a thing is a problem; Dave is buying me a totally AWESOME present! ^_^
Complete my current transcript; it’s a good 40mins left of a three-voice interview, so it will be tough. But if I can get it done, I’ll be looking good.
Done! One more to go.
Try again with 1,000 words of ‘Bill.’
Heh, that’s more Raven than me. Maybe she should have her own set of goals. :p Yes, this has been done. By hand, since she freaked out in Caffe Nero, worried that everybody could see she was writing dirty things on the laptop screen. Funny really, since she doesn’t normally sweat that stuff.
RS: Wrote scenes from next Meeting Each Other story in Nero’s today. Odd that writing ‘cock’ & ‘erection’ in a coffee shop freaked me out!

Write up draft of ‘Just Desserts’ I wrote in Nero’s last week and complete it.
All done. Now it needs a real bashing to get it into a form suitable for submission.
Make final changes (based on feedback) for anthology offering and then put it to one side ready for exterior editing.
Sorted. At last. I’m not touching that again; it’s ready to be externally edited now. ^_^
Come up with backup plan for ‘Carol, Niall & Lin’ cover art.
Another one for Raven. :p Done. Though the hard part is deciding whether the new plan is better than the original.
Leave SORB alone! Don’t change it, don’t mess with it, nothing!
Sorted. It’s getting easier to forget about it too; I have so much other stuff on to worry about. So that’s good. ^_^
It’s getting closer to Christmas too. Next week If I recall my calendar correctly. And also Dave’s birthday. MEEP! So… I guess what I should be doing is tying together the last few things I wanted to do before the three day hiatus next week. Hmm….
Goals For This Week
- Get the last transcript done. Draw a line under it, baby!
- Check daily for paid gubbins.
- Finish draft of ‘Bill’ (I’m not far off, I should be able to do that).
- Start re-reading Slippers & Chains to decide what needs to happen next.
- Take a look at just desserts story (working title I Need A Break) and make general notes about editing plans.
- Leave SORB alone! Don’t change it, don’t mess with it, nothing!
I hope you’re all working towards your goals. The end of the year is in sight, I would love you to be able to say, with pleasure and pride that you’ve achieved everything you set out to this year. And if not, well that gives you some quick goals to kick off the new year.
