It’s been a really wonderful weekend. In fact, looking back, it’s been a great week.
Yesterday we cleaned house and finally took down all the Christmas decorations. We would have done it sooner, but since there was snow and ice everywhere, we decided to wait. This weekend saw some balmier temperatures (it hit 36 degrees today!), so we finally froze our asses off and officially said good bye to the holidays.
Then we played DnD (Dungeons and Dragons) which is always a good time.
Today we were both off for MLK day. We spent it primarily with each other, which was blissful. Trevor creates YouTube content for Heroes of the Storm (a Blizzard free to play MOBA- Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). With his commitment to his channel, and my commitment to writing and blogging, we can both squirrel away to our offices without seeing much of the other.
Today we went grocery shopping, made a ridiculously delicious (and extravagant) dinner, and then played Overwatch together for a few hours.
But, despite the holiday, it is Monday, which means we both have work to do.
So, how did last week go? Fan-fucking-tastic. Pardon my French.
Last week’s goals were:
- Finish Chapter 11 of From the Quorum
- Read A Borrowed Man
- Publish 2 blog posts
It doesn’t seem like much, now that I look at it, but I accomplished it all and I feel damn good about it!
I wrote a total of 2,822 words plus four handwritten pages of world building. I published three blog posts. And I not only read and reviewed A Borrowed Man, but started and finished Dark Run. The book review will be out later this week, so keep an eye out.
So, with such a productive week behind me, what’s on the docket for this week?
- Write Chapter 12 of From the Quorum
- Finish reading Jackaby
- Publish 2 blogposts
Basically, I’m not going to mess with a good thing. This formula worked last week, and it will most likely be my formula through the end of the month. February is when things will look a bit different, as that’s when I’ll be diving back into editing The Steel Armada.
So, that’s the plan. Small, doable steps each week. At this rate the novel will be done sometime in June or July, with edits on The Steel Armada done in either July or August. It sounds far away, but it’s much closer than it seems.
And I can’t wait.
