I flew to Boston for business Sunday AM and returned Wednesday PM (hence the tardiness of this post). With organized dinners every night, early starts each morning, day-long travel to and from, I thought I’d surely miss the mark. I forgot how productive I was while on the airplane.
I nailed my words, novel progression and beta reading with about 2600 new words written and almost four (long) chapters beta read / critiqued. No progress yet on my editing but that’s probably going to happen after I finish the current novel beta read I’ve in process. Too many things going at once does not work for me.
I did have to withdraw from a contest, alas. After returning from a week long vacation Friday night, I discovered I had until 9 AM on Monday to enter a second original piece of writing in the finals (a second round never mentioned in the original rules, I’ll add). Problem was I had to fly to Boston early Sunday AM. I knew Saturday was going to be a mad rush to catch up on laundry, work on the taxes, participate in a previous writing commitment, get a new debit card (nothing like the prospect of going out of town ATM / debit cardless). I was a wreck. The contest had to go because, gasp, real life bubbled to top of the list. I know! The horror! No Barnes and Noble card for me. Cassandra Clare’s latest release is going to have to wait a bit longer (like I don’t already have a whopping stack of to-be-reads.)
