Life bulldozed me this last week or so. My lofty word-count goals fell to the holiday, my day job, and enjoying time with family.
Preliminary inventory is done at the shop. This is always a huge job. We'll do it once more before the end of the year. This year, though it wasn't as brutally cold as it has been in the past, I seemed to feel the cold more. I had to make cannibal soup (a hot bath) when I got home to warm up.
The girl has been delivered back to school to finish out the first semester, and the boy and I are working on his standardized tests and running to Bball practices.
In between, I must get 22K words written and a novel edited. I had hoped to finish the first draft by 11/30, but that's not going to happen. The new goal is to have it finished by 12/10.
Holiday season goals are tricky. My agent, Rachelle Gardner, had a post about making a holiday plan that is realistic for the circumstances. You can read that post using the link below.
