The WorkLoad.... wk 10.

*snurffle* I can't believe I've been doing this for ten weeks. It seems like it's been so much shorter *sniffle* but time does have a tendency to slip away *sniffle* from us doesn't it? I had this whole long schpeal planned out for my blog today since RL has stolen my blogging time, yet again. *snurffle* (Sorry! I'll catch up soon, I've not forgot my favorite blogs! *sniffle*)And today has been no exception, although I'm not short on time today the crappy weather has me down for the count with a full head of "swell-Kara's-sinus'-up-to-push-her-eye-balls out-of-her-head-itis" it's no fun. But I must stay on track less I fall of the face of my world *snurffle* and have it crumble into nothingness. (trying to rebuild from nothing is harder than staying on track, even when I feel like my head is about to explode). *aaaachooo!* (and possibly a tad over dramatic...)

Kay last week's goal:

8k - CINDER
Sub one thing out.

Done and done. *sniff, sniff*

I wrote over 12k last week for CINDER, leaving me at 43k for the WIP so far and I subbed three things out (poems) I have gotten responses back and one was accepted while the other two would like me to rework/tweak the poems a little more. So no rejections on that note. A positive there.

New goals for next week... *Aaaccchhooo!*

8k - CINDER
Write outline for new novel wriggling in my noggin.

(I'll add the links to my other blogger buddies a little bit later. *snurffles* )

Have a *sniffle* good day!
Happy writing.

Hey, I'd better not catch your cold Missy! Keep your distance!

The sinuses et al doesn't seem to be slowing down your production. Good for you. Perhaps I should catch it too and then I would at least have an excuse for my lack of productivity.

Awesome, Kara! You're being far more productive than I am, and I thought I was doing pretty good. =)

Once again, brilliant work considering you've been sick and had RL in the way.

Does it feel good to be on task for 10 weeks? I know after a few months of my monthly goals, I was feeling pretty good about myself.

Bettie - Thanks :D

Alan - I don't *think* allergies are contagious... of course my meager knowledge of medication could be my downfall in that matter.

Ken - Thanks! You are doing well, I just fell right on track last week :D

Ben- It does feel pretty good. I have a firm and nice schedule in place (i'm only hoping will stick once the kiddos get out of school) thanks for the read!

It will be bright and sunny before you know it and the leaky faucet will slowly stop dripping. Not to mention that 10 weeks on the straight and narrow is quite an accomplishment.

*Covers blog page with Purell* Hope you feel better and awesome progress!!

Bea Sempere said...

*looks around at the new digs* I like what you've done to the place, Hinny.

Sorry about your sinuses, but girl you're doing great with your goals. Kudos with the poems.

K.Hinny said...

Thanks Matt. :D

JlC-Thanks for the Purell! and Yes, the rain has stopped so I'm feeling much less fuzzy.

Bea- Thanks for stopping by! Thanks for reading and I'm glad you liked it, and I just changed the blog :D (Hope you're doing well!)
