The Workload... wk 9

Yup. I shot myself in the foot.

Well not literally, I'd actually like to say that real life shot me in the finger :D That's a little better. Last week I'd decided since I'd written 10k that I should make it my goal and then Hades unraveled in my house and exploded. I barely had time to write this past week. Regardless, I actually did edit and crit a couple of different works. So I wasn't completely out of the writing loop. I did however only manage to get 3k written.

The meager amount, does push me up to 32k for my WIP which rocks. This week is week four, and so I'm hoping to keep the ball rolling and stick to an even 8k, if I surpass then it's my surprise right?

(nod along with me people, it'll be easier if you just agree with me :D)

I did manage to finish my poetry revision, I am now waiting for an answer from a question I sent to the editor. I'm hoping it got there. I always worry whether or not my queries/submissions arrive at their destination. Does some evil hand of fate will snake it's way through the interwebs and pluck it into a black hole because something out there likes to torture me...

Oops. *blushes* Now I've gone off tangent, I should get on with this week's goals before boredom/fear sets inside you from the severely damaged warbling's which ride around my head.

New Goal:

Sub one thing out.

That's it. I'm trying to get the rest of my life into neat folds at the moment and I'm going to stick with what I know I can do for now.

Have a great week and Happy Writing!

Eh, life gets in the way sometimes, Hinster. Always does. Heck, even just attitude can be just as stifling. It happens.

32k on the novel is impressive, by the way.

Man, 32K is a nice sum. Makes the thing have real weight...a life of its own. Just keep writing, no matter how little.

K.Hinny said...

I plan to Aaron! Yes, I'm super excited about hitting 30, and onward I keep going :D

Sounds like I need to reign in my choas there dear, my life seems to have crawled and infected yours.

Just keep going. (Least that is what I keep telling myself.)

Good work on the words you did do.

K.Hinny said...

Ah... sadly Shadow, it's always this way for me. A deluge then the 5 min. Calm then another deluge... can't be helped I attract the storms wherever I go :P


Lee Thompson said...

Fantastic, but I'm not nodding along with anyone. :-P

Keep kicking butt and burning up those keys, Kara!

K.Hinny said...
