The past few days have been a bit rough. I’ve been extremely tired from the new medication and I have experienced some breakthrough pain. Even so, I am still happy with how it’s working because it is taking the pain away most of the time. I’m hoping to adjust to the sleepiness at some point (she says hopefully…).
That said, my progress has been a bit up-and-down.
Survivor – Today I continued to work on the outline. I rearranged a few things and considered some ways to torture my characters. 😉 It is growing in ways I hadn’t anticipated. I think this will be a tremendous improvement over the first draft. I am still thinking about a potential sequel to include the last quarter of the original first draft and then write the actual sequel I planned years ago as the third book in a trilogy. Still noodling, though.
Fireborn – 1,376 new words, broke 21k in draft. However, I may need to rework the last few scenes. I’m getting the feeling that I may not be on the right track. Typically, I write drafts straight through with the exception of this type of situation. It is giving me the heebie jeebies.
Covenant – 916 new words written, up to 9k in draft. I have an interesting situation going on there and I’m eager to continue working on it.
Camp Nano – up to almost 9k, goal is 10k. 🙂
Etsy shop – just began the process to set up a shop. I couldn’t have any of the names I thought up, so I went with one that’s kind of unoriginal but supposedly you can change it later. So. Getting there.
Camera repair – Hoping to go next Saturday and get it done so I can run my first test roll! Also hoping to do more digital infrared pics.
Chocolate consumption report: A bit more than last week. Yesterday was my mother-in-law’s birthday party and my hubby bought a chocolate cake with chocolate fudge-like frosting. And we bought M&M ice cream and oreo ice cream so uh, chocolate overload! In just one day! For the rest, minimal as per my one-per-day plan.
That’s it from me. How’d you do?

I had 2 birthday parties this past weekend and a picnic with lots of cakes and sweets, so I can sympathize. So, we both fell off the wagon, let’s just get back up and start again. 🙂 Besides we both know that we can do it, right? Thus, fresh start!
Getting back into the swing of things after a long week last week.
Oh and character torture is fun! Even if that sounds bad. hehehe 🙂
Cindy – Absolutely we can get back on the wagon again! And yeah…I think I enjoy torturing my characters way too much. 😉
When I compare (which I shouldn’t) it looks as if you did a heck of a lot more than I. So there.
Thank you, Amy! But I always say…progress is progress, big or small!
