I’m still making glacier-slow progress on Ever Touched dictating. I guess it’s just going to be slow while my wrist heals. Very frustrating, but it is what it is.
Also I’ve been fighting exhaustion again, so there’s so much I wanted to do that didn’t get done. Apparently I’m not anemic, so it must be the fibromyalgia. I’ve been meaning to get back into my darkroom to print, but I’ve had to put it off for the past few weeks. Hopefully, I can soon.
I also participated in #PitDark on Thursday (a twitter pitch thing where you pitch a book in a tweet to agents and publishers). I got two really good agents who are interested in my book (Pirouette/Death Dancer – the same one I sent off to a different publisher in January) so for the past few days I’ve been working on a query letter. Distilling a 121k novel down into what feels like haiku is not only really hard, but exhausting. I’ve been getting good feedback on a forum I’m on, so I think I’m on the right track. One of today’s tasks is to do another revision. Cross your fingers and toes that this works! I would love to get an agent out of this. If anything else, it’s great practice for the future.
Okay, on to the rundown:
Ever Touched – up to 87k (approximately 4,000 words written since the last check-in. More than I thought, actually! Maybe it just feels like it’s going slow?)
Covenant – Nada. I really feel awful about this. 😦
Water – Every day except two.
Exercise – 3 times – 2 walks, 1 bike (up to 6 minutes now!)
Elysium – Nada. Wanted to do something on it yesterday but the wrist wasn’t cooperating. Does planning on doing it, even if it doesn’t get done, count? (Just kidding!)
Darkroom – As mentioned above, this has been put off due to exhaustion.
Chocolate consumption – Oreos. Lots of Oreos. WW Sundaes. WW chocolate caramels.. Ice cream Twix bars. Did I mention Oreos? 😉
Annnnd that’s it for me. How about you?

Sounds like you’re making good progress even if it doesn’t always feel like it. Hope the exhaustion clears up soon for you.
Thanks, Fallon! I hope so too!
I love those times that feel slow, but, when I tally things up, I realize that a lot got done. =)
Sending your wrist loving thoughts, and hoping the exhaustion eases up, too.
I have faith that you will create a memorable query, and, as you said, there’s value in the practice, whatever happens. Just know I’m rooting for you! =)
Thanks Shan! I appreciate the support and encouragement!
