My week this week was…unproductive to say the least. Long days at work and many family events during the evenings. It’s making me a little nervous with NaNo coming and things only getting busier. It’s just the time of year when things go into warp speed.
We’re also mid-birthday party planning for the boy child. He’s going to be the big SIX years-old. I thought we were going for a Scooby Doo themed party, but he’s now changed his mind and wants a soccer themed party. I figure a soccer cake, some Gatorade and I can just throw them outside with a soccer ball. That’s a good party, right?
So, what have I accomplished towards my ROW80 goals this week? Well, I’m not sure I got a full five hours of work done. However, I’ve been reading Donald Maas’ book “Writing the Breakout Novel” and had a few insights for the NaNo novel. As a matter of fact, the person who never outlines, has actually developed an outline of sorts!
I’ve also been connecting with some of my fellow NaNoers from the Oklahoma City area and have plans to attend some write-ins throughout November. Check to NaNo prep!
The coming week will be challenging with work travel and a Kindergarten musical program where my child, dressed as The Fonz, will sing. I can’t wait for that. I have taken off this Friday to spend the day writing. More to come!
