How can it be the last day of August? Nothing makes me feel older than the supersonic speed with which days fly past. I still have no laptop at home, so I apologize profusely to all the wonderful folks who have stopped by to comment, and have had no reply. DH brought his work laptop home and kindly is letting me post my check-in while he indulges in playing Halo for a little while.
So, the goals. A mixed week. My book proposal was turned down; originally, they were going to choose 12 proposals, but cut back to 6. I realize my odds, but it still stings. I do have another idea, so I will start in on that tomorrow. Sigh.
Also, my Weimaraner is having some reactions to the heartworm injections, so there have been a few late night emergency trips for him, which impact the early morning writing time.
It will be at least a couple of weeks before I will have a computer available at home, too. I don’t mind writing by hand, but doing all internet on the phone or the iPod Touch is a pain, to be honest.
On the plus side, 1) I have been working on writing for the two hours a day I had planned.
2) I have written out some future posts.
3) I have reorganized Google reader under my lapidaryprose gmail account, and
4) I am reading very slowly and carefully through some of the writing resources.
I also took a deep breath and signed up for the third writer’s platform building campaign. I know there are a few ROW80’ers that I saw in the lists, so I’m hoping that I can continue to support and get support from some of the folks I’ve already met, and learn from as well as help out other writers as well.
So, all in all, still learning to crawl, fall, and take baby steps. How are all of you doing? If you want to take a look and encourage each other, click here.
