With a long long long list of stuff to do, I cannot decide what I want to do first. There are commitments for the holidays but I’m hoping to be able to have a couple days to do only what I want to do. Let’s be real – write. I want to work on writing.
I’ve got Wild Magic 2 in the edit phase which I need to enter the edits I’ve done on the computer. Do a read through and then probably print out and edit again.
Seven Sisters – working title – is also in the works. I want to finish writing this so I can move it to the editing pile. Sequels are pushing at me. One is a longer one which will take time but the other will take a little more plotting out – maybe. Generally I don’t plot things out because I never end up where I’ve plotted things.
As well as the writing projects, I have piles and piles of photo albums I need to work through in order to get them online for the family. I’m talking hundreds I think and probably thousands of photos. I will not be scanning every single photo but I do want to get the family pictures and a sampling of mom’s photography. After the albums are done, we have the same amount of slides which we will have to deal with.
Now I know all of that won’t get done over my time off but I want to make a start. I’m hoping I can make a dent and do a few a weekend or something like that. I’ll have to set up a system.
The holidays are approaching. I’m not interested. I don’t know any other way to say it. When I think of the holidays it makes me sad. This leads to grumpy. I’m trying not to think about it but… In a good year I have issues at the holidays and this has not been a good year.
I’ve been working on Christmas gifts / holiday items for crocheting. I got a number of them done but I have two skeins of yarn I want to make up – mostly because I have a bunch of crochet patterns which I want to publish and these skeins will fit nicely with them. I also think I have people who may want them.
Now if they don’t take them, I will be doing a City Market at the Whitewater Library (I hope) in January (and possibly other months). I can always put them on the table to sell for that event. I think though they will get snapped up before then. I have one more pair of slippers to get done before Christmas day. I need a break from them though as I did a bunch. I find them tedious and annoying. For some reason, I can usually only do about half a slipper at each sitting.
Right now I have to get pictures of two projects – can’t talk about the one as it’s a gift. Once I get those pictures, I need to ship the one out. The other gift will be hand delivered. I LOVE how the two projects turned out and can’t wait to share the patterns.
