My goal has been to get more patterns published. I submitted three patterns and one got accepted! Yeah! Last night I worked on a pattern and the pattern is complete I need to finish the crocheting so I can take a picture and submit the pattern.
I have so many ideas for patterns right now but I’ve got a plate and a half full. I’m going to have to keep myself in check and be cautious about what I start. I’d rather look forward and make attempts. I am working on a blanket for one of the issues – I am really liking how it is turning out.
We are building a new pantry in our kitchen. Ken tore out the old pantry today. Hopefully by next weekend we will have new ones. Under normal circumstances, we are usually pretty frugal. However, we are spending a little more money on the shelves because we want specific things in this pantry. If we’re going to the expense of redoing the pantry, I don’t want small shelves in there or ones I’m going to have to replace every few years. I want good sturdy shelves which will hold up and expand my space drastically.
I’m in the middle of projects, not just crocheting but writing, editing, and others. I’ve got a chapter to review in the next Wayfarer novel. My beta readers have told me what I already knew – this one section of the book was rough and needs work. I’m giving it work. I don’t want to rush publication and have readers be unhappy. I have a manuscript I’m making progress on. I was not getting the scenes clear in my head so I wasn’t writing but then it occurred to me what needed to happen. Now I have to make the time to write the scenes while they are in my head. I’ve got one more manuscript waiting in the editing box. It also needs work so it will be slow going on the edits I’m sure.
I’m hoping I’ll be able to finish the two freelance projects fairly quickly. It will bring in money to cover some bills and pay for the pantry. Then I’ll move on to the books. I’m feeling overwhelmed right now but I know this will pass as I get things done.
Royal Undercover is still on tour. I am quite excited about it. I hope this improves sales and awareness of my books. Only time will tell.
