Today’s post is a part of the Weekend Coffee Share, graciously hosted by Part Time Monster every weekend. A time for us to come together, share a cup of coffee (or our beverage of choice) to share some of what is going on in our lives. It’s a lovely check-in!
If we were having coffee I’d tell you it was a pretty uneventful week. Work has been busy, and I haven’t had a lot of energy in the evenings. I need to buckle down on the editing, managed a little bit but am thinking that I may need to give myself a bit more time on this. It’s my first time doing this kind of work on a novel and I’m learning an awful lot about my own process and think (hope) that the next one will be able to go smoother.
My plans for the weekend are very heavy on the editing — with a few other events scattered about. Hopefully I’ll get back into the groove and make some real progress.
This weekend I also will be working on some blog-plotting. I have some ideas brewing about, been doing a bit of plotting, planning and idea bouncing with people. What I need to put some real time and thought into is just what I want to really focus on. I have limited energy and need to manage it carefully – with work taking more of it, and wanting to make more progress on the novel I have to pay attention to what I’m working on. Which means some planning — figuring out which projects will keep for a while, which ones can be knocked out more quickly, and setting things into motion.
That’s about all I’ve got today. Lots of thoughts swirling around in my head, but if we were having coffee I’d calm them to hear what you’ve got going on these days. Tell me, I’d love to hear.
