Weekly Goals 2-11-15

I am so close to finishing my alternate ending of STUMPED.  I had great plans of finishing it yesterday, but my computer decided to stop working.  Of course that created much panic and hair pulling, but luckily my partner is a whizz at computer fixing and after diagnosing a fried hard-drive (eek!), he managed to get everything back on an external drive.

Unfortunately it took him most of the afternoon and evening, so I couldn't finish what I was working on yesterday.

Fortunately I have a system I can work on until I can get a new hard drive.  So I will finish those chapters tonight and send them off.  Only a day late...

I think my computer dying was the universe's way of telling me I had to take a break to go and see my best friend play a gig last night.  So I did, and it was great!

Once I've sent these two versions of STUMPED to my agent, I have revisions to do on The Sidewalk's Regrets.  They're smaller revisions, but feel more difficult, although I have an idea about how to change the ending so it works.  And then I still have to finish revising My Murder Year.

So no NaNo for me this year.  Which is kind of a shame, because I have an idea for a story I wanted to write during NaNo.  But then I'll have another book to revise and I already have too much revision on my plate.  So this year instead of writing a novel during NaNo, I'm going to revise two.

What are your goals this week?

  1. Oh no! That's awful! I'm glad everything wasn't lost and you can now keep working, but it's still such a pain. But then you ended up having fun seeing your friend play. There's always a silver lining, right? Good luck with everything.
