Weekly Goals 28-09-20

 I'm ashamed to admit I got no writing done over the weekend.  All the time I had was taken up with family stuff and chores, which is annoying to say the least!

Especially since I spent time on Saturday going to visit my father-in-law in the hospital, only to discover when I got there that he'd been sent home.  So that was time I could have spent writing which instead I spent on buses and walking.

But on the plus side, at least he's back in his own house which has to be more pleasant for him. Although as he lives alone, I do worry about him.  We went to visit yesterday and he seemed very tired and a little frail which is not something I've ever thought about him before.

Which leads me to this week's goals...  To actually finish the work on Standing Too Close.  And I would also like to scribble down some notes about the plot of my Juliet and Juliet romance in case I decide to write that during NaNo.  It feels more and more likely that this is the story I'm going to tackle and in many ways, I feel like it makes more sense because this is a book with girl protagonists and A Stranger to Kindness is another boy book like Standing Too Close. I can't help thinking it might be good to write some girls again for a while.  It feels like a while since I did that.

So that's me this week.  What are your goals?


  1. To work on story notes at the very least. I had a huge breakthrough last night I’d like to work on, and hopefully actually start writing the thing at some point.

  2. A while back, I drove three hours to see my grandmother-in-law in the hospital, only to get nearly there and find out that she'd been sent home. Then we added about another hour of driving to get to the house. Hope your father-in-law is doing well.

    My goal this week is still to finish the first draft of my current WIP. I want to get it done before NaNo starts because I have a completely unrelated project to work on then.

  3. I hear some people actually relax on the weekends, though I've never seen it in person. Is the working title for that book going to be Juliet + Juliet? I don't know why, but I find that idea so amusing.

    1. I suppose it could be... I hadn't actually thought that far. And you know what? One of the characters is calling herself Jane which I don't like because that's my sister's name, so I think she's going to be Juliet from now on. The other girl has been calling herself Iris, but I'm thinking if she wants to be a flower, Rose might be better...
