Plans? What Plans?

Well, so far nothing I’ve planned to do writing-wise this month has happened.

(I have done a bit of editing of Book 5 of The Academy of the Accord, and discovered that it’s a much bigger mess than I remembered it being. I have no idea how I managed to completely contradict myself in less than three pages, but I guess all things are possible when you’re a writer.)

(Not to mention that the prologue to Book 6 potentially screws up half of Book 5… Although I could maybe find a way to still make it work… Hmmm… That might really make it work better, actually…)

I haven’t even looked at Onyx Sun.  Well, I opened the file last night because I was tagged in the 7-7-7 Challenge on FB. (You go to page 7 (or 77) of your current work in progress, count down 7 lines, and post 7 lines.  My problem with these challenges is always trying to decide which WiP to post from.)

Oh, and I haven’t finished last Saturday’s Rainbow Snippets blog hop and this week’s goes live tomorrow.

Let’s see where this month went wrong.

First and Second: Work was horrendously draining, pretty much sapping any energy I had. Plus, on Sunday (the 1st) I had to run to another town to pick up a rat that I was transporting across the state.  That chunk of my morning threw me behind in the weekend blog hops.

Tuesday (the 3rd) I was off, but I was off on a 14+ hour road trip to drop off the Naked Man I’d picked up on Sunday, and pick up five more (non-naked) males that I’m adding to my own mischief.

Wednesday was spent recovering from the 14+ hour rat related road trip and trying to do some of the stuff that I normally would have done on Tuesday.

The new rats were rescues that someone else took in but needed to find new homes for.  They are not very trusting, but I’m working on it.  Three of them are coming around (slowly) but the other two are going to take more time.

Yesterday was back to work, and the outlook on the writing front isn’t improving much – we got word that our landlord is selling the apartments (again) and (far worse!) will “need access” for the real estate company.  I do have until next Thursday (at least) for that to get sorted as far as a mad dash to make the place look semi presentable.

Can we pretend this month hasn’t started yet and start over?

On a happier note, I’ve been asked to write a guest blog post about The Academy of the Accord.  More news on that later.  Right now I have to medicate the brat rats and get some serious blog hopping done before work.  Oh, and do at least a couple cleaning type things.
