Weekend Plans

It’s my Friday and I’m looking forward to my “weekend” on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I currently have over twenty things (and growing) on my “To Do” list for my days off.  Some of them won’t take all that long but it’s a matter of making myself do them.  Of course, it’s the same with the ones that will take a long time – making myself do them.

Some are writing related, some are pet related, and some are just housework – which is still kind of writing related because it helps me work through plot issues.

Anyhow, I thought I’d share my oh-so-exciting weekend plans with you, because, you know, writers have such glamorous lives.


Clean the rat cage.

Rat food to containers.

Jazzy to the vet on Tuesday at 11:15 for a check up on her eye.

Clean up the dog poop in the yard. (See? I told you it was glamorous!)

Measure the fence.

Mark where crocuses are or aren’t so I don’t dig up too many when planting roses later this spring. (Yes, we have crocuses blooming. In February. In Western Pennsylvania.)

Move the white barrel.

Move the (neighbor’s) rain spout.

Clean the stove.

Clean out the fridge (since garbage won’t be picked up until Wednesday this week because today is a holiday).

Mop the kitchen floor.

Set up Wednesday Words for March.

Set up Rainbow Snippets for March.

Set up Sunday Snippets for March.

Write two thousand words for my Elven Bard WiP.

Outline Paranormal Picnic.

Outline the “Shared Soul” thing and change its name because it strayed from the original concept and I’m pretty sure there’s no going back.

Outline Fighting Back. (And find it a better title.)

Do two very overdue beta reads.

Work on my entry for the QSF Flash Fiction Contest.

Play with my laminator.

Set up my planners for next month.

Enter changes to Onyx Sun so I can get it printed for another go round.


I think that should keep me out of trouble.

And I think that I might need more than two days off.

    2) OMG YOU’RE IN WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA? I used to live in the southwestern corner of PA.
    3) That’s quite a to-do list. I wish you the best of luck completing at least 50% of it. ;)

    • 1. Yep. Five at the moment. I just lost my oldest boy, one of the first three I got. He was just over three years old.

      2. Kittanning, about 40 or 45 miles NNE of Pittsburgh.

      3. I’ll be happy with 50%, especially considering it’s now up to about 40 things.

        I had two female rats a few years ago. They both got tumors when they were only a year or so old. :( I miss them. They’re such cool little creatures.
        I have never been to Kittanning but I’ve heard the name. That’s cool. Small world, lol.
        How much of your list did you end up getting done?

    That is quite a to-do list. I haven’t written one of those in a while, and I’m scared to look at it if I had… I haven’t done much of anything of late.

    QSF has announced their next contest?!? How did I miss this?!?

    • Dunno. They mentioned it a while back. The theme is Renewal and they’re talking about moving the deadline up to March instead of April.

        Hmmm… I’ll have to look back through some posts then because I don’t remember that. Oh well. I have other submissions I should probably concentrate on, so might not worry about it too much.
