Well, hey, here it is. Friday. Time for another blog post. And time to go back to work. (Friday is my Monday; my weekend is Wednesday and Thursday.)
It’s also more or less the middle of the month, and I am… nowhere near the middle of my goal for Camp NaNoWriMo. (Closer to a fifth of the way if I’m doing the math right.)
I had wanted to get caught up over my weekend, but it was pretty busy. I spent way too much time and money shopping on Wednesday (food shopping – not even fun shopping), and cooking both Wednesday and Thursday. (My roommate and I are both nurses and both work on Sunday so we did our “Easter Dinner” yesterday.) I was pretty wiped out by the end of the day both days and feel like I need a day off to recover from my days off.
I am going to try to get a couple more pages done before work today, though. Every little bit helps, right?
Hopefully I’ll have some easy shifts this week so I can get more work done on the first round paper edits of The Academy of the Accord series. I’m currently on Book 10, and if I can get it done by the end of the month, and get Books 11 and 12 done by the end of next month, then I can try to get the concordance done by the end of the year, which will make the next round of edits go much more smoothly. I hope. I’m still shooting for a 2020 release for the series, and it’s almost looking possible.
Meanwhile, writing new stuff has been on hold, other than a flash fiction piece for the QSF contest and occasional Thursday Threads entries. And now I’m looking at maybe writing a short story or two to submit for consideration in an anthology…
Yes, I know I should be working on the sequel to Song and Sword, and I will be, but the deadline for the anthology is June 1st and it doesn’t really have one, so…

Has the Camp prophet, a.k.a. projection doomed you yet? Mine has doomed me. I won’t finish until May 6th, according to it. (I’m hanging onto the railing of the Bridge of Doom, refusing to be hurled into the pit :)). My official excuse is I was Kidnapped by Culture. Which I have been this month, repeatedly. Yes, I’m coming up with catchy excuses for impending failure, although I’m determined to do as much as I can. After all, the ultimate goal of Camp isn’t to get the Winner’s Badge. It’s to get some work done on a project, even if it’s just a little. If you’ve managed to do even a little, thanks to Camp, Camp was worth it. (hugs)
May 6th? Oh, honey, I’m gonna finish on June 28th! LOL
