Hey, all! Short update today, as I’m busy preparing a post for tomorrow featuring an awesome cover reveal.
There’s nothing huge to report from last week, anyway. Lots of planning for NaNoWriMo (I still have to do my scene-by-scene outline… one day is enough time for that, right?), lots of proofreading and preparing for my pen name’s upcoming book release. I didn’t get any of the revisions done that I had planned on my own work, though. I think three projects on the go at one time is just too much for my poor brain to handle right now, even if they’re in three separate phases of the process. I got my meditation time in every morning, which means today was day 21 of my streak for that. And I got my planning done for Whole30 week one and tried to ease myself into it a bit so it’ll be less of a shock later this week when my body’s not getting the sugar it craves every day.
It’s gonna be harrrrrrd.
I’m still getting up at 6 to do my meditation and some work before the kids get up, and still trying to make sure I have some down-time before the kids come home (though I’m generally not really sure where that time goes, so I might reconsider my schedule again soon to make things flow more naturally for me).
And that’s about it. The plan for this week is to keep getting up early and do my NaNoWriMo drafting in that early hour+ (might need to go back to 5:30 this month to fit it all in), then get back to my revisions later on as soon as all of this publication stuff is wrapped up.*
I’ll be back tomorrow with that cover reveal! EEP!
*If I can’t fit three projects in every day, it seems to make sense to invest as much as I can into getting this stuff off my desk ASAP so I can get back to other work. It means I’m stressing a bit about those overdue revisions, and I have to hope I can keep myself from letting publication issues drag on to take up all of the available time before November 7, but it’s the best I’ve got for now.
