Welcome everyone, to another Monday Meeting. Last week, I did a lot of writing related things, but not a lot of revising. I had big plans yesterday afternoon to get a lot of that revision done, but instead, I fell asleep. Crashed. I was seriously tired. But, before falling asleep, I reached for a comfort read. NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman. I did wake up later to watch parts of the Superbowl, specifically the commercials. I had been feeling so burned out and had been go-go-going for so long, that my body just needed to crash and reset. And, now, I'm great. Refreshed. Back in the game.
Or I was, until I had to confront the oil company this morning as to how it was possible that we ran out of oil Saturday. If you're wondering, evidently, it was our fault. Even though we're on automatic delivery, and have a credit balance, somehow we had used more oil than was expected, (mabye, possibly, because it was COLD) so the oil company was not to blame. Yup. I love it when people don't take responsibility for their actions. Argh. Letting it go. Letting it go. Deep breath.
On to the meeting:
This week, I'd like to get the next chunk of stuff revised for my Middle Grade project. And, I have a little voice in the back of my head telling me to draft the ending on my YA. I normally listen to the voices in my head when it comes to writing. But, I also have a meeting with Robert, so we'll see if my priorities this week will change after talking the projects out.
To sum up, I will revise at least two chapters on my Middle Grade, and do some drafting on my YA.
What about you? What book do you go to when you you need comfort? Do you heed the voices in your head? What are you setting out to accomplish this week?
