Obviously one of my goals next round of #ROW80 should be to blog more consistently. But whatever. I’m kicking ass and taking names on the writing front. About 9k into this little Christmas novella (yeah, the one that was supposed to be a Meet Cute–that one) and still going strong. I’ve made some really great plotting strides with book 2 in this Seekrit contemporary trilogy. Looking forward to more of that once I’m off for the holiday. And I’ll be diving into revisions on Reed and Cecily’s novella.

On the less interesting regular life front, I’ve turned in my final grades, nearly gotten my class updated for next semester with the absolute MANDATORY stuff, and we’re wrapping things up for the year at the rest of the evil day job. Office Christmas parties the rest of the week.

Note: Note what our office Christmas parties look like.
I’ve been awful about the gym this month. Planning to get back to that next week, when I get off for the holidays. Sleep in and THEN go sweat.
Christmas shopping is DONE. Now I need to WRAP STUFF. I find myself reluctant to put any of it under the tree when I do because I don’t know what Huck will do. We’ve already lost one ornament he thought was a toy. But in the grand scheme of things, he’s destroyed way less than previous puppies.
I feel like I’ve been going 90 miles an hour all year. On the one hand, I would like to slow down next year, but at the same time, I’m reluctant to lose the momentum I’ve had going. I feel like this Round, most specifically through participating in NaNo this year, I actually, FINALLY figured out how to fast draft. I’ve been trying to figure this out FOR YEARS. And I want to be able to stick with that because it means getting more work done. I still have enough stories in my “To Write” file to keep me occupied for twenty years, but this would help a LOT.
Back to the grind…
