I’ve barely been updating lately. First because I had the flu and wasn’t doing anything but resting and marathon watching various and sundry things on Netflix and then because I was over the flu and have been playing a great big game of catch up. And also because I’ve been putting my focus on more practical matters than creative ones, as the university has mucked up my teaching salary for six weeks and I’ve had to focus on beefing up other sources of income (that’s finally getting straightened out Friday, thank you lord–and can we get a great big Boo for idiot bureaucracies?).
I replotted She’s Got A Way because Liam and Riley told me in no uncertain terms that they are a full novel, not the piddly 40k novella I had allotted them. My mistake. I’ve got the new outline and will be diving into that by the end of the week.
I knocked out a guest post I promised.
I’m about half through the print layout for my cookbook, Help! Food Allergies Coming To Dinner, which I hope to finish today.
I did our taxes.
And I am ALMOST ready to reveal my new website. I’ve been working hard on designing a new one that combines everything that’s already here, plus my cooking blog. I hope to get THAT sorted by the end of the week (and as such, probably won’t be posting while I get content migrated and such).
I had a fantabulous writer weekend with Lockwood Monk, which contributed to general writer recharge and the plotting of and planning for an anthology novella that’s my next project after Liam and Riley.
I saw Jupiter Ascending, which I totally loved. The score by Michael Giacchino, btw, is fantasatic.
And of course there’s been a crapton of catching up to do at the evil day job. Which I must get back to.
I haven’t been updating much, either. My blog used to be interesting. I would like it to be again. I’m glad you finally got over being sick. And that really sucks about your salary.
Hubby and I really want to see Jupiter Ascending. I just hope I’m not too sick to go Saturday, since I’m on my second bought of sickness this year. That’s the only movie I want to see right now, and since you like it, I’m sure I will.
Glad to hear you are getting better, but your schedule, despite that Netflicks marathon, sounds really intense, battling the bureauracracy — successfully! A new website, a cookbook almost out, and a novel instead of a novella. Stay well. Your projects (and that day job) need you — as do we!
