I need a do-over.
Other than the terrific news from Samhain, Feb. was pretty much a bust. I didn’t finish Revision Xibalba — and I should have been able to do so. I can’t even blame it on a new project, because I only finished one section in the new sfr project. I was rather scattered. I spent days brainstorming a new title for Letters, tenatively “Make Me.” I spent days angsting about an agent. Then poof. I looked up and the month was gone.
So today, I cleaned my desk. I made a consise list of what I need to do in order to complete Revision Xibalba this month. I have some items to complete for Samhain this week, but otherwise, Revision Xibalba is my number one priority until I get editor revisions on either Road or Letters (MM).
My mood hasn’t been the greatest the past week or so. After I turned in my “year in review” status report this past week (performance appraisal time is just around the corner), my boss at the Evil Day Job said she thought I was going to quit. Not hardly, but reflective of how off my game I’ve been.
Oh, and I also broke my teapot. With tea in it, of course. And one paper towel left in the entire kitchen. Don’t even ask about the dumb thing I did to Bethanie!
So I’ll be shopping for a new teapot — and hoping for a better month!
