I’m back from the tai chi retreat. As gentle as tai chi is overall, six hours of tai chi can leave you a little sore. The Wii loved that I logged six hours of activity while I was gone over the weekend.
This morning I reached my first modest goal. When you do that, flowers spring all over the screen. I’m buying this sticker book psychology!
Anyway, we’re starting on the next 5 pounds in one month goal today.
While at the monastery, I’ve done some reading and reflecting. I’ve thought about the book, and I’m ready to jump right back in. Tonight looks a bit hectic because of work. You already know about the changes in my position. We also received permission from the college to hire a new full-time ELA teacher. Yes! But right now, I have to let my part-timers know about the new position, and of course, there’s the whole job search.
Tonight for a couple of hours I will be dispensing information. Then there’s that trip to the pharmacist and the garage. Embrace the not writing!
Tomorrow, though, we hit the book, hard. I intend to finish the last 3 chapters of draft 2 by the end of this month, before the big costuming hiatus.
antics of which will be posted elsewhere. If they interest you, let me know, and I can let you know where.
The end of the second draft of the troll book means the plot is entirely sussed out. Draft 3 will be integrating readers comments and overlaying the emotional layer. It will also be slaying the POV monster, at least hacking off its many tentacles.
I will not be sad to see this book go for awhile. It’s been a lot of work!
I think that’s a segway, so I’ll wish you productive days. I’ll get down to writing an agenda and checking some papers. Checking essays over the weekend wasn’t very contemplative, so I left ’em at home.
