Especially since last week’s “Oh hey you’re going to work until 11 p.m. every night trying to make a deadline” adventure is OVER.
On the plus side, I spent this weekend with my family, which meant hanging out with my dad and brother for a belated Father’s Day (because yes, my baby brother is a dad now HOLY HELL WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN). I also got to make lots of kissy-faces at my niece, and actually got her to stop crying at one point by humming “Smoke on the Water,” an idea I got from a Supernatural .gif. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT WORKED.
Next time, I’m going to try “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
On to goal updates!
1) Write 30k on the urban fantasy story. (And really, I should think up a title while I’m at it…)
Still no title, but I did break 24k on the main story this week and wrote almost 4,000 words of another scene. So counting all the non-main-story stuff I’ve written in this world, I think I passed 30k this weekend. Huzzah!
“I can get you season tickets to the OU football games,” I said.
He scoffed. “I don’t want your shitty student section tickets.”
“Not student section. Fifty yard line. Right behind the home team.” I considered how much Tony and Darius owed me, and added, “I may even be able to swing two or three.”
Devan raised his eyes from his plate and studied me. “You’re not lying.”
I shook my head. “Nope.”
“And just how does a kid like you get tickets like that?”
I just settled against the booth and shrugged. “A wizard never reveals his secrets.”
He regarded me for a moment longer, and then set down his fork. “My attention. You have it. What do you want?”
2) Read at least 4 books.
Pretty much the same place it was last week.
3) Revise first 3 chapters of TSB.
Same place it was last week.
4) Post 2-3 times/week on the blog.
So far, so good! I’ve hit the twice-a-week mark all month. 🙂
5) Finish crits on Cloudy for Eris. (NEW)
