Yes, it’s been one of those days, which was preceded by one of those weekends. Is it just me or has the up and down weather been creating an abnormal number of migraines this summer?
Anyway, I’m feeling much better now so I thought it was time I got around to posting.
Last week kind of fizzled out on me.
Fiction-wise I’m sure you noticed I missed Creative Friday, which I’m thinking of re-naming Flash Friday ‘cause I’d like to start doing more flash fiction. The problem is, I’d also like to start marketing some of my flash fiction and if I do that I can’t have it on my blog. It’s a catch-22 situation that I can get around by compressing a longer piece into a flash so it’s more of an excerpt. Or expanding a flash into a longer piece. Or something like that. . .
No, I don’t really know what I’m talking about. We’ll see how it goes. :-)
So no Creative Friday last week and I did not finish my outline for the Starlight Series. I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t even work on it. I did, however, get three reports done for my Human Resources course.
I did much better poetry-wise last week. I did finish a poem for my poetry group, however I’m not happy with it so I’m going to work on it some more. I also have a poem coming out this week in poetryz’own and three more were accepted for future publication.
I was just about set for the AW anthology when I realized that three of the poems were still under consideration elsewhere, so I’m having to come up with replacements for them before I can fire off the submission.
Goals for this week:
Get that submission done for the AW anthology
Something new for Flash Friday
Work on expanding the piece I posted last Saturday
Three more assignments for Human Resources
I also have a quiz on Wednesday and an exam on Thursday so I’d really better be prepared to get off my lazy butt this week!
