mortmain - restrictive influence of the past on the present
Last week . . . *shakes head sadly* . . . I don’t know whether it was a convergence of the wrong planets, bad karma, or just plain bad luck, but last week was not a good week, neither writing-wise nor personal.
The doctor’s appointment I had Monday? I made this appointment back in October. I left work an hour early to get to my appointment on time. After waiting an hour and a half, the doctor was called away to an emergency and I had to reschedule. The first available appointment was June 30. Argh!
I did not have my “poemwork” done for my poetry group on Tuesday, although I did have a couple of new poems to read.
The rest of the week went downhill from there. All I can say is, I’m glad that week is behind me and a new week is just starting.
This Week’s Goals:
Tuesday: I have an idea for a new series I’d like to start, but it’s going to take a bit more investigation and a lot more research to see if it will fly. So, for this week I’m going to present you with a few random facts about the Bard.
Wednesday: I was cleaning up my e-mails on the weekend and I found a few amusing tidbits for Whimsical Wednesday. Thank God for friends who spam me!
Thursday: This week’s Passion for Poetry form is the Ballade, a French form which is not to be confused with the Ballad.
Friday: I solemnly swear to post Chapter 36 of the Space Opera.
Elsewhere in my week:
I have a meeting of the Northumberland Scribes tonight, for which I was supposed to write 150 words on the topic of spring and which I forgot about until now. Oops! Guess we’ll see how fast I can write after work today.
I have a couple of books I’ve been reading and I’d like to finish at least one of them by the end of the week. I’d also like to get a few more entries made into my book catalogue.
I’m sure by now you’ve noticed the colour changes to this blog. I got playing with the colours on the weekend and sometimes I just don’t know when to stop. It’s not exactly what I was aiming for, and I may or may not keep it like this. We’ll see how I feel later in the week.
So that’s what’s in store for me this week. How about you? What are you up to this week?
