Misfeasance Monday

misfeasance ~ doing of a lawful act in a wrongful manner

I don’t want to wait until I’m finished my NaNo novel. I want to start editing it now. Just thought I’d throw that in there. :-)

I had a busy week last week. Monday I went to my Scribes meeting which always gives my creativity a boost. Tuesday I went to a marketing seminar, which was pretty interesting, Wednesday I went out to lunch with a friend and business associate. Thursday a few of us from my poetry group held a workshop for some of the local highschool students – they were a great group of kids and surprisingly talented. Friday I got to stay home. Saturday I actually got about half my ironing done (did I mention it’s a really big basket?), and then I went to the first birthday party of my great niece. Sunday I did some reading and some baking. In between all of that, I got a fair amount of writing done last week.

This Week’s Goals:

Tuesday: This week’s installment of my series on superstition will be about broken mirrors. I’m sure you know the superstition that it’s seven years bad luck to break a mirror, but there are ways to get around it.

Wednesday: Another Hump Day Hunk for your viewing pleasure.

Thursday: Part IV of my Famous Poets series will feature Christopher Marlowe. If you have a favourite poet, feel free to make suggestions!

Friday: Watch for another installment of my NaNo novel. I’m also posting a different one on my other blog.

Elsewhere in my week:

Tomorrow night is my poetry group meeting and not only do I have my ‘poemwork’ done (the topic was to write a poem about a poetry reading) but I might have a couple of new poems to read.

I’ll probably continue doing the famous poets series until after Christmas. The research part is just as time-consuming as the forms, but I’m not having to come up with an example each week and that in turn is allowing my muse a little more freedom. This week I want to get some work done on a couple of personal poetry chapbooks – one of forms, and one of some of my darker poetry.

Also this week, I want to get to work on a family recipe book. It’s one of those things I keep talking about but never get around to doing, but it would make a nice Christmas present to my sisters. I might even include the secret recipe for peanut butter squares.

Other than writing, editing and reading, I don’t know what else this week will bring. How about you? What’s in store for you this week?

Wow - look at you getting all productive too! We might just end the year right after all... ;-)

Much writing, editing and cleaning/cooking this week for me with our holiday. And eating. Mustn't forget eating...

Mmm...peanut butter bars. Do they, by any chance have a chocolate top? 'Cause I *love* those... LOL

Why yes, they do have a chocolate top! :-)

I think the only reason this is a 'secret' family recipe is 'cause I'm the only one willing to make them!
