Moonstruck Monday

moonstruck ~ 1. dreamily romantic or bemused 2. mentally deranged, supposedly by the influence of the moon; crazed

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

I’m happy to report that last week went much better than the week before. Got some reading and writing done as well as editing.

My posts last week were all written and up as scheduled, and I even managed to write not one but three original examples of the featured poetry form. It helps that it was a fairly easy form to write in. ;-)

I’m still doing well at staying away from the games, but Twitter is another matter. It’s just so tempting with all the chatter and the links and the chatter. I think maybe I need to get out into the real world more. LOL

This Week’s Goals:

Tuesday: Part eight of my series on Home Remedies. Let’s see . . . we’ve covered fevers, frostbite and sore throats, I think it’s time we learned how to deal with a cold.

Wednesday: Another Hump Day Hunk for your viewing pleasure.

Thursday: The poetry form of the week will be the Quaternion. We’ll have to wait and see if the Muse inspires me with an original example or not.

Friday: Chapter 11 of Fire. What does the Mother have to tell Rayne? She’s so old and sick . . . can anything she says be trusted?

Elsewhere in my week:

I have another Scribe’s meeting tonight. Our normal schedule would make it next Monday, but as you know, if you’re in Canada, next Monday is Family Day so the library’s closed. Anyway, the topic is “pineapple” and so far my mind is blank.

I have to make time this week to visit one of our local coffee houses. They're currently displaying the paintings of a local artist and someone in my poetry group suggested we all take a look to see if we can come up with an Ekphrasic poem or two. An Ekphrasic poem is one that draws its inspiration from another work of art.

I'm not sure but I think there's a poetry reading scheduled for this week as well. Guess it would behove me to find out before I miss it.

If you’re on Twitter, then you’re already aware of the amazing number of links that get posted there. I already have too many sites bookmarked so what I thought I’d do is keep track of some of the ones I’ve found particularly useful/enjoyable/entertaining and post them on Tuesdays on Random Writings.

I still need to work on that pesky old focus issue. It’s getting a little better but it needs to get a lot more better before I’m happy with it. Of course it’s really just mind over matter. Ask anyone who’s been through cognitive therapy.

Again this week is looking a little light on the goals, but I’ll be filling in the gaps with the usual writing, editing, and reading. I’m still not quite at the point of setting proper writing goals instead of ‘get some done’ - maybe next week. ;-)

And that’s it for my week. How about you? Are you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day?

I'm not happy with you right now. My kindle was across the room in my purse at lunch, and beside my chair was the copy of "Dark Lover" you sent me. Read the first two chapters, and had to set it down...and now I can't stop thinking about the dang thing! *eyeroll* Did I mention I'm at work? And the digital version is just as expensive as print, so no point in buying a copy for my kindle? I have to suffer...suffer, I tell you, until tomorrow probably since it's Valentine's day and hubby expects my attention tonight! LOL


Oh yeah...good luck with your goals & poetry this week too. ;-)
