And so it's Monday again.

*yawn* Which do you suppose is louder? The dog that is barking at 5AM, or the woman who is trying to shut him up? My poor neighbors.

I had a pretty good week last week. I finally managed some words yesterday, so that was awesome, and I bought my plane tickets for my upcoming vacation. Which is of note because it has been over twelve years since I had a 'go somewhere' vacation. It's exciting that it's close enough to count, but... grrr It's still 7 months away. So anyway, yeah, I spent yesterday morning getting caught up on my words for the month! I'm feeling ahead of the game for the next day or so.

This week, well I hope to get more words done, there are a couple of weekend challenges I need to catch up on, and thanks to a MASSIVE GROUP EFFORT we have Bingo Cards. So there are all kinds of creative projects to do!

I am so enamored of this Comm! Someone puts up a 'hi, I need help' and people come out of the woodwork to offer, to support, or to even just give internet *hugs*. Someone says 'hi, i did a thing' and again the woodwork opens up with congratulations and happy dances. This is such a beautiful thing! I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR! I hope you all know how awesome you are!

I'm going to go finish my coffee and peruse the Bingo Cards. What are you all up to this week?

I haven't been writing as much as I'd like so far for this month, but that's mainly because I have so many things to do other than writing. :/ BUT, I did edit a short fic yesterday and posted it. I still have one more to go at least for this month but I am happy that I am done with something.

My main goal is surviving work...we had some personnel issues here last week and are thus down 1 person. This means more work on both me and the director...so not fun times.

But...I think I have a 3 day weekend coming up (unless the boss decides we'll work presidents day...) so that will leave more time for writing, maybe starting my homework project for class, maybe putting up a shelf that I've been procrastinating doing...and watching more Daredevil (which I just started and am rather enamored over at the moment)
And I just might put some of the bingo cards/prompts to use...

3 day weekend sounds necessary.

BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!

And your poor neighbors probably understand (I hope). Dogs bark, moms yell. :D

Hooray for words though! I'm behind for the month, but with the bingo I should be golden. :D

Thank you! Managed a little over 2k words yesterday, cutting my deficit down by a good chunk. Finished my A to Z 'C' and got a good start on a new chapter. YAY!

THANK YOU!

(I thought about that icon earlier... I downloaded a new scrap kit with all kinds of neat alphas in it...)

Yesterday was literally the first day I've written all month, and it was only 600 words. But I'm hoping to get a lot done this week and get back on track. I did so well in January; I don't want to mess it up so soon in February!

And heh. I can relate to that dog story. Though it's usually more 2 in the morning than 5 in the morning xD

I had a long weekend, and really I just slacked off. I feel bad - I had a fic to beta and could have done words too, but I didn't do either thing. I did shop and do housework (both needed), but honestly, the rest of time I pretty much just veged in front of Hemlock Grove S2 (which is now done with, so I should be able to get onto other things that should be done!) and played sudoku, for the most part. VERY SLACK.

So this week I need to get some words done, that fic beta'd, and then just generally settle into the new year of school ffor my kids and their routine.

Now, if the next 7 months would just go by a little faster...

Sometimes, slacking is medically necessary. *hugs*

7 months 5 days!!!!
