Friday Already?

Once again the week flew by, thank goodness! This gets me one step closer to a fun filled (crazy) summer and then the fall. I can't wait for the fall. For the first time in sixteen years I will be at home with NO CHILDREN during the day!

Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, but think of the writing I can get done. Hopefully the biggest edits for Sendek: The Magic Wakes will be almost finished by that point, but I don't really know. I guess it depends on how blind am to the true faults in my story. However, if they are finished I can put everything into finishing book two Orek: The Search for Knowledge and get a detailed outline of Battle for Sendek on paper by the end of the year. That's what I would LIKE to accomplish, but we all know how life happens.

All of that is taking for granted that Faerie Wings will be finished and beta read by one or two people BEFORE the end of summer.

Do you think its weird that I've set writing goals for the entire year already?

Well, here is the week in review:
Work on Faerie Wings I did add another 1500 words, not as much as I wanted to do. There have just been to many other things to do. Most of that 1500 words were dialogue. Funny how much I love writing descriptions, but when I write, I write the dialogue first and then fill in around it.
Finish writing the short story I started Finished and submitted. I probably should have had someone read it first. :)

Prepare and teach all my lessons this week--not last minute I even made an awesome powerpoint for one of them.

Visit two families that I need to Check, and I made homemade bread for them and another family. I really do enjoy serving others, even if I complain about it. Perhaps a goal for next week should be "less complaining".
All that housekeeping stuff that doesn't go away Eh, maybe 80% on this one?
Make eye appointments for everyone--I keep forgetting this one
Run Um, failure. I ran once. Tonight should be interesting. Good thing I already planned to stay with my 5 year old. ;)
Run a 5k with my family Friday night--This is happening no matter what.

And finally, another song that speaks volumes to me and one of my characters right now.


  1. I have my writing goals set for the year, so I don't think it's odd.

  2. Oh my heavens, Charity you are so organized. I'm so excited for Sendek. I sent out my sequel to beta readers and it got ripped to shreds like barracudas in a shark tank. I'll be months figuring out what to do. Hopefully your edits will be easier than mine. Mine are painful lol. When Sendek comes out I really want you to count me in on your blog tour. Oh and I recently learned how to make gifs of my own using a YouTube tutorial. I can't do extremely fancy ones...but if you need one that flashes three or four panes/images as a way to help market your book I will do it for free :))

    1. YOU ARE AWESOME! I hope you know that Michael. I should finish Slipstream by tonight too. As soon as we get back from celebratory pizza. There are so many good things I can talk about in my review.

      I'm sorry the edits are so hard. I think my second book will be tons worse than Sendek. I've had three years to work on the first book but will have to work faster on this second one. It should be very interesting. I'm hoping that the years of "stewing" on the whole story will help in the long run.

  3. I don't think it's weird to set writing goals for the year. I'd do it, but I know I won't meet them.

    1. I'm really hoping that by knowing what I want to accomplish I will do it. If nothing else I figure I'll get more done than if I didn't have a plan. :)

  4. Goals are good. Short, medium and long term. Fail to plan, plan to fail.
