A Round of Words starts up again today. I’ve decided to pass on this session mainly because I’m not actually writing anything. Although, check-ins at least got me to blog regularily. I’m still transcribing the results of my editing on BD&L back into a word document. I’ll still breeze by the other ROWers and show my support for the efforts toward hitting their goals. If you’d like to check them out, here’s the day one link.
And I should clarify my “not writing” statement. I do write, constantly, but at this point it’s more about keeping the muscles in shape as I’m not working on any specific thing beyond BD&L. Rather like using a treadmill instead of actually getting out and walking to a certain location. Although I do have another Greyland’s bit I’m working on for Krista’s endeavor — and a shout out to check out the new Raven’s Quill site. It’s fun being in someone else’s world, a little scary as well since I don’t want to veer too much from the original vision and only add to it, but the darn character that took me over has his own ideas.
Then there are the two books I need to read and review. I’m half way through Captives, Book 2 in The Druids Saga by Barb Galler-Smith and Josh Langston. The second book waiting in the wings is Show Dog by Josh Dean. I’m a bit behind.
Oh, and this past weekend I tackled my office/studio. I have three projects languishing and others I’m itching to start, but the organized chaos I adore has become disorganized clutter. I’m only half done but I have to reclaim my space because it’s awesome, and when I’m in it people understand I’m working (by ‘people’ I mean the hubby). I understand I’m working. Sitting at the kitchen counter or plopped on the couch with the laptop leaves me open to distractions, and obviously means I’m available to jump into a conversation at any time. The filing cabinet alone took most of a day andbroke my paper shredder. I made it half way through the closet, which I’ll finish this week. Those two areas were the worse and once I’m through those it’s clear sailing.
