Before I disappear for the weekend again (Mom talked me into going on a ladies’ retreat), I thought I should at least post a little something.
I’m making some headway with getting the outline for Widow Walk (working title) together before NaNoWriMo begins. I decided to try the Snowflake Method of novel writing (thanks to Bonnie for the suggestion and link). Yesterday whilst I worked the Friends of the Library booksale (a wonderful little biannual event), I got the first two steps finished. It really is an easy little method to use. We’ll see how well I can follow it from step 3 onward.
I’m planning on bringing the book to work on during free time–at least I’ll be getting caught up on something this weekend. So much for my intention of crossing things off my project list while Memere is here to play with the grandbaby. Sigh. Mom’s been here a week and I’ve gotten all of 2 things done (other than the usual weekly chores). I still have 1 duvet cover, 1 baby quilt, and 1 pair of pants to stitch up. Plus going over An Uncivilized Yankee for the umpteenth time. A friend edited the hard copy and I’ve got to transfer her comments to the soft copy. And write up the synopsis. Plus sorting through Punkin’s clothes and figuring out what she needs for winter. Plus finishing my wedding scrapbook and starting Jillian’s baby book. Ack! Ack! And double Ack!
Sigh. Is there somewhere I can buy a few extra hours so I can get some of this stuff done?
