Writing Life Update~Different Layout

Since I’ve been negligent about posting updates each week about what I’ve been working on, I figured a different format to catch everyone up would be the easiest option.

19 June 2019

*Wrote 304 words for Bobbin Lace Pattern instruction

5 July 2019

*Added 1350 words to Fundraiser Dinner short story

6 July 2019

*Wrote Heartbreak Under the Texas Stars short story; 1366 words

I’m on a roll with writing several days in a row and I hope to keep it up for as long as possible. Some of these short stories will become the Patreon monthly story.

I AM writing which is great! I’ve been really inspired lately and it’s taking me no time at all to get a couple hundred to over a thousand words written.

Writing Life Update June 2019

What have I been working on?

  1. Filling in my Food Calendar with the National Food Days for a non-fiction project.
  2. Filled in remaining blank spots in Knitting Stories list.
  3. Turned Knitting Story titles into A-Z list.

What’s in Edits right now?

Same stuff as always, but I’m not in an editing mood right now.

Publication Research:

Picked out 5 publishers to write proposals for 4 different non-fiction projects.

Anything submitted?

Nope. Getting all that together. Haven’t heard from anyone either.

Anything Else to Share?

Obviously didn’t touch the Bobbin Lace workbook or the March Patreon. I need to make one more MTAOFC recipe for research purposes.

Plans for the Week:

  1. Finish filling in Food Calendar
  2. Make final MTAOFC recipe
  3. Make files and create docs for all submission packets.

Here’s an update on my goals. I got more done in January than I thought I would, considering how crazy my life got in January. I already knew my work schedule was going to be different, because I decided to take a class on Nutritional Anthropology. On top of this, one of the librarians I worked with got a new job over our Christmas Break, and put her two weeks’ notice in when we returned to work. I’ve been helping cover some of her hours until her replacement is hired.

Okay, so after that long rambling introduction, here are my January targets for meeting my goals and how I did with them:

Journal Prompts Book:

  • Delete duplicates———-completed 1/7/2016
  • Create Chicago citations—–changed mind, and decided to do an acknowledgement page instead
  • Assign End Note characters——no longer needed
  • Finish categorizing (added later)

Bobbin Lace Workbook:

  • Work through the instructions—forgot I had a started bookmark and need to finish that one because I can work through the instructions properly.

Recipe Book:

  • Write out 5 recipes—-completed 1/17/2016

Genealogy Workbook:

  • Work out what needs to be written—–completed 1/3/2016

eBay Shop:

  • Continue write ups and pictures—setting a goal of 5 a month, but I didn’t make it happen.
  • Type and upload what you have—-completed 1/19/2016

ETSY:

  • List sweater and other specialty items—-I DID get this stuff listed last night after I filmed by video. Completed 1/31/2016

Amazon:

  • Do more seller research—this will be ongoing, but I’ve learned that Amazon is best for books. Completed 1/31/2016

Craft Shows:

  • Knit Little Royals baby blanket—completed 1/3/2016

YouTube Channel:

  • Film 5 videos in January—I actually filmed 10 videos in January, so I’m really proud of myself for that.

Blog:

  • Brainstorm more post ideas—-I did this early on and came up with two dozen blog post ideas, some planner related, and some not. Completed 1/9/2016

Cooking thru the Book:

  • Make a list of needed equipment and software with the approximate cost—-I made the decision to shelve this project for the time being. I do not have the time to devote to setting this new blog and YouTube channel up at this time.

That was January! And here’s what I’m hoping to accomplish in February:

  1. Journal Prompts Book
