After two weeks of spring break in Kiawah Island, SC I have a bit of a hangover… but not in the I consumed too much alcohol way, LOL. I’m just out of the swing of normal life!
I did writerly things… mainly volunteering for the Washington Romance Writers annual retreat as the editor agent pitch coordinator. It was the first year we’ve done it virtually, and while I believe it was a success, I can’t lie that it was chaotic and consumed a lot of time.
I’ve learned my lesson–I am the WORST about overcommitting, and this plus the Vivian judging kind of put me over the top. I didn’t realize it’d all hit in one week, and at the same time as having to oversee virtual schooling for my 6-year-old and host family in our condo.
Such is life–and I definitely feel that I made some good writer friends through it all so it was worth it. But NOW… I have to get after it. So I’ve been revisiting all my goals and timelines to see what’s doable. I still intend to output my full trilogy this calendar year… but the editing will have to push into next year. So sad. NOT! (And now I’ve aged myself… again.)
Next week, I’ll check-in and let you know if I stuck to my deadlines to hold myself accountable publicly!
