It was another busy week around here! My husband was away all week in London, which meant I was on my own with the kids. Normally, this doesn't bother me too much. My kids are bigger now and pretty self-sufficient. They have lots of things they like to do to keep themselves busy including school, homework, YouTube, outside play, and games. But handling everything every day was hard. Usually I get a little break in the evening once my husband is home, to sit and many have a glass of wine while he gets the kids in the shower and off to bed. When he's gone I do all of that and more, so by the time Friday rolled around and he was back home, I was DONE.
I thought I would get a lot of writing done this week but I was wrong. I wanted to work on a novella that will come after Daydreamer 2 (it'll be Daydreamer 3 but shorter than the rest, as my goal for the series is to do: novel, novel, novella, novel, novel, novella…) but I always struggle with the beginning of a story until I hit my stride so I only got about 5k written. Plus, I struggled a lot with Dragon Dictate. Sigh. Always something with Dragon! I decided to instead concentrate on updating old blog posts on my website which took up a lot of time every day. I plan to use all the old content on my website to help promote myself, so making sure it's in tip-top shape is a priority. I've gone back and updated titles, updated images, and links in old posts all week long. It's been a lot of work but it'll be worth it in the long run.
What else happened this week?
New floors went in in the kitchen! Yes, we're having hardwood floors in the kitchen. I'm so looking forward to that. No more tile!
I enjoyed the outdoor weather by eating lunch outside.
My husband brought back this fancy spiced gin from the UK. Mmmm, tastes great in a G&T!
I have another busy week ahead of me. I have a blog post going up tomorrow about compiling from Scrivener to Createspace PDF, I'm participating in the New Adult Scavenger Hunt this week, I have tons of packages to send out, and I have a post on my Top 5 Favorite Traditional Japanese Foods coming up! Stay Tuned!
