Rushing Through Monday

I'm late to blog this morning. See, I've been fighting this cold that wants to take over my body and after downing some meds before bed last night, I overslept. You know how cold medicine can be - that druggy feeling that adds about 1000 mental pounds to you? Nearly impossible to get up and get functioning like a normal human.

Anyway, that's how my Monday started, but I'm determined it's not how my Monday is going to end. I've got too much to do.

1. Write 6 pages in my novella, Blood Of The Maker.
2. Judge 2 of the 5 contest entries sitting on my desk.
3. Go for 45 min. walk.
4. Fold one basket of laundry.

That's enough for one day. This needs to be a BIG productive writing week for me. My weekly goal is to finish the novella, which means at least 30 pages of new writing, then layering, editing and polishing the thing so I can get it sent to my agent. I've also got broad edits to do on the book I sold to Samhain, ALL FIRED UP.

Busy, busy week. What about you?


  1. Busy week. Get better soon. The usual craziness for me too.

  2. Ugh, I hate that drugged-brain feeling. I hope you get better soon.

    Monday for me means doing some agent research, exercising, errands, schooling, and writing for at least an hour tonight.

  3. Anonymous10:29 AM

    I have laundry overflowing EVERYWHERE. To the laundromat for me. And the fun never ends!

  4. I get that feeling if I take a Tylenol PM too late at night too. Yuck.

    No solid plans this week for me - just workity work work, and keep my eyes on Friday!

  5. I hear you on the writing! I need to get some pages done too. Have fun judging the contest entries. I just got mine entries back...eek! Like you said, a crapshoot. :-)

  6. Busy week for me too. I've got a lot of writing to catch up on. Hope you feel better! I know all about meds and colds...all you want to do is snuggle under the covers!

  7. I hope you feel better!! This week isn't as hectic as last and my cold went bye-bye thank goodness. But I really need to get back to writing...

  8. I hope you get better soon. A cold can really sap your energy.

  9. Like Cyndi, it's all about the laundry for me. Gotta catch up now that the leak in the basement is fixed. I would be happy to complete another chapter on my WIP of the week [or better yet, to settle on ONE WIP to work on until it's finished.]
