It’s October

Thursday, October 1, 2009

pumpkinToday is October 1 and that means one thing: MTCW Marathon Month. That also means that I’m only two months away from the deadline for Ransome’s Honor and, as per my usual M.O., I barely have a third of the book written. So, something’s gotta give.

Instead of bypassing freelance opportunities (a girl’s got to eat) this month, I’m going to be cutting back on other things that take up big chunks of my time. Like writing long, involved blog posts every day. I’m going to continue the church/singles ministry posts—but in a new feature on Sundays (I’ll figure out a name for that). I also already have some Fun Friday posts in the pipeline.

All of that is to say that I will most likely be writing new blog posts every day—but they’ll probably be shorter and more focused on my writing or interesting tidbits of research I discovered or just silly randomness to give myself a mental break. Oh, and I’ll be reporting my daily word count as well.

So here’s a challenge to you. October has 31 days. What can you accomplish by making something a daily practice for each day of this month?

    Declutter my house. Its horrid. I’m trying to have the energy to get stuff done, but I just don’t have it. I’m actually taking four hours off on Friday to get some work done. I figure if I work in the morning I won’t be tempted to sleep in but I’ll still have the energy to get some stuff accomplished. If it works, I may ask for a couple more half days between now and the end of the year (we were just blessed to get 2 extra days off this year – probably because no one is getting raises – but I’m very proud of my company for stepping up and doing something for us!)

    First draft of my wip. Better have made a BIG dent by the end of October. One of my crit partners just gifted me in such a way as to remove one of my major excuses, having something other than a notebook to write in, and I’ve got an outline so it seems that I should be able to move forward.

    Maybe I should exercise everyday…that way I can keep warm without turning the thermostat up! 😛

    My mother tells me I like to correct people too much. Guilty as charged.

    You’re working on Ransome’s CROSSING not Ransome’s HONOR right?

    Feel free to point out some of my gross grammar errors in one of my blog posts (you’ll probably find plenty) as revenge.

    Oh… and GET WRITING Kaye!!!!
