Week 2 Success

Write1Sub1 on or ahead of schedule: story number two, “How Cherry Coke Saved My Life” has been written, revised and submitted. It’s flash at 750 words, but is a quirky little science fiction story that just tickles me. Hope it does the same for some editor someplace. šŸ™‚

The novel is progressing, though not as quickly as I’d like. I’m not writing on it every day, but I should be. Now that I have my short story quota out of the way, I have more time to focus on the novel and the critiques I’ve got in progress. I also wrote two children’s stories, based on a story telling session with my daughter. One is called “No Dress Princess” and the other is “The Crystal Castle on Cinnamon Island”. Both require transcription, but they’re safely in my notebook. (And now that I said that, I won’t sleep well until they are safely transcribed and backed up in three places).

And it looks like I maintained my weight this week – which is fine since we went out for dinner one night and got take out another. I’ve been trying to keep up with the workouts and the water, but it’s been a serious focus week at work and my brain just plain fuzzed out on the health stuff. At least i didn’t go back to the cherry coke. šŸ™‚

Hope you had a great week, too.
