When I Put My Mind to It


The Heart of Winter in New York State, from MorgueFile
Yep, somewhere the first month sashayed out the door to be replaced by the month of love. Aphrodite and Cupid, chocolates and flowers. Okay, that's laying it on a bit thick. It's February and I am 1 month and 2 days from my shows opening night. Yowsa! The cast is coming along wonderfully. I get excited for rehearsals. And then there are all the other little things that also need get done, posters, promotions, bios, directors letter, raffles, etc. Not all of it is done by me, oh no. Thankfully I have an awesome team!

Anywho...I did well on my goals, mostly; see for yourself, Dear Readers.

This week:
     *Social Media/Visiting: even though I missed Monday, I still visited my daily goals worth on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (8 visits = 4 for Monday and 4 for Today).
     *Blogging: posted yesterday, you can read here. I reviewed my January goals and thus wrote about them. Turned out a pretty productive month overall.
     *Reading: finished The Clockwise Man by Justin Richards (Doctor Who adventure), returned to reading The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer. I had started it back when I bought it, but got side-tracked with Doctor Who novels and Neil Gaiman books.
     *Writing: been a bit slack on this, but I wrote out my January goals and progress, so I made my daily writing goal for Tuesday.
     *Submitting: Nothing new. I submitted a piece of flash fiction on February 1st.

For this Week:
     *Novel: work on the small fixes and complete them by Sunday for The Real Road Trip.
     *Reading: finish The Art of Asking and make more progress with Windhaven (George R. R. Martin and Lisa Tuttle) and start Stardust (Neil Gaiman).
     *Writing: Wednesday through Saturday. This includes writing the bios and directors letter.
     *Submitting: 1 submission this week.
     *Blogging: blog 1 day this week.
     *Editing: print up pieces for critique partner.
     *Theatre Stuffs: will update progress on Sunday.

A Round of Words in 80 Days in a blog challenge where you set some goals and report on them twice a week. It's a Blog Hop, come on in and set a spell!

What books are you reading, Dear Readers? I seem to read more in the winter's months, it seems to keep the Winter Blues away. Also, I am involved in theatre goodness, directing a production of Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. What else do you do to beat the Winter Blues?


  1. Ah, another upstater! I thought you must be in NY or New England from your picture. It seems as though you are progressing well on your goals so far. I am not *blushes*.

    I read a lot in the winter, as well as do a lot of needlework. There's nothing like knitting or quilting to keep one cozy. If it is one of those nice post-snow days, I like to walk and enjoy the winter wonderland.

    1. Yeppers, I'm a slogging through it and convinced that my feet will never stay dry until Spring! :-)
