I’m in countdown mode on a few different fronts.
23 weeks to Surrey International Writers Conference. Several different things I need to accomplish before I can go to that.
22 weeks until Will’s birthday. Since his laptop is overheating badly, I am working on getting him a new one to take to Iraq.
13 weeks until I have to re-file my divorce petition if it isn’t finalized. I will be surprised if it is. Don is having more surgery done and I put everything on hold until his health improves so as not to stress him.
10 weeks until Will leaves for Georgia. After finishing a school there, they will ship to Iraq.
10 weeks until I move. I am putting most of my things in storage and moving into Will’s apartment so he doesn’t have to put his things in storage and worry about them while he’s gone. I will take some things with me, my antique trunks, desk, dining room set, since I am refinishing it, my antique buffet and my leather couch. I’m not really looking forward to moving, even as badly as I detest this apartment.
11 days until Barbara Rogan’s workshop starts and I still don’t have the synopsis done and I’m still shuffling Paladin around. I printed out all the chapters today and the snippets. I think, hope, I will find myself in better shape than I feared, but I still have to tackle the synopsis. I read through Miss Snark’s and copied off about a dozen good ones. Maybe something will click, but it hasn’t so far.
In the midst of this I am looking for a second job. Should be an interesting summer.
To say the least, I will be haunting blogs less. This is probably a good thing since I need industrial strength duct tape for my mouth anyway.
And as part of my new community service to provide interesting things to view, I am directing you to Pam. She is hilarious and if you haven’t checked her out, you need to.
