As it turns out, there's a lot of work that needed doing and I didn't get a chance to do it Tuesday. Wednesday I forgot about it entirely.
There isn't all that much to report. I'm still not writing anything, nor have I made any serious attempts at going through the edits for the second Avalon book. Title for the book and series are still pending. I have no idea what to title anything in this series.
I haven't received anything for The Lioness of Shara Mountain, which is just as well, as I don't seem to have the time for editing it at the moment.
No, I'm too busy trying to plan all my gifts for this year. For some inexplicable reason, I decided that I'm going to make all my gifts and... I'm an idiot. Hoy boy. There is just too much for me to do. I'm a twit. Why did I make the decision to do that? I have more eight... nine? Eight? (something like that) paintings to do... then several more repetitive things after that in order to finish the master of a gift that I'm giving to several people... and then I have to do more things to it to make the things usable. I'm being deliberately vague. Some of the gifts' recipients read this blog.
Happily, there are other things I can make from the same set of things, which are much more manageable to do, which takes care of a number of other gifts.
Then there's the gift that I've been meaning to make for someone for a couple of years now... first for a birthday, then Christmas, then a birthday... and now Christmas. I'm terrible.
Then there are more gifts which will require colourful air-dry clay and some other things. I don't have the things I need in order to make the gifts, but I better go find them quick-smart, because I am so far behind, I think I'm going to pull a muscle trying to catch up with it all. Which begs the question...
WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF?!
So that's the state of things. I'm frantically painting... sometimes very roughly (though there is one I'm particularly proud of. When the gifts are given, I'll post more about it). But whatever. I don't have time for perfectionism. I've got to get this done.
A good lesson, I think. And a good exercise to help me fight through a trait (perfectionism) that can be quite debilitating at times.
Alright, I have to go. I hope you're all well.
