Well, I'm a busy little bee.
For one, it keeps me too busy to spend much time in my own gloomy head, which is a always nice relief. Right now, I'm too busy for unhappy thoughts. During the day, I've divided my time between Welsh lessons, writing Daughters of Britain and until recently, Beta Reading for two different authors. With the Beta Reading done, I've started work on Sky Road Walker. That's the working title for the Your Very Own Adventure project, for those not in the know.
There is actually a fair amount of editing and rewriting required for Sky Road Walker, mostly because I'm changing it from Second Person, present tense to First Person, past tense. Also because... Holy typos, Batman! Wow. In any case, I'm working on it at last, and that'a great feeling. If I continue at the pace I'm going with it, I should be finished fixing it up in roughly forty-four days - about a month and a half. My complete stab in the dark yesterday was actually highly accurate. Go me!
I'm also continuing my write of Daughters of Britain. I had a fantastic writing day yesterday, making well over two thousand words in my two hours of writing designated writing time. It cheered me up a little, even though the scene I wrote was essentially my main character having a breakdown. Poor thing. She's been through a lot. Happily, the man she had a breakdown in front of is something of a gentle giant.
Where was I? Oh, right...
Yes, I'm ridiculously busy still, but it's been actually quite good thus far. I almost always manage to reach my modified writing goal for these busy times (a thousand words), and often exceed it. Yay.
So it's good, but alas there are other projects that I need to get started soon. I promised myself this year that I'd start on the audio book versions of my books. I haven't had the time to do it yet, and it's grating on my a bit. I also wanted to do more drawing and painting, which I haven't had time for at all. That bothers me, not least of all because there are four paintings I need to do for other people as gifts that I haven't even started. These gifts are long overdue. Gah!
I am a little overwhelmed. Hopefully it'll all work out. If I can not irritate myself to death over the projects I haven't started yet, I might be able to get to recording the audio books after I'm done editing/rewriting Sky Road Walker. It's only a month and a half a way. I can manage that, right? As for drawing/painting... well... I will try and figure a way. One of these days.
Alright. Since I have so much to do, I really should get on with it.
