I have to admit something... I completely forgot about today's post. Normally I write it the night before and schedule it to post, but it slipped my mind entirely. I've been a bit busy recently, so I'm going to use that as my excuse ;)
--I did write over the past week but I didn't meet my goal. I'm bummed about it, but there's not much I can do now. Some words are better than no words (or so I keep telling myself). It's a new week, so hopefully I'll make it this time =)
--I actually looked at my query letter for AHR yesterday. I've technically already written it, but I decided to tweak it a bit. Now I'm really happy with it. When I wrote my first novel, Warrior Branded, the query letter was the most difficult part for me. It took three weeks of solid work before I was happy with it. Needless to say I wanted to avoid that aggravation this time around, so I worked on it before I even started the story. It might need to change... but I'm already 30K in and the story is going in the same direction, so maybe not!
--I attempted to read two books this week. Unfortunately, they both ended up being busts. I'd heard such good things about them, but sometimes you can't trust Amazon reviews!
--Again, we're still doing obedience training with Powell. Last night's session was a bit difficult (Powell was sleepy and didn't want to pay attention), but other than that he's been an excellent student.
--This isn't really a goal per se, but my parents booked their tickets to come down for a week in February! I'm so excited! We'd been scouring the internet for a good deal, which took up a lot of time, but my mum finally came across some at a relatively good price. Now I'll need to get the spare room ready for them (we need a box spring for the bed)!
This weekend my husband and I went to see Silver Linings Playbook starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. It was really good. I highly recommend it for everyone, but especially artistic people. It looks at mental illness and "weird" people in a very humorous, realistic light.
So how was your week? Any exciting news?
