Change of Focus

Starting tonight, I'm going to crochet instead of working on writing.  I need to get a number of gifts made in the next month. 

This weekend I'll probably work on two manuscripts which are close to being done but during the week this week I'm going to either watch tv and crochet or listen to an audio book.  I have three Michelle Sagara books to catch up on.  I also have a ton of JD Robb and Nora Roberts audio books to read.  I'm sure there are other audio books I can listen to as well.

Interestingly, I was listening to Glory in Death and taking note of certain scenes and how she handled certain types of scenes.  I respect her as a writer so as I'm reading her books I'm also researching writing techniques. 

I guess as I'm listening to the books I'm also doing research on writing techniques.  It will be fun to read a book while I'm crocheting.  Two of my favorite activities will get done all at once. 

It is the whole NaNoWriMo but this month doesn't work for me.  I'll be working on crocheting this month.  I wonder if they have a craft project month?  I'm sure they do - they have a month for everything it seems. 

In all likelihood I'll still work on writing on the weekends.  I will go stir crazy if I don't write, especially since I'm almost done with three manuscripts.  Marketing will have to be a focus.  I need to promote more to a wider audience. 

So the plan - I'll see how well this one works - is to crochet and listen to audio books during the week.  Work on manuscripts on the weekend as well as crocheting and listening to audio books.  In the next month I have to finish a lot of presents, three manuscripts, and keep my sanity.  Well okay - the sanity is probably too much to hope for.  I'll have to see how the plan goes.

It was a good weekend.  Friday I left work to go to the doctor with Vicki.  We were forceful about her needing a different antibiotic.  She ...
