I hesitate to use the word normal because I don't consider myself normal but I guess I could qualify it as normal for me.
This week has been busy with work and writing. I'm neck deep in a manuscript (Wayfarer 7) and working towards finishing it. I'm also attempting to get some editing done which thinking of all the aspects of all the novels related to whatever I'm editing. Since one is a prequel to Wayfarer, this means I have to keep in mind all the things that have happened in the books since and how they relate to the prequel. I've also got a murder mystery novel to edit and the first edits (search and replace) for the sixth Wayfarer novel.
Edits inevitably lead to the need for a cover. I have the prequel one done and will be doing an event to share the cover. I worked with TJ Jahns to get the cover going on the murder mystery. I'm hoping she will come back with a cover for me to use. It still leaves me with a cover to make for Wayfarer 6 which I still don't have a title for yet but I'm working on it. I have one in my head, I just have to think it over and decide if I like it.
I started one of the crochet projects I need to get done. I've got the new JD Robb book Obsession in Death to listen to so I may take a break (once I'm done with 7) and listen to that while I work on the crochet project.
This weekend I'm working on taxes for people and helping my uncle with some paperwork. It promises to be busy and possibly frustrating. I was going to work on my own taxes but then I got notified that two or three of the forms I got were wrong. I believe I will get the corrected forms next week - I hope so at least.
To do list - marketing of Wayfarer (on sale)
finish writing Wayfarer 7
Editing three manuscripts
Crochet gifts - student workers, wedding, baby, Virginia's afghan
Read new JD Robb
Taxes for people and paperwork for my uncle.
These are just the things I need to do by Saturday or Sunday. I hope I can get them all done. Ken's back home so I'm less productive though he is very understanding and gives me lots of time and space to do what I need to. Still I sort of like spending time with my husband. Seems like if he's around and in the house, I could maybe spend some time with him.
Oh and I have season 5 of Downton Abbey. I wanted to watch it this next weekend but I don't think that's going to happen. If I get all of my to do list done maybe I can do it next weekend. I can work on crocheting while I watch.
