Cross Off My Todo List Items

It's done!  Wayfarer 9 is complete in the rough draft stage.  I sat at my computer yesterday, forgot to eat, worked on it for hours, ignored my phone and most other distractions and got 33,000 words done.  After 22 hours being up I sent off the rough draft to my test readers who can now stop nagging me.

When I sent it, I was in the "I'm done with this project and I don't like it" stage.  My daughter always gives me grief over this because generally I'm okay with how things turned out, it's just I don't have enough distance to be objective.

I slept from 6:30 this morning until 9:00 which was a little disappointing as I would have liked a little more sleep.  I dozed until after 11:00 so I'm getting a slow start to the day.

I've gotten a bunch of admin work done.  I got my sales spreadsheet updated.  At some point, I'm going to shower and eat - maybe before Ken gets home.  Today I want to work on updating four through seven of the Wayfarer series so I can take this task off my todo list.

Since I'm working on such little sleep, I'll probably nap at some point.  You never know.  I may get some inspiration and work on Defenders 3 as that is the next project I want to tackle.  I may just lounge about reading what I have done before I tackle the next stages of the novel.

I'm giving myself today and tomorrow to work on it.  Saturday I'm hoping to talk Ken into a movie (or two) and Sunday I have mom coming over for a bit.  I don't know if I can finish Defenders in one day but I'm going to see how it goes and hope Wayfarer 10 stays out of my head until I'm done.

I also want to tackle the edits for 8, production on short stories, and a crochet pattern I'm midway through.  The list never ends.
