Despite Computer Problems ...

In spite of not having a working computer since Mother's Day, I've actually managed to complete both my May goals.

1) Finish outline for my short vampire story.
Done and put away to gel.

2) Complete edits for Katie Rose.
Also done and put away, except for the chapter my critique group's just gone over.

While the computer problems did hold me back a bit, I'm feeling good that it didn't get in the way of those goals.

Now, I've got to come up with some goals for June.

Pulled In a New Direction

Well, I'm still working on my husband's computer, while mine sits gathering dust. I've completed the outline for my new short vampire story and have set it aside to gel.

I'm also working on those edits for Katie Rose. I'm getting near the end, and think I'll meet my end of the month deadline if nothing else happens to set me back.

I've also been approached by my critique group into writing a new short story for a Civil War romance anthology. Despite my plate being full, I just couldn't resist such a project.

I'm devoting this weekend to at least get a start on an outline for this new story.

Come Monday, I plan to get back to Katie Rose, but the diversion from editing will keep me fresh.

Technology - Arrrgh!

My brand new computer went down this week. It was only six months old.

Fortunately, it's not the end of the world. I had all my stuff backed up. So, I'm back to working on my husband's computer until mine gets fixed.

Since my old computer didn't have internet access, I was used to doing all that on his anyway. And since my new computer has MS Word instead of WordPerfect, I don't have to convert my files the way I used too.

So, all in all, I guess I can deal with this. It won't stop me from getting work done. But now I can't use my new laser printer, plus I've grown used to my new computer. I'll be glad when it's up and working once again.

Blogger's Updated

I just found Blogger did an update and I can do more things with my blog.

Time to play.

I just changed my links for my short story and review so you can just click on the picture and go right into the site. How cool!

I'll have to experiment more to see what else I can do, but I like it!

Goals for May

Writing goals, that is.

And here they are:

1) I want to complete the outline for my short vampire story, then put it away to gel for a bit before I start the first draft.

2) I want to start line edits on Katie Rose and, hopefully, complete them by the end of the month.

That's it for May. Let you know how I did.
