And December Goals, of course!
Here was November’s one big goal:
And here’s how I did:
Yee Hah! I wrote a 50,000 word novel in just under 30 days. I actually finished a little early, on Monday. It’s not ready for prime time by a long shot, so don’t even think of asking to read it. I am sort of jazzed up about writing again, so I might continue to work on it. Right at the moment, I’m ready to drown all my characters in the Atlantic Ocean. For those of you who have always wanted to write a novel, I would highly encourage you to try this next year. It’s loads of fun, and at the end of the month you end up with a rudimentary first draft.
I also managed to get myself to work every day that I was supposed to, I showered and slept, and I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner of gargantuan proportions for 11 people. For those of you on the edge of your seat about the gluten free gravy and how that worked out; I ended up using brown rice flour to make a roux for the gravy base. I made both varieties of gravy base the night before, and the brown rice version needed to be re-thickened with cornstarch, but otherwise it worked just fine.
Very little knitting or spinning took place, though I’m almost finished with that first mitten from the previous post.
So, December Goals:
Continue to write.
Finish the grey mittens, my hands are cold.
Get a grip on the True Blood Faery sweater sleeve problem. I need to mostly MacGyver the whole thing, so I might need some whiskey. I may not finish it, but I am going to figure out what to do with it.
That’s it. It’s December, the month of endless holiday nonsense and very long to-do lists. I’m not over-extending here. I’m off to dance around with my winner’s certificate a bit.
