Wednesday Writer’s Update

Holy crap it’s Wednesday, huh? Yeah that’s what I thought about five minutes ago. I’m not at cafe. But this was a planned pass. I went out Monday with the ladies from write in to send off one of our own in style (extended sabbatical not death). And since I had plans Tuesday as well (Cinebarre=alcohol and a movie with a different group of ladies), there was no way I could pull off three nights in a row. My husband would lose it. LOL

So what am I doing with my planned evenings of relaxation? ROFL. Wild guess and the first two don’t count. Yes, I am indeed doing crap for the club. Let me fill you in on the drama. Last Saturday two fine, upstanding, mature members of the club decided to get into a fist fight at the pool. Yes, you read that right. The police were called. Civil allegations are flying. We as a board are trying to stay out of it, other than to send a nice letter reminding them that swearing, pushing, and name calling are against pool rules-don’t do it again.

But the police want the video. The problem with this is multifaceted.

A) no one on the board even knew if the camera system still worked

B) no one knew where the recording device physically lived until yesterday

C) the remote control is broken which means you can’t use the search function

D) this means you have to rewind to where you want to view. In this case five days ago now. At it’s fab rewind rate of 5 minutes per hour of video, I’ll be going back to the club house, climbing the world’s ricketiest ladder into the attic, at about 1030 tonight, to see if the cameras even caught the incident.

Don’t you want to be me? I live the most exciting life.

I’ve decided to report on my stated 2016 goals each Wednesday for a little prod of accountability.

– Participate in one flash fiction challenge per month.

√ Bwahahahahhaha

– Prepare and teach “Nano to Publish”.

√ Yeah. Class is this Saturday due to some library reschedule fun. At least I’m not sick this time.

– Any time I am not actively working on my 2015 Nano Novel, write 2500 words per week on my spy novel until it is done. (After four years, it’s time to put this mess to bed.)

√ I still haven’t dove into my beta but I can see it as a possibility, soon.

Non writing goals

– Prepare and teach two classes at the coop for the 2016-2017 school year.

√ Actually doing some work on this. Highlighting Guns, Germs, and Steel like I have stock in Sharpie.

– Take better care of my body, ie. stop compulsively painting, crocheting, and writing until my back or shoulder is so tore I can barely use either.

√ Actually my back is tore. I’ve been painting the house lately. And my lower back objects.

– yoga daily.

√ er, every other day this last week.
