With regard to writing, I typed out 13567 words this past week. I'm looking ahead a month and don't know whether I can get the rest of this done by mid-September. Well, I might have the words all typed, but I'll still need to go back and polish it before I let anyone see it, so I won't totally be breaking my promise. This just took way longer than I thought it would. But it is so much better than it was before already, so that's a win. =o)
In polishing news, I'm down to just under 104K and halfway through the book in the line-by-line tightening. I wish I was farther along, but I slacked off on that part.
I'm also not making any progress in the research category. No offense to them what love Mallory, but he's long-winded and I haven't the patience for him in my more advanced years. The last time I read Le Morte d'Arthur I was in my teens. Young with my scads of time. (Probably skipped doing homework to read the book - cuz that was how I rolled, baby.)
I did work on the driveway drainage thing a bit this week. We got like 2.3 inches of rain one afternoon, and it showed me exactly where the flaws were so I could correct them. (It was like a freakin' river out there.) I think I've got it mostly corrected, but I won't know for sure until the next big rain. And who knows when that'll be. :shrug: Even if it is fixed, I still have cosmetic work to do - because right now, it's functional, but ugly as hell. LOL
As I said Friday, I've also written several blog posts that will never see the light of day. Long and ranty. That's not the positivity I've been going for - either here or in my real life - so screw it. Still, writing those posts helps get the poison out of my head so I can face the day without wanting to hide under my bed from all the crap going on in the world.
How were things in your world last week?
