Well – it’s Monday again. Seems like it just was, but that could be due to most days blurring together. I’m still trying to knock some jobs off the to-do list around the house. I even washed blinds last week – I’m embarrassed to tell you how long it’s been since they were last cleaned. Let’s just say there were mini funnel clouds and a lot of sneezing going on.
I finally opened the file of the sequel to Subject A36. I hadn’t looked at it since NaNo in November, at first due to promoting the new release, then mostly because I haven’t felt like writing with everything going on in the world. But it was time. After setting aside a couple of hours yesterday to dive back in, I was excited. I still need to go over notes, pull everything together, and make my roadmap (my loose version of an outline). There’s a lot of work to do – guess it’s a good thing I’ve got some extra time, right?
I’m a Lego fan. After giving my six-year-old niece a Disney Princess set for her birthday last summer then helping her put it together, she declared me a Lego Master. It all started with my youngest son’s love of them. We spent hours building things together, including Hogwarts castle, which was thousands of pieces. While building, my mind was focused completely on the project, and it gave the rest of my brain a break. Months ago, a couple of friends and I had planned a Lego and wine night. For whatever reason, we never got it on the calendar, but I still had my kit – Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. Several days ago, I took it out, turned on my audiobook, and spent a very happy couple of hours snapping pieces together and applying decals. How do you like it? Sorry the pic’s not better. Hubby got me a Star Wars collection for Christmas, so that’s on the agenda for this week.
Take care and stay healthy!
