Wrap it Up Wednesday: Jan. 19

Well, I've decided that life is really chaotic. And I'm looking forward to the end of January. For the last several years, I have put together the taxes for a property management company. Not their taxes, but the tax reports for the properties they manage. It's time consuming and stressful. I only have two weeks this year to do everything for hundreds of accounts. That's why yesterday's post actually went up this morning, instead of yesterday. I'm a bite off more than you can chew kind of person, I guess.

How's the progress on my goals going? Well, as far as my schedule goes, I might just have to give up. At least for a few more weeks. Baby makes it interesting. She's been awake at 6:00 am two days in a row. Yay for mommy! She also wants to be help most of the time. Makes everything else hard. It's a good thing the two boys are so good. There's just too many things to do in the day.

I've got a better idea of the story outline, but still don't feel like I'm ready to start writing on it. I can't seem to find the MC's voice. He's eluding me. I've even toyed with the idea of making him a girl. I can do teenage girl. (After all, I was one, once upon a time.) I think there's more potential for the story with my boy MC, but if he doesn't fit into this story, I'm sure he'll find his way into a different one. So, still working on that.

So, goals for the coming week: keep working on story building. Finish taxes. There you have it.

How are things going in your neck of the woods, friends?

Hey Kayeleen- between doing hundreds of other people's taxes and death- I'd take death!

Good luck on your writing goals- I haven't been able to find my character's voices without just jumping in and starting to write, but I'm only working on my second novel right now, so there's a lot to learn. I have outlined this one, which seemed impossible to me before, but it actually helps. Although I have deviated on some major plot points, but I got to skip one draft that way;)

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. :)
