I'm wiped out! I think I need a nice long vacation once this month is over. Things over at Casa de Kelly have been super busy between edits, keeping up with NaNo and write-ins and potlucks and what's that other thing...? Oh yeah, the day job.
So here's the lowdown on what all has been going on:
First off, the edits on Brimstone: I managed to get as much done as possible and get it in shape for the Golden Heart. There are still other changes that I want to make before sending it off to Berkley, but I had to pare down what I wanted to do in order to meet the GH deadline. December I'll spend editing the rest so I can send it off to Berkley in January.
Salvation Falls / NaNoWriMo: I had to write 3,000 words last week to stay on track. I managed to do this all in one sitting at our Wednesday write in at Starbucks. Whew! We have another one scheduled for this coming Wednesday. I have just under 5,000 words left to go and with Brimstone off to the GH, I can spend next week devoted to NaNo before I jump back into Brimstone revisions.
The Annual RWAC Potluck: We had our annual potluck today and I am soooo stuffed. Lots of great food. Our chapter year-end potluck is always a great time. We do a Yankee gift grab with books which is lots of fun, and we had some presentations to make and book draws for chapter members' new releases and did some 2008 goal-setting. It was my last meeting as El Presidente and while I'm glad it's over after four years on the executive, I have to admit, it's going to be a little weird going to a meeting as a regular member. I've been on the executive since a few months after I joined the chapter (they sucked me in early before I knew what was what!).
Work-outs and Weight Loss: I sort of fell off the wagon here in the past month. Things were so busy and I had a hard time moving my work-outs from walks outside to treadmill inside. Finally I broke down yesterday and picked up a new workout DVD that had two 30 minute workouts on it. It's Shape's Bikini Body Boot Camp. I watched it last night to see what I was in store for and the work-outs may only be 30 minutes, but they look really killer. If nothing else, it might make me like the treadmill a whole lot more. Either way, I need to buckle down. The office Christmas party is this coming Friday and I have to make sure I still fit into that little black dress.
And - my Rescue Dawn DVD showed up in my mailbox on Friday. Woo hooo!!! I watched the extra features on Friday and tonight I'm going to hunker down and watch the movie itself.
By the way, I'll be blogging over at Miss Make A Movie on Wednesday, so swing by and check it out. No idea what I'll be talking about. I'm hoping an idea strikes me sometime between now and then...
