Hello, I didn’t mean to disappear for so long!
August flew by faster than all the summer months combined! Thank God he pulled me through. I kept telling myself eat the elephant one bite at a time: so many projects and deadlines.
The first was August 3rd, my sister had a gig, and I was her last-minute drummer player. I’m the worst she could have gotten, but it was fun lol.
I believe we only practice four times! Here is a clip from her facebook page. She writes mostly Spanish music but has a few English songs.
The day after her concert, I was off to my yearly vacation. I made the most of it by focusing on my family.
After our short trip to the beach, the back to school shopping commenced.
Then back to the grind.
Work-wise, other than on my vacation, I showed up for my 40-hour shifts. But I also had 36 CE due on August 24th. They give us three years to complete this, and of course, I didn’t start to, GASP, mid-July. On my way back from vacay, I realized I still had 27 CE to go. Most classes only count for one point. So yes I had to hustle. I completed with three days to spare.
Novel wise, I’m part of an online critique group. There are six of us. I try to submit at least five pages weekly, and in return, I read their work. This keeps me pretty busy. I attend my bi-weekly local library critique group, and I usually share what I submit to the online group. Oh, I entered a contest with two days until the deadline. I’m also part of a chapter group that meets once a month, and we took this fun shot.
Writing has become a big part of me alongside my amazing partners. I missed my online and physical book clubs this month and will probably skip them in September again so I can be ready for my writer’s conference in Sep26th!
Here’s to another busy month. Hopefully, I can catch up next month y’all :).
What have you guys been up to?
