This week has been so crazy I can’t even believe it’s already Thursday. Trying to do any amount of traveling this winter has become insane at best, so of course my five hour trip home from Washington DC became a nineteen hour marathon of airports and shuttles. I’m still recovering.
The long weekend with my sister was great, though. The best part of visiting family is that I don’t feel the need to be a tourist, so we mostly hung out in her apartment, talking, reading, and watching a marathon of Marvel Superhero Movies (X-men: First Class, Thor 2, Iron Man, the Avengers). We did get a fancy tour of the bowels of the Capital, including a senator’s “hideaway” and the underground tunnels that link all the buildings nearby. The St. Vincent concert was amazing, and we were able to see a friend for the first time in twelve or so years because he was a bartender right around the corner from the concert venue. So, despite the unexpected overnight stay in Atlanta with no luggage, the trip was a fun success!

I finished reading THE SAVAGE BLUE, which I loved, and wrote more StO on the plane. I’m super behind on critiquing though. I had planned to do that on the plane, but I couldn’t get to the printed pages because they were in my backpack in the overhead bin. So that’s tonight’s plan.
And it’s a new month! Which means new #WriteMotivation Goals:
1. Continue writing Speak the Ocean. This does not appear to be a problem so far, which makes me kind of nervous. When is this writing spree going to end? Hopefully not until I’m finished with the first draft.
2. Start writing the query for StO. I totally did this last month :) The first paragraph is SOLID, but I still need to work on the middle and end.
3. Do better with visiting the other blogs. Travel made this nearly impossible this week. I’ll do better next week.
4. Run 2x per week. Yoga once per week. Travel also screwed this schedule up, but considering how much I walked around DC and various airports in the past week, I’m going to call it a semi-win.
This weekend I’ll be recovering from the busyness of last weekend, so I plan to do a whole lot of nothing. It’s also going to be seventy degrees, so I plan to do nothing with the windows open ;) Have a good weekend, Aledans and Merfolk!
