So, I had an eventful weekend. A writer meetup with my fellow Harbingers of Doom, Danny Marks, J. Anderson Coats, and Marissa Burt -- two 2K12er and an Apocalypty.
Then I got a bout of the 24 hour flu. Good times. I hate being sick. I'm not good at standing still, especially when there is so much to do. It was hard to walk by a weed without pulling it, look at the dishes in the sink, see the mound of laundry. But I always overdo it when I'm sick, prolonging my illness. I was a good girl this time.
Then I stressed, panicked, and nearly collapsed over my option book. If you don't know what an option book is, it's when your publisher has right of first refusal over your next novel. It's a lot of pressure.
On a more positive note, I'm taking an HTML class today. My goal: to be self sufficient at producing websites and maintaining the one at my day job. I bought a book, but I'm much better at being shown how to do something. So I'm very excited. Then I have a four day writer's retreat I'm conducting at the ocean with four friends. We're each giving a presentation, writing, having fun, and socializing. I'm really looking forward to it. We're going to come up with a pithy name for it and do it annually.
That's about that for a Monday.
How's your Monday so far?
