Last Week and Next Week

What did I do last week?

Well, I wrote a sci-fi short story called We Dragons¬†and submitted it to a couple of places. That was a three-day process from concept to writing to editing to submission. I’m looking forward to seeing what kinds of rejections it earns me!

I also did some rewrites and revisions for my thesis, and later today I’ll be writing my abstract and sending my completed second draft off to my committee for further feedback. That’s another milestone to celebrate along the path to finally being finished.

Besides writing, I did some cooking last week, but nothing too special, and I didn’t take any pictures. I experimented with stuffing a chicken breast with almonds and apple, and there’s some potential there, but I need to work on it. I’m thinking of maybe trying it as more of a garnish than a stuffing. It went well with the rice, I thought.

This week, I’m back to working on my novel. With some good time management, I’m hoping to get at least another 12,000 words done. I’ll also be building up my 50-word story backlog, of course, and working to promote preorders of Volume Two.

Feels like a good week, coming up!
