Camp NANO is one week away! I’ve been preparing for this since December.
I’ve spent the majority of March revising Valkyrie’s so that I can get it to my betas. That is going to be delayed about a week from my original plan because there is more that needs to be tweaked. I’m not going to call it finished until I feel that it is at least completely baked.
So . . . Camp NANO. This is going to be an entirely different project for me. I’ve done fantasy – Kiss of the Dragon which still needs to be revised; I’ve done paranormal – Faere Warrior, Passion’s Price; (which I haven’t given up on. After my former coach advised me to write the backstory, I realized just how much of the story revolved around the backstory and the first book needed to be that story, not Keegan’s story.) I’ve done romance – Red Wine & Roses. This time, I am working on a project that is very personal. It’s a nonfiction about emotional healing, dealing with the things I have taught in the counseling classes.
I may share snippets from that one, but not sure. In order to keep myself on track with this and get my editing done, I have made use of my . . . wait for it . . . . you know it’s coming . . . . my bullet journal!
I’m managing to squeeze the last few days out of my first one. A couple things that I already know I need to do differently in the new one: a bigger calendar, one with squares that I can write stuff on, because I’ve been in the habit of scheduling on my calendar. The month at a glance – I made it a two column page. A monthly tracker although this month I haven’t kept up with it. I won’t be using as many stickers, it’s much faster to just draw squares around my todo list. I’ve added a few doodles here and there.
My BuJo has been all sorts of colorful fun, getting to play with my pens in a new way but for the rest of the year, I will stick to one main color per month unless it’s a highlighter and highlighters don’t count, right? For March my color has been green, for April I will be using light blue. Not that it matters to anyone, but I think it will be a cleaner look. Here’s a last look at my first bullet journal.
I’ve already started preparing my new journal. This was a gift received from a lovely lady in Holland.
I haven’t decided yet how I’m going to track my new project, other than in Scrivener, but it’s at the top of my todo list for every day.
I am hoping to share soon some of my craftiness for another business venture, but life has presented some urgent matters that need to be attended. Such is life.
I won’t be posting a snippet on Sunday as it is Easter, so Happy Easter!
Write on my friends, write on!
