Prepping for Camp


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.

First bujo cover - This is the 33 cent comp book. Notice the tabs, these are necessary for me.

One of my colorful days - I couldn't focus this day. It was miserably cold out and I was wishing we were back in the Bahamas, can you tell?

AS you can see I haven't finished my entries for today.

Some quotes that I have carried over, and a doodle. *shrugs*

Some quotes that I have carried over, and a doodle. *shrugs* I added a dutch door which is a “week at a glance todo list.

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!
