First off, my file became corrupted (Who out there is corrupting vulnerable young files?) and I lost a week’s worth. And then I couldn’t work on the manuscript for a day because I felt so sick about losing a week’s worth. Could I have backed it up and saved myself all of this? Do I usually back it up and never need the backup? Yeah–that’s why I was so upset.
Anyway, first draft should be done soon and then it will go out to beta readers. But here is my resolutions regarding the book.
I will not paint any rooms, cabinets, or anything else in my house until I finish the first draft of this manuscript. Even though, trust me, it really needs it.
I will not organize any closets, despite the fact that I’ve seen two episodes of the Netflix series Tidying Up and have a sudden desire to go through them.
I will not watch any TV or Movies (unless I’m on the treadmill) until the manuscript is winging it’s way to the beta readers
I will not cook any meals that take more than 45 minutes to prepare until I’ve typed The End.
And I won’t clean my bathroom…or maybe that’s going too far…Any chance I could convince my husband that he needs to do it?
Maybe this whole not doing housework thing could work out for me…
