Slayers 5 New Year’s resolutions

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…

  1. Haha! Very relatable. Also, I’ve really enjoyed the Tidying Up show too!

    I hope your rewrite comes easier than it did the first time, and I hope you had plenty of chocolate to nurse your wounded writer spirit. Nothing hurts worse than all that effort gone to waste. So sorry you had to go through that. 🙁

  2. Oh no!!! So so sorry about the lost files. I feel sick for you too! Good luck with getting the first draft done. And holler if you ever need more beta readers. 😉

  3. Oh no! That’s no way to start the new year! All that lost work! I’m sorry!

    I’m afraid to watch that show because I’m already having the “itch” to get rid of things. If I watch, will we be down to one utensil each and a chair? Watching Hoarders gives me the “get back to basics itch”.

    I hope things are a little more easy going now for you! Good luck!
