I’m heading into crunch week, which started with my first time teaching martial arts and continues with my library writing group, my French oral exam, the last iaido practice before grading, anime club*, a bunch of laundry/ironing/packing, travel, grading, and then my French written exam. And all I feel like doing is relaxing.
*I might not make anime club given the rest of the week.
I taught my first martial arts class yesterday. It went OK. It was a good thing I had the book to refer to. I found it helpful when they had questions or specific things to fix. It’s really hard to practice at the same time as teaching. I can’t focus on both at once, otherwise I do both crappy. Since the other classes were cancelled, I got extra practice time in with the other student that is grading next weekend. We have one more class before the big day. Hopefully, the weather isn’t too bad for driving from the GOGA to the GTA.
I can’t wait to see all my iaido buddies!
My oral French exam is tonight. Ten minutes to carry on a conversation. In English, this would be easy. In French, there’s still a hell of a lot of words that I don’t know. Also, my dictation skills have gotten worse as I’ve learned more words because I know several that sound similar or the same. At least the classes are less than $50 if I should happen to need to repeat a level.
I’ve added 6,000 words to my current WIP, The Blood Waitress Club. I feel like I might want to hash out a sticky note plot to be sure I have a clue of what my book is about. With packing and such, I doubt I’ll get a ton done on it this week. My NaNoWriMo attempt will be bleeding into December. At least I’m making progress with the story.
I need to finish the edits on The Page and The Magician and then I think I might search for an agent that represents erotica.
My drawers are stalled. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get them fixed soon.
I got a space saver thing for my bathroom to get my junk off of the counter. My toilet is extra tall (not my choice, obviously), so I need to raise the cabinet off of the floor to make it work. Stalled again.
There are more GF options almost everyday and I get so excited when I discover them! Somehow, I missed when VH sauces went GF. This is HUGE! I loved the cherry sauce with chicken balls 🙂
Well, time to work and get to the rest of it.
