The next two weeks are going to be a test of endurance for me. I have 4 hours of work each day during the week, relieving for someone at a local business. The hard part is, they want me to continue working for them afterwards on a casual contract. I don’t have any issues with the contract, but I also work for my husband, and I love working for him. So I have to explain to them that I won’t be working for them after the two weeks, but I’m happy to do some relieving work.
Why is it challenging? Because 1) I also have my art folio due in at the end of the term, which is three weeks away, and all of my art times are in the morning. 2) I also have work for my husband to fit in. 3) my husband is away this week, so I don’t have anyone to cuddle me and tell me its going to be okay and 4) it makes for a long day, and I have housework and writing / artwork to do as well. I’m hoping to get the writing done in the evening.
But, taking each day as it comes will only make it easier.
I haven’t had much opportunity to rework Curse of the Taniwha this week, I’ve reached the middle which is kind of like swiss cheese – full of holes! I have a strong beginning and a strong ending. I just need a well supportive and strong middle to keep the whole thing together. I will make it happen, but I guess that is going to eat into another month.
I kind of want to get Curse of the Taniwha out of the way, because this Science Fiction story is really forming quite fast, and I don’t know if I can contain the excitement for much longer. It just wants to be written. Have already drawn out a map, and downloaded some pictures of futuristic transport… The main characters have names – the story doesn’t though. Hopefully something will come about. Its going to be epic – I know that.
To make matters worse, I’ve entered into an competition with a fellow author, to see who get’s their novel out first… Will keep you posted on that. I guess it will have to be Running Away, as that one has been finished and just needs polishing and editing.
So what are you working on this week?
