April Wrap-Up and May To Do List

April dashed past so fast, I barely noticed it leave! I’m glad it’s finally warming up a bit and things are blooming.

I wrapped up April in this fashion:

April Wrap-Up

Done:
Only 5 pitches — must up that this year
Advanced Workshop for RWA
2 rounds of edits and final galleys for ASSUMPTION OF RIGHT
Got lawnmower — and even started using it

In Progress:
Setting as Character Workshop for Savvy (runs until almost end of May)
Millennium Trilogy (reading it)
Work on SPIRIT REPOSITORY
Choosing A of R swag
A of R Media Kit — have to update per edits
Submitting short stories
Garden work — won’t that always be a work in progress?
Rehabilitate back
Catch up with applications for year-long intensive (more have come in)

Dropped/Moved:
April Newsletter never got done
Finish new brochure
Create list for local mailing
Work on anthology short story for July submission

Additional:
Unpacking
Notes for Annabel Aidan book not connected to A of R world
Helped with Butterfly Mosiac at wildlife Sanctuary

Successes:
A of R is with the publication, in production for release

Disappointments:
April just kind of moved along. I’m not really disappointed by anything, just trying to get everything done. I was frustrated by a client, and won’t work with that particular client again, but things happen.

While I was in it, April felt somewhat frustrating, but now that I look back, it was better than I expected.

And on to May, which is a busy month, full of traveling:

To Do List for May:

12-15 pitches
May newsletter
