Mid-Month February Check-In

February mid-month Check-In

I’m behind on NOT BY THE BOOK and SONGBOUND SISTERS. I’m rethinking some of the plot of SONGBOUND, and I hope to dive back into it later this week.

I have not drafted the short story yet.

I haven’t been as vigilant on my cardio/strength training as I should (in spite of shoveling snow), but I’m in a good place with the yoga/meditation.

However, all is not lost writing-wise. I’ve written 177 pages, 44,500 words these past two weeks, on a project I’d put aside, because I wasn’t sure what to do with it. It’s pulling at me, and I’m clearer, so I’m rolling with it. That makes up for anything and everything that’s not getting done. It feels good to be back in the writing groove again.

In other words, I’ve been making use of snow days!

How is your February going?
