October Newsletter

Hi, everyone! It’s that time again! Monthly news and accountability!

Life And Other Such Important Matters

Let’s see… September was… a month that happened. It’s mostly passed me by in a haze of sleep deprivation and annoyance as I’ve tried to get people to deal with an uninvited house pest. It’s still directly above my head in the attic, but at least we’ve reached a point where I can sleep at night, so I’ve been slowly catching up on things. Or, rather, feeling like I might, possibly, be catching up on my never-ending to-do list. Yay, progress!

Beyond that life itself continues much as it has. I finally convinced people to take Twi to the vet. We’re currently on new medication for her to see if that helps, my sweet elderly bb. I’d say she’s fine to stop people worrying, but she’s obviously not fine-fine. You wouldn’t know from her actions, though. She’s active and about, eating plenty, etc, so I’m hopeful that she’ll get to live a happy elderly few more years. Even if she does hate pills, but then I wouldn’t like them either so I don’t blame her. Honestly, I’m just happy she seems to be doing as well as she is.

Completed Projects

lol I barely managed to get anything done this month because I was either too exhausted to do anything or busy catching up on sleep, it feels like. I did make little bits of progress, but that’s it.

October Goals

  • Finish that essay!
  • Finish that short!
  • Finish that game!
  • Read 12 books

Yep. Short and simple. This should be perfectly doable. We’ll see. I’ve probably said this every month this year and failed in most of them. [sigh] I’m so done with this year.

September Goals

I do not remember, but I’m fairly sure the only one I reached was the reading goal because it’s the only one I consistently reach.

Writing Updates

This Month’s Fiction Wordcount: Somewhere under 1000.

This Month’s Non-Fiction Wordcount: Somewhere under 1000.

Warrior Aces Comp: I have an intro! Sort of! It’s terrible. But it’s a start.

Stand-out Positive Moment

The moment September turned into October. I am that done with September. Here’s to hoping that October will be better!
