A day late again!

Nothing to report on the writing front. I hope to dive back into that this week.

I just finished an editing job and immediately got another one. That’s how I like it…one job at a time. 🙂

I need to be walking because that JDRF Walk is coming up Saturday, and I’m so out of shape! Last year, I had been walking a lot before the event, but this year…not so much. Again, thanks to the two people from this blog who donated to the cause.

I feel like I’ll never catch up on things I need to do. Do you all ever feel like that?

Signing off!

Always a day late….

I’m finally starting to feel a little better, but something weird is going on. I’m getting a sore throat that comes and goes. There one day, gone the next. One night it hurt so badly, I was almost in tears. The next day? Nothing. I don’t know what could be going on, but it can’t be bacterial. I’ve been on two different kinds of antibiotics for my other issues. My dear friend, Anya, says it could be the pollen irritating my throat, but this feels like the gland, like when you have strep rather than a raw throat. Who knows?

Okay, enough about that. This is a writing thing, not a whining thing, right?

I’ve got a couple of editing jobs coming up, so I won’t be writing as much, but I HAVE started writing notes on the third in my mystery series under the other pen name. And I’m going to still be working on Keeper of His Soul. This illness has put me behind on everything, but I’m trying to get back on track. Maybe I’ll be able to post more on my next few check-ins.

I also want to thank the two people who responded to my last blog post and donated or pledged a donation to my walk for Juvenile Diabetes. That’s very generous, and I appreciate it so much. I’m not mentioning names because I thought you might want to remain anonymous. 🙂

I’m walking for Juvenile Diabetes again this year. If any of you can contribute just $5.00, it can really help. I know a little girl who has this terrible disease, and I’m doing this so that maybe someday she won’t have to have multiple shots per day. She was diagnosed when she was five, and I think she’s eight right now. I’m on her team and will be walking with her and her family on April 30.

If any of you are interesting in donating, contact me at lauralynnelliottauthor@gmail.com, and I’ll send you the link. I’m not going to post that here for privacy reasons.

I understand if you can’t do this. There are so many causes, and you can’t help them all. But if you can give even just $1.00, that’s cool. Thank you all for at least considering it! 🙂

ROW80 Update 4/6/16

I almost didn’t post because I didn’t really have much to say. But one of the things I really want to try to do is make sure I check in when I’m supposed to.

I didn’t state my goals when the round began because, quite frankly, I’m still not sure what I want them to be. I’ve had some setbacks this round, and part of it was due to being sick for quite a while. I’ve had no energy, and I’ve been coughing like crazy. Then pleurisy. That’s all a lot better, though, and besides, I’ve already talked about all that. I’ve also been on a three book editing job, and that’s taken up a lot of my time.

So…I know I want to get focused back on my own writing and find a way to juggle all the things in my universe. I’m neglecting so much. I want to get back to writing in my Spark planner. I’m doing that at work, but not so much at home.

Maybe by next check-in, I’ll have a better idea of what I want to accomplish.
