This whole round has pretty much been a bust when it comes to writing. I’ve done a LOT of editing for clients, though.

Here’s what I need to do. Yes, I still think I need to put my clients first because that’s what they’re paying me for. However, I shouldn’t put my writing at the very bottom of everything. I think I’m maybe doing it on purpose because it’s been so long since I’ve written anything that I’m afraid. I don’t know for sure what I’m afraid of, but I FEEL afraid when I think of my WIP. I need to get over that and get back to work.

So, having said all that, I want to be ready to get things done next round!

ROW80 Update 6/6/16

So…I’ve been complaining that there’s not enough hours in the day. And yet, I signed up for a Culinary Herbalist class. *sigh* But, I really need to take steps to improve my health, and that’s what this is about. It talks about “food as medicine”. There are recipes and suggestions on what foods and herbs are medicinal. I’ve watched the first video and have watched half of the second one. I just hope I can do this because I’m really bad at eating fruits and vegetables. One thing it mentioned is that in N. America, we are used to mostly three flavors. Sweet, sour, and salty. Other cultures embrace other flavors, such as bitter and pungent. I hope I can enlightened my palate. LOL

So, here’s all the things I have to do in the next few weeks:

1. Write my ROW80 inspirational post (tonight!) so Kait’s eye won’t twitch
2. Do one lesson per day on Culinary Herbalism
3. Do editing on three books for clients
4. Work in some exercise
5. Start cooking with recipes from my lessons
6. Study my teacher’s manual for Vacation Bible School & cut out visual aids for each student
7. Teach VBS the week of June 13-7
8. Finally, find some little bits of time to write

These things wouldn’t be so daunting if I didn’t have to work at my day job 40+ hours per week. And after I got back to work from vacation today, I found out my assistant is leaving. The best assistant I’ve ever had. 😦

I will persevere!
