|Just swimming along...|
What a weird, stressful week. I decided over the weekend that I wasn't going to write for a certain company anymore; unfortunately, they were my major source of income, so I'm a bit worried and stressed about finding another gig to replace them. I haven't been sleeping, my reading time keeps getting interrupted, and one of the dogs got really sick on Wednesday night. She kept panicking and flailing around and would only calm down if someone was holding her. I need some major happy, distracting and/or inspiring entertainment, stat.
In the meantime, on to the queue...
Planning/Editing/Writing: Not much news to report this week. I only managed to write a few pages in Bank Robber's Special (still working on the title) over the week, probably one of the reasons I'm in a MOOD. Writing isn't therapy but sometimes it has the same effect. The blog tour for The Sea Queen's Daughter is filled so now I just need to focus on guest posts.
Reading: This week I finished Death Without Company by Craig Johnson. It was much better than the first book in the series, The Cold Dish—shorter and with more things happening. Currently I'm reading Animal Farm by George Orwell for an essay I'm writing. If Boxer dies I am going to be VERY upset, you guys. Oh, and I'm re-listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on audiobook.
Planning: An article on Doctor Who and how it's become a touchstone for feminist and colonial issues because of its popularity and worldwide audience. Just heard today that the new season won't start until fall 2014, incidentally.
Editing: More artist profiles.
Writing: Today is more of editing day for me. If I get time to write I want to focus on my fiction stuff and write up a review of Death Without Company.
Reading: Since I haven't had a lot of time to read, I haven't made much of dent in Take a Closer Look, the book about art interpretation I started last week.
What have you been up to this week?
