I think it's been far too long since I posted some empty boxes for 🌜 HuntersMoon.
I have created a master 'bucket list' which is actually more like a lifelong to do list, but maybe they're the same thing. Anyway, if you wanna check it out, it's at Elle's Lists. Each category has a sublist (linked in the heading), which has more detail (like weekly or monthly tasks to check off as they're done). Yup, there's a Writing.com category.
Right now, all my spare time is being spent on family history research for one of Steve's uncles who is terminally ill and has asked me for information on his side of the family, and working on a wedding present for my sister who is getting married in July. Because they've both got a sense of urgency to them, those have been my priorities.
I'm making good progress on these goals too though:
Write at least one poem a month
Read 120 books in 2018
Write at least one book review a month
Post at least once a week in my Wordpress blog
Read and comment on other blogs at least once a week
I haven't been very successful at these ones though:
Write at least one short story a month (haven't written any yet this year!)
Approach at least one author/blogger/publisher re interview once a month (any volunteers?)
I know you've all been waiting for an announcement of when the Quills and PreQuills ceremonies will be held. No, don't even bother telling me you missed me, I know you only care about the Quills.
Although we could conduct the ceremonies old-school style in an in-and-out, everyone seems to enjoy the live video feeds. But to do those, you need decent internet access.
We got the message we'd be switching to fibre this month. Yay! Then they turned our broadband off. Boo! So we were left with no internet at all. Then they turned the broadband back on, but it's going at a fraction of the speed it was before. Then we had a power cut, so back to no internet. It's like a Monty Python comedy of errors. Right now, the power's back on, but the internet is iffy.
Can you imagine living in a house with two teenagers with no decent internet? It's a scary thing, I tell ya.
So as soon as I have decent, reliable internet, I'll schedule the two ceremonies, and I'll make sure to advertise the dates here in the newsfeed so you can see them. And I'll give you as much notice as I can, on the understanding that we don't want to drag this out until we're hosting them in November. I'm overseas for pretty much the whole of July, so we really wanna get it sorted before then. I know, that's months away, but time flies, doesn't it?
Just happened to pop into WDC today for the first time in ages when I had no super specific thing I wanted to find real quick (I save lots of real life info in my notepad). Felt like stopping by to say hey. Been too fucking long!
