I can't believe we're nearing mid-November. Ack! (Will not obssess on the February deadline. Will not obsess...) My days are packed (whose aren't), but I am happy to report that I scratched three projects off of my 'To Do' list yesterday and made progress on a few others.
Over the past couple of days I've made decent stride on my next book for HQN as well as the 'new book' proposal that I promised my agent. Yay!
Confirmed my three appearences as Storyteller, Penelope Pageturner, and read three of the twelve children's books on my desk (who knew there were so many books about snow?) in an effort to nail down my 'winter wonderland' program.
Cleaned out a closet and dresser and donated three bags of nice coats and clothes to people in need. (more on that tomorrow).
Lastly, after two months of tinkering and trying to create a theme I liked, and then inputting all the graphics and copy, I finally finished my new website!! It's up and running and I'm pretty darn pleased. Given my tech-gooberness, not bad. I need to fix two links in my greeting, and upload more pictures to my photo gallery, but other than that... Thank you again to Miss Zoot for the banner design!
Sure, my "To Do" list is still quite lengthy, but by lifting self-imposed deadlines and diligently chipping away day by day, I have made progress. Instead of looking at all I have yet to do, today I'm looking at all I've done and celebrating my determination.
So easy to beat ourselves up. Harder to say to one's self, "Well done." Come on. If I can do it, you can. Name at least one thing/project that you tackled or made progress on this week, and end it with, "Well done."
