The past few days I have been dealing with a lingering migraine wouldn’t go away. I couldn’t stare at a screen for a long period of time, until yesterday.

I am looking forward to doing some major writing and reading this weekend. Perhaps, the Golden Shadow will curl up on my bed while I read. He has his favorite spots for sleeping and my bed on his top three list.

Yesterday, I accomplished one of my writing goals for February. The novel I’ve been reworking, now, has an ending. So, I can focus on the middle and those events.

I am still working on my short story. While I wrote two scenes, a new minor character emerged. Now, I am pondering on different scenarios in the story. This new character needs a name, but I’m not too worried about it.

My goal is to have the first section of the story done by the end of February. I hope. A story is developing, it can change from the outline. That makes it interesting for me to see how events happened and how it will affect the characters. When the game changers events happen that when all the drama and chaos comes. This is why I enjoy writing my first drafts of my stories.

Today, I reached my goal of 4000 words on my short story. I’m not done yet, for I’m still writing the first section. So far, the story is coming together.

A supporting character took an intriguing turn in her development causing conflict with the main character. It looks interesting. I’m looking forward to completing the story.

This past weekend, I started reading a new romance novel, and the story grabbed me right away. On Saturday, I read 32 pages and on Sunday; I read two more chapters. (Tonight, I’m planning on reading a chapter, before bed.)

Also, I did some editing on a story and book review. Then, I watched the last quarter of the Super Bowl, that’s the only time I watch football. Supergirl’s episode was a repeat, and there was nothing else on tv.

That was my weekend.

I will work on three writing projects for February. Well, I have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), and I like to work on different projects.

The first project is a short story, and I have written chapter 1 of the first section. My word count says there are about 2,000 words and my goal total was 4,000 words for the story. I’ll be increasing my overall word count for that project is my main focus. My goal is to write half of the first draft.

The second writing project is I’m reworking a novel. That has been a challenge for me; my mind is playing out different scenarios with the characters’ storyline. I need to work on a possible ending to help guide me to write an intriguing middle. So, that’s my goal for project two.

The third project is that I am writing the first draft of a novel. I took a break allowing the creative juices to replenish. My goal is to write three chapters this month.

It has been cold here with a brief warm-up, before another major outbreak of bitter cold arrives. Tomorrow, I will do errands.

Next week, I’m planning on writing, for my goal is to write half of my short story. I already have 1,000 words done.

This weekend, I want to finish reading The Lost Starship, and to work on my review of The Queen’s Poisoner.

Perhaps, I may get a head start on some spring cleaning too. Spring will be here soon. That means more work outside.

Those are my goals for next week and trying to stay warm too.
