I have to admit; I’ve been cheating this week. I planned and started to write a short story, when I should have been noveling. I’m bogged down in the endless middle again and I couldn’t resist the temptation. Nonetheless I’m falling behind on my goal with all the travel I’m doing. And to top it all off, yesterday I got sick and I’m still nursing my cold. I’m hoping to do at least some catching up during the weekend when my partner is the one doing the traveling and I’ll be staying at home.

Project: Librarians (with a little short story on the side)

Things accomplished in fiction: I finally managed to plot out a short story I’ve been meaning to write for a long time but haven’t been able to figure out the story I wanted to tell.

Next up: Finish writing the short story and return to noveling.

Things accomplished in real life: Went to Copenhagen and came back. Had lots of fun but I was very happy to return home. Went on my first rollercoaster with a loop-de-loop and honestly, I was scared shitless right up until the point the ride started moving. I started shaking when the ride stopped but during the ride I was mostly fine (there was this one turn that freaked me out and to my surprise it wasn’t the loop-de-loop one), surprisingly much so.
