Project Planning

We’re leaving this Saturday for Florida where we annually spend the Thanksgiving holidays. We won’t be back until midnight on Dec. 1, so I thought I’d better organize my project planning schedule.

Today: Sewing Day

Today I’m finishing a sewing project which I’ll reveal soon.

Wednesday: Baking Day

I’m attending a cookie exchange three days after I get home and need to have twelve packages of cookies ready, one dozen cookies in each package. I’ll bake them tomorrow and store them in the freezer until party time.

Thursday: Craft Day

These index cards are what I’ve been using for years to store my online accounts and passwords information. It’s driving me crazy trying to sort through them all to find what I need. So I’m going to make a Computer Info Notebook as inspired by one featured on the Mish Mash blog.

Friday: Packing Day

Along with the regular packing, I always pack a project bag with my latest knitting mission. I’m making one of our daughters (a Twilight fan) a set of Bella’s Mittens and a cable knit cap. Both Christmas gifts will be finished while we’re in Florida.

Although I met the NaNoWriMo word count, that doesn’t mean I consider my novel done. I’m editing and revising as needed. I’m taking my laptop to Florida to work on this and will add the new draft to the NaNoWriMo site for the final word count due by midnight on Nov. 30. Even after that, I’m going to revise until it’s ready for submission to an agent.

Have a wonderful time in Florida over Thanksgiving. Good luck with your projects. Funny though I suspect you will be working on a few others too.

Oh, but Junie! You can procrastinate on the editing until March - for National Novel Editing Month. You can just leave your big word count as it is and go on with your life!

Well, that's what I'd be doing if I were done, anyway, which I'm not. Sad.

Go have a great holiday and I can't wait to see all these FOs!
