What I will be doing this weekend

I’ve managed exactly 1 writing session in the first week of the year. Bad, bad me. But there is a lot of things I’ve got going on and I’m going to try to use the weekend to organize. My weekend tasks can be divided into 3 categories.

Writing-related things I will be doing this weekend:

  • Finish reading Part 1 of my NaNoWriMo novel so that I can start transforming it in the my “Rescue” novelette.
  • Actually start writing the novelette
  • Finish reading the May 1994 Science Fiction Age
  • Write my post for the May 1994 Science Fiction Age
  • Visit 2 local bookstores in search of more issues of Astounding
  • Possibly visit a third bookstore
  • Finish preparing for my talk on science fiction for the Arlington Writers Group

Family-related things I will be doing this weekend:

  • (Possibly) taking the Little Man to Gymboree
  • Chores around the house
  • Preparing a dinner or two
  • Going to the park, if the weather permits
  • Watching Mater/Sponge Bob/Fineas & Ferb/Mickey Mouse Club with the Little Man (over and over and over again)

Miscellaneous things I will be doing this weekend:

  • Elliptical machine (x3)
  • Either retiring the antediluvian iMac we currently use as a server, or upgrading it to Leopard (ETA: retirement and/or upgrade postponed until next week)
  • Start pulling together tax records (most of which are fortunately digitized this year)
  • Other tasks as assigned

What I won’t be doing this weekend:

  • Getting much rest

Happy Friday!
