What I’m Working On Right Now
Half blog, half journal.
Check back every few weeks to see what’s up on the farm!
It’s the 1st of May and snowing. I’m in Embarrass at home. At the bed and breakfast.
This month I’m doing both Me Made May (#MMMay17) and contributing to the Curvy Sewing Collective May Capsule Sewing theme month (#CSCminicapsule) – intro post to come as of the time of writing this! This will be a busy month, but fun.
I just finished a personal retreat weekend. I spent one day working on more inner work – journaling, tarot card reading… novel reading. And one day on planning out May, June and July, especially on the editorial calendar side. I learned from the day of inner work that I need to move forward, put the past behind me and engage in creation, action… and discipline. I learned from the day of planning and scheduling that there’s more things on my to-do list than hours in the day.
So, inspired by my weekend I returned to work on my novel – a mystery cozy with definite supernatural doings. And fabric. And farms. And a basset hound. My goal is 60K words this month. They won’t be good words, but words on the paper.
We’re also starting to plan for the busy season at the B&B. The first event will be June 3rd – a barn sale. I’d like to have a new batch of candles and soaps by then — if we can scrape up the money for supplies — and maybe a few items for the 3 Snugbugs Studios side – clothing and accessories.
Other things on my mind/taking up my time
- Thanks to a client project, I’ve learned a new platform, Kajabi, interesting stuff!
- I’m obsessed with Ann Charles novels – both the Deadwood and Winnebago series. So fun!
- I’m sorting through online resources I’ve created to add to the websites — both PattyBrower.com and Northern Comfort. Lots of work updating and filling in missing content, but I need to finish my email marketing plotting!
