Hi everyone! Hope you had or are having, a wonderful Easter break. We had a wonderful time down country, about 3 hours drive away at a Jazz Festival and market day. Lots of wonderful activities for kids, music, singing, and arts and crafts to buy. The best part was that all the food and rides, face painting, and kid activities such as easter bonnet making, were FREE! By stroke of luck there was also nearby a huge Book Sale on in a warehouse. Books were anything from 50c each to $3.00 for 4 books. There were old records, DVD’s and CD’s also. I bought an interesting book regarding the English language, which I will talk about at a later time.
Right now I just wanted to do a quick 12×12 check-in. Yes that’s right. Don’t faint. I know it’s the 1st of April here at 9am Monday morning and as the title says, this is no April fools’ joke. So recapping on my last three months, I have to admit I haven’t done very much. While I have joined the 12×12 this year, my main aim is to revise and revise, to get a few drafts up to perfection. In January I managed to get a draft done, yay! But in February all I did was scribble some notes down in the back of my journal and missed even commenting on Julie’s blog. Internet connection while away was terribly intermitten and I am no whizz on the iphone, I can tell ya! Anyway I feel really pleased this month as I completed a rough draft with that idea and came up with another one for this month. They are terribly rough and need a lot of work and rethinking but it’s done, so I am on target. I have done revisions on three of my drafts thanks to the help of my critique group, they are awesome. Now I am going to be passing them back in the following months and revising, to get them spic-an-span for subbing. I am looking forward to what the next three months has in store for me.
As I said, I’ve not done much, but I am focused, and that’s the main thing.
Hope you all are having a really happy Easter.
