The To Do List 29th October to 4th November

I’m not too sure how these “to do lists” will work during November, so I guess we’ll just have to see.

How did I do with last weeks list?

1. Continue with Faber homework. Done! Although I didn’t do the 5000 words, but more on that later.

2. Do synopsis for writing group. Ummmmm, pass…..I’m not sure you can do one if you don’t know how the story will end lol.

3. Change Faber piece from 1st person to 3rd person. Done! Still don’t like it! Lol

4. Finish current read. Nope, not read much fiction this week 😦

5. Make some decisions. Done! And feeling much calmer lol

So this week see’s the start of Nano *gulp* and I’m not exactly practising what I preach 😉 I’m still not 100% sure which WIP I’ll be working on lol. I don’t want to end up one of those writers who has a drawer (metaphorically) full of unfinished manuscripts, if you know what I mean lol.

So the options are:
A rewrite of But Not Forgotten
Continue with The View Outside
Start Sorrento Sunrise

I’ll probably decide the night before *snigger*

So on to this weeks list…..

1. Faber homework etc Always takes priority!

2. Look at But Not Forgotten and decide which 5,000 words to submit.

3. Start Christmas shopping. Yes, I know it’s not writing related, but the quicker I get it done the better 😉

4. Stock freezer for bad weather. Apparently, we’re due some major snow this year in the UK….great 😦 Let’s hope it doesn’t affect my retreat or my write ins!


Good luck to all my fellow Wrimo’s. I’m afraid, those of you not taking part might find this months blog a bit boring (lots of Nano talk). So I apologise in advance 🙂 I might get a bit behind with commenting on your blogs too….perhaps I can just give up sleeping 😉

Off to Faber tonight!

So what are your plans for the week?

  1. I think I live in a bubble, Vikki, as I’d not heard about the snow. We live in the middle of nowhere, so it’s hard enough to get supplies when the weather’s fine! You get lots of scrummy food in and you’ll be fine – being snowed in sounds like a boon to Nano 🙂 Can’t wait to hear how it’s all going, good luck with the decisions xxx


    • Really? Just that they’re saying its going to be a bad winter this year. Snow came down south as far as Essex over the weekend * gulp* 😦

      Ha ha ha, normally, I’d agree, but not when you’re the ML who has to attend the Write Ins lol 😉

      Thanks Jo 🙂



  2. Hi Vikki: We are new to your site, finding “Your View Outside” on C2C’s Blog. Enjoyed your post, “The To Do List…” You remind me of my daughter. She’s a big list maker. Be careful, I found her one day, making a list, with #3 stating, Make a new list for the day. (lol) We’ve only just learned about NaNoWriMo this year, and have toyed with the idea of joining our fellow writers in an all-month writing fest. Coarse, the thought of juggling our blog, cleaning our book, querying & planning Thanksgiving as well as beginning our Christmas Shopping now as well, makes our heads spin. Coarse, I think it’s already been decided for me, as I’ve noticed it was on my daughters to-do-list! Looking forward to your future posts and so happy to have found your blog! Good luck with the NaNoWriMo! And I’m sure whatever topic you pick, will be fantastic!!


  3. This week I need to prep for NaNo. Been putting it off as I don’t want to get bored of it too soon.
    It’ll be fun to pick something to write the night before. My first year I had no idea what I was doing and it was a buzz just winging it 😉


  4. Eeks! NaNo really is this week. Gah. Okay, panic over. It will be fun, right?

    Take care in that snow storm. Here in Ontario, we are supposed to have remnants of hurricane Sandy this week.
