Almost recovered from residency

I know I should have posted last week, but I was still recovering. So, I'm posting now, and I'll probably post again this coming Sunday.

The residency was a whirlwind, as usual. I came back crammed with more knowledge and another list of recommended books that I can't afford, but purchased anyway promptly when I got home. I also came back with motivation. Sadly, it's motivation to work on other things besides the novel revisions, and since I told myself I can't work on other things since my revisions hold precedence... I'm sure you can discern that circle.

I have done some writing. I wrote up my new Prelude, and I'm quite happy with it, until my mentor and critique group tear it apart. And I worked on the next chapter which needed revising, and it happened to be two new scenes. I'm not so sure about the scenes right now. I look forward to feeback on them. I feel they're necessary, but I might have rushed the scenes too quickly. I'm sure that chapter will need special attention in my second revision.

Anyway, the list of things I need to get done by April is making me sick. Here's hoping I get everything done so I can graduate in June. I will get everything done (Goal 27). Okay, that's all I've got for now. Happy writing!
