5 plans for summer

1. Edit my book. I keep forgetting that I can get a free paperback proof copy of my latest Nanowrimo book if I submit it by July 1st. I just need to find time before then to edit it a little. I was reading over it again the other day and it really is pretty awful. I only had a month to write it in so I let myself get away with just plain bad writing that normally would drive me crazy. But writing a book in a month is the experience of a lifetime and all the struggles are worth it. I love it.

2. Write another book.
I am thinking about doing a book in a month on my own this summer. I still want to do Nanowrimo, but this is the first year I will have school to worry about at the same time. So, just in case I don't get to do it in November like normal, I was thinking about writing something in July.

3. Sew.
I just found a piece of thick elastic in my sewing box, and I am going to make a skirt with an elastic waistband for my little sister. (I wanted it for myself, but it is just barely too small.)
The other day I bought a yellow quilted placemat at Walmart for $2. I can't decide if I want to use it in my room as some kind of decoration, or make it into a purse for the summer. So I may be doing something with that as soon as I get the time.
Another thing I need to sew is a better selection of skirts. I have a lot of skirts, but most of them are too nice for everyday, or they don't go with any shirt I own, or they are a tiny bit too short and have to be worn with leggings underneath. I need some light, casual, summer skirts that go to just below the knee.

4. Have a blog event.
I promised that when I got twenty followers I would do a blog event or contest. Well, I'm almost there! I have been thinking about what I want to do, and I think I have a good idea. As soon as I get twenty followers I will perfect a plan and set a summer date for it to happen.

5. Start a business.
This is something that I would like to do (See previous post), but I'm not sure if I will attempt it this year. I can't decide. It does sound like a fun challenge, but I'm scared to commit to it because it will take time away from the other things I want to do. On the other hand, I usually get more done when I'm pressed for time. So maybe it would be good for me. : )
