Tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, the official start of summer, my favorite season! It is also the Full Moon in Sagittarius. We’ll be having a late Father’s Day celebration with my Dad and the family tomorrow evening, and then on Tuesday evening I’ll be celebrating the Solstice with my women’s group.
I’ve been away on vacation, and it was super fun! Quester and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by going to the Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee (21 hours drive away from home). We danced and danced and danced, and had a fantastic time. Dead & Company (3 of the members of the Grateful Dead, plus John Mayer and a couple other musicians) was of course my favorite (the picture is me getting ready for the show). But really, there was SO much good music there that we didn’t even have time to see it all! Very inspiring.
Before I left, I met my goal of working on my book two days that week. This week was pretty much all vacation – I continued to take time off even after we got home, because I needed some down time to recover from our adventure. But I did work on the book one day. So, since I last wrote here, I’ve added 3841 new words, for a current total of 41661. That means I’m just over one-third of the way through the first draft. I’m feeling good about it. My current goal is to have the draft done by the end of August. That feels do-able.
It’s hard to believe this Round is almost done, already. I’ll have to gather my thoughts about my progress, and the goals I’ll be working on in Round 3. In the meantime, here are my mini-goals for the upcoming week:
- Work on my Heart of the Goddess book draft at least 5 days.
- Find a partner to host our September workshop in NYC.
- Catch up on blogging and book reviews
- Listen to recorded coaching course calls that I missed while I was away.
- Write copy for our JV project.
I hope your week is full of writing and nature and sunshine! Happy Summer!
