For starters, I have one book due at the end of December. It's half written.
I have another book due at the end of March. I haven't started it and haven't even decided on a plot.
Oh and my editor expressed interested in a spec book I'm writing. She'd like to see a finished book this spring. It's about half done and does have a rough plot.
My mom just died and there's a lot that needs to be done in the wake of her death. I lost a lot of time either caring for her and/or being sad and/or being overwhelmed. (And she was ready to die and had a good death. My condolences to anyone who has experienced it otherwise.)
I have also resolved to start ridding myself of the stacks and stacks of "things" I have.
I need to set up an SEP IRA.
On Veteran's Day, I'm spending 10 hours with a CSI to see what it's really like and to ask a million questions.
I need to blurb someone's book. I said yes months ago, before the craziness happened.
I was not tapped to test for purple belt this last test in kung fu, but have high hopes to be asked to do the next test - which I hear is going to happen soon. Before that I need to get as good at monkey lines as this woman from my school. I need to practice my 45-degree roundhouse kicks and grappling and a dozen other things.
Whew! What do you have to do this month or soon?
