I was going to say “Vanquished by Virus” but I wasn’t really vanquished …

The cold I acquired from TYG last weekend left me quite wiped out Tuesday and not that great Wednesday. Still, I feel quite pleased overall—if not vindicated, certainly not vanquished.
I completed my eHow quota and devoted the rest of my writing time to the Monster Earth story, Peace With Honor. It still doesn’t hold together but after I went over my second draft I started to see all kinds of potential: Characters, settings, plot elements that will make it work (I hope). I’ll try them out in next week’s redraft.
I also took a little more time to work on my elves-in-the-south story Southern Discomfort and a redraft of Bro’s Before Ho’s which is finally close to working. Though I think the changes I’ve made will necessitate changing the title.
As for the month as a whole, I didn’t complete all my writing goals, but I finished more than half of them—that’s a big improvement over the past couple of months. And I easily passed my financial goals, so that’s very good. I know I won’t do as well next month, between the move and another round of surgery for TYG, but I’ll scale down my agenda accordingly.
