Muddled March
'Muddled' is a good word to describe the weather in my area in March! -9 or so at the beginning of the month, close to 70 in the middle of the month, then down again for a bit of snow and some much-needed rain, before bouncing back to 60+ for the very end of the month. For me, it was another very busy month with not as much accomplished as I'd hoped (what else is new) and not much to show for it with my summary list either. Though at least this month I've got one!

I did make some progress with a craft project, and had fun planning for my 'turning-40' Idaho trip this summer, as well as some garden planning. Exercising is coming along decently as well, and since it was warmer at times, I got off the exercise bike and out for some long walks, which was nice (leaving aside what I did to my feet with my hiking shoes on that 11 mile jaunt at Afton State Park). But most of my spare time was engulfed with revisions and editing in my first Geren book. At least I now think I might actually live to reach Pass 3... (I was at 48% the end of February, and 11% the end of January.)

Mar 8 - Started writing 'Renegade'
Mar 11 - First apheresis donation of 2015

Pass 1 Highlight/comment potential edits & revisions COMPLETE!
Pass 2 Major edits and revisions In Progress, 91% done
Pass 3 Items missed in Pass 2, edit revisions not yet started
Pass 4 Highlight/address bad habits and trouble spots not yet started
Pass 5 Verbal read-through not yet started
Pass 6 Thorough review with different font and page layout not yet started
Pass 7 Final sweep not yet started

Note: Passes 2 & 5 will take the longest because I have to do them at home, and can't work on the bus or my lunchbreaks. Pass 2 is the most difficult and grueling; Pass 5 will probably render me severely hoarse!

As for April, I need to wrap up the craft project before gardening season arrives, and I also want to finish the last Triune prep-story, though that is looking like a bigger project than I initially guessed. April brings the first art fairs I want to attend, and more outdoor excursions as well, I hope. But of course Geren book 1 revisions will still take top priority.
