Off-track August
I picked up a magnet a year or so ago, probably in Montecito. In black letters on a gold background, it simply saids "We plan, God laughs." It's on my refrigerator now, and it aptly describes my August this year! Because promptly on August 1st, after over 4.5 years with no big outbreaks, my vertigo abruptly returned. That entailed having to take some time off work, and not being able to do much of anything for the first week, with a gradual recovery, punctuated by setbacks, over the rest of the month. I'm still trying to get extra sleep each night, but as of September 1st, the symptoms are nearly completely gone (but they never completely vanished after the first time either).

So, needless to say, that quite delayed my plans for the month! I'm grateful that I still made pretty good progress with my craft projects, but everything else is behind. At least I was able to finish writing 'Tarreg,' resume progress on 'Renegade,' and especially that I've got a freelance editor lined up to go over Hu-Hua's Cry in October, but preparations for Triune are quite behind where I hoped they would be.

So what didn't get done in August is what's on my plate for September. Finishing up 'Renegade' first, though at least I won't need to have it polished up in order to launch into DWoT (acronym for the first Triune novel). Getting my prep-work done and starting in on DWoT is my top priority in September.

But there's the anticipated arrival of autumn as well, so hopefully I can start getting outside for exercise soon, enjoy a second visit to the State Fair, and spend a day at the MN Renaissance Festival. I have lots of cleaning on my plate as well, since the end of September will bring a visit from my brother and his van-full of my nieces and nephews. I'm very glad they're staying at the Towners instead of my place, but it will be great to see them!
