In Process -- October 2015

First Draft

"Trepanneria and Scrimshawerie". Short story, not particularly satisfying, done. 
"Labyrinth Moon". Short story, much more satisfying. Done. 

Editing

I a little bit fell off the wagon with editing this month, and days went by where I didn't do anything except maybe crosswords and sudoku, mostly because I was so close to done with Lucky Kate that it needed some space. Eventually I dealt with this by typing some things up.
"Food Insecurity". typed this up and took out crap.
Something I noticed typing this is I really can't tell which pages were here to write and which were easy. so that's good.
Unfortunately while entering thechanges, I got stuck when I came across a spot where I needed to finish writing a scene I had somehow abandoned on the first draft.
"Lucky Kate". At the end of the month I was able to convince myself to go through it. Really, one more draft of this and done this time for sure.

Knitting

Rust Damask Jacket (Takle & Kolstadt). Almost finished first ball of dark rust. That was my goal for the month, and I've failed.  
Gift Item #2. Finished.
Gift Item #3. Half done.
Gift Item #4. 80% done.  
St. Anthony. This was finished back in... June maybe? I knew I wasn't going to wear it because I hated the neckline. Now I've come up with a plan, so before starting any other  gift items, I will finish it again. It's maybe a weekend's work, which is less than I thought. I'm just going to have to live with the too long sleeves. And I decided I like the body the way it is.
