F2K nearing completion--what next?

I have completed my F2K lessons through lesson 6, and offered feedback to most of my classmates, enough for certification of completion.  The contest is still going on, and I have no illusions that I will win.  There simply are too many extremely talented writers in my classroom alone who will earn the right of best in class.  But that's ok.  I'm proud of every one of them.

My next project, when I can find time away from the library, will be to finish my 10+ year old YA novel, A Door in Time.  I thought about using it for NANOWRIMO this year, but my novel is no where near 50,000 words and probably never will be that long. So I'm just going to flesh my story out and edit as needed and then go for the marketing and publication.

I'm hoping to complete the rough draft at least by the end of the year.  This winter, I can work on the edits and rewrites, and then hopefully by next spring, I'll be ready to find a publisher.

My library job is coming along, however, I'm finding that doing most of the work by myself means I'm working a lot of unpaid overtime there.  Today I was there from 9:15 a.m. until 6:15.  The hours officially are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays.  So I will just turn in the regular hours, plus a couple perhaps.  

I hired my granddaughter to come in and help me with the cleaning. She swept floors and vacuumed carpets today.  Dennis gave her $20 for helping me.  I had planned on paying her something from my paycheck, but he is generous to a fault and always beats me to the punch.  I think I'll keep him.

We are watching Karsyn and Whitley, and their pets, again this weekend.  Whitley stayed for supper tonight of Lil' Smokies and eggs, and toast.  Tomorrow, Dennis is taking all the younger grandkids except Maliyah to Salina to shop for western wear.  Then they will eat at Coyote Canyon and go to the Rolling Hills Zoo.  I would love to go, but I desperately need to catch up on my housework, so I'm staying at home.  Maybe I'll get a chance to do a little writing if I work hard in the morning.
