Old list! Also posting very late, but this is where I was at midnight... :couch:

  • Send very scary email
  • Finish assignment
  • Organise folder of chaos
  • Finish chapter 3 of The Life and Lies of Albus Potter
  • Post revamped chapter 1 of The Skull Beneath the Skin
  • Edit untitled one-shot
  • Respond to five reviews

Life and Lies is almost done, I just got distracted last night when I was supposed to be writing the ending :$ The plan is to get it completed today, since there should be less than 1k left to write! I also wrote a new one-shot which is a spin-off of that fic so... it kind of counts? The one-shot is with a lovely person who's looking over it so that's progress, but it's not done being edited. And I have zero excuse for the folder of chaos.

New list!! Here's hoping I do better this time :P (To be done by Friday night, but the ones with asterisks are time-sensitive for Monday, so please do poke me if I'm on here or Twitter tomorrow!)

  • Refill prescriptions*
  • Organise folder of chaos*
  • Make photocopies/print out notes for new student*
  • Research for marketing assignment*
  • Research for management assignment*
  • Write management assignment*
  • Decide on uni open days to attend*
  • Call unis to organise open day visits
  • Call P uni re: entry requirements
  • Call vet to schedule operation for dog
  • Call restaurant re: seating reservations
  • Book tickets for Saturday
  • Write and complete chapter four of The Life and Lies of Albus Potter
  • Work on chapter three of The Skull Beneath the Skin
  • Finish editing and post untitled one-shot
  • Respond to 8 reviews

So much to do, so little time... :rip:
