It's Wednesday already?

Well that came too quickly for me this week.

I got a whole 166 words written since Sunday on "The Page & the Magician".

Other things done since Sunday's check-in:

- Laundry including putting it away (which is practically unheard of, but I'm trying to clean my place and keep it clean).
- Contacted my financial advisor to start talking about taxes as a writer.
- Started knitting a replacement lanyard for my work badge as I ran out of spots to staple on the original one and haven't seen any new ones to buy that weren't covered in names of beer brands.
- Completed Quiz 2 of my Coursera course "Learning how to learn".
- Evaluated 5 peers.
- Wrote a business case and a project charter for a project I'm managing at my day job.
- Took chances.
- Read some chapters in Wuthering Heights.
- Figured out next steps for me in roller derby refereeing.
- Corrected my sword grip for my martial art.
- Learned about chunking as part of learning.
- Began an email-based course called "How to become a morning person", so I can get more writing time in each day.

So I guess I got a lot done, just not on my book.

Tomorrow is a new day to try again.

Ciao,

  1. Goodness, I would say you got a lot done! Holy cow. I don't quite know how you measured the goal, "took chances", but kudos to you anyway. You're having a fantastic week.

  2. What a neat, eclectic mix of achievements. I especially liked the fine tuning of the sword hold with 'chunking' learning! :) From Sunday to Weds always seems a bit fast for me as well, but we will focus and make progress. Have a good week. Even with writing.

  5. Sounds like you've stayed pretty busy! It's so nice to keep lists of things you HAVE accomplished, isn't it? Even though you may not have accomplished exactly what you wanted, you can see that you have accomplished many things! Great job. :-)

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
