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. :-)

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

I've been busy. Really busy. Life: - Making food for two long weekends (Comiccon and an Iaido seminar) - Finishing my costume for Comiccon, which is in 5 days! (Carnival Punk Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Went to On the Brink on Friday to hear authors read. Won a book and bought a Steampunk anthology. - In training this week for work (off-site) and it's an early start for me Writing: - Editing The Page & The Magician (just finished Chapter 3) - Finished a short story called The Blood Waitress Club , which is on revision 3 and I'm just waiting for feedback before I put it up on Smashwords - I've been trying to write short stories that may fit into some anthology, but I find it harder to write with some specific criteria in mind rather than coaxing the words from my soul Guitar: - We are learning a lot of songs (Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Green Day, Black Eyed Peas, Bare Naked Ladies, Simon & Garfunkel, ABBA, Ed Sheeran, The Animals, John Fogerty, Ian Thomas) - I hav
