What? It’s when? Thursday? Holy crap! Ahem – Hi there. As you might guess, I’ve been a bit busy this past week. For the most part, it’s been all good (if you overlook the whole ‘taking my quotes to the college paper out of context’ bit) but its left me very little time to blog. So here’s the week in a nutshell:
- Work has been very productive. I managed to get a jump on a new handbook for my staff and I’m really pleased with how its turning out. Considering the last handbook was written in 2006, I’ve got four years of data, procedures, and policy to update. It’s a challenge.
- Genie Memories is now three chapters closer to being finished. That makes me very happy. I’ve been struggling with the last chapters because all the tension and conflict is of a different variety than I’m used to writing. It’s making me a better writer, but it does make for some nights of me staring at the screen, repeating the mantra ‘It’s a draft, it can suck … but dude, this just totally sucks.’ Then I push past it and I’m all ‘Damn, this rocks.’
- I’m healthy again and running. That just makes me feel good all over. My new and desperately needed ASICs Gel-Nimbus 11 shoes should arrive on Friday. That will make my feet happy.
And to conclude, I leave you with a quote, passed on via Twitter by Steven Gould (a VP instructor):
RT @markokloos: Writers are a contradictory blend of supreme confidence and debilitating insecurity, held together with booze and/or chocolate.
