This is one of those days where I had a lot of little things to get finished. Any one of them doesn't seem like much, but they add up. I tore into them with gusto, but my gusto is about exhausted.
Here is a list of the items I tackled:
- Picked a section and sent off my critique submission to that group.
- Made some artwork for a group promo I have going on.
- Made a final proof for a Lisa Burton Radio post and sent it out.
- Sent out a questionnaire for Lisa Burton Radio.
- Sent out a micro-fiction for an anthology. (I promised to try writing a short story too. By September 7th.)
- Wrote posts for the Second Notebook blog tour. (Seven down, five to go.)
- Prepared a post for an October event I was invited to. This host wanted it copy and paste ready, so there was a learning curve. I haven't heard back as to whether I did it right or get to try again.
- Got a new piece of Lisa Burton art. Catalogued it and stored it for future use. It has nothing to do with the second Experimental Notebook.
- Assembled and scheduled this week's Lisa Burton Radio.
Like I said, they're small things. Somehow, in bulk, they managed to eat up about seven hours.
This is what I do when I get a day off. I probably missed some things, and neglected a few I should have done. When the list gets big, I hit it hard and clean up the mess later. Many of these things have deadlines, and cannot wait. Tomorrow the paycheck job beckons.
I could do more. There are still five more blog tour posts to write. Somehow I think I'm done today. I kind of feel like this old picture of Otto.
