Today was my flex day and I had a pretty good list of projects. This was the list:
- Editing on Serang
- Work up three small critique sections
- Send out the shtick for a new Lisa Burton Radio show
- Read more of a fantastic novel
I got a lot done, but never got all the way to reading.
I started with the interview shtick and got it out the door. This author is looking for a mid July date so I have plenty of time to schedule and get it assembled once it’s in my hands.
The critiques are important to me. When you’re in a crit group, those people are there for you and you have to be there for them. I scratched this off the list.
When it came to Serang, I changed a few minor wordings, and one sentence that made no reasonable sense at all. Funny how those things still manage to slip through at this late hour. I never got all the way through the MS, so this one remains on my weekend list.
When it comes to the weekend, my slate is pretty clear. I can get all the way through Serang, then dedicate my time to reading. I don’t have to start on The Viral Blues edits yet, so if I get that far it’s a bonus.
I also have my next Expansion Pack roughed out for Story Empire. I’m not up again for a while, so I have time to spiff it up. I like to schedule them one ahead, so I might even deal with that in the evenings. Blogging doesn’t quite seem to demand the concentration the other projects do.
The expansion packs are doing okay, but I’d like to see them do better. These are the helpful ideas I have right now, so I’m not moving on until that well dries up.
All told, it was a productive day. I’d like to have done more, but really can’t complain. Back to the office tomorrow.
