Days of Rest

If I had to pick two days of my week that felt like “days off” from writing, I would end up choosing Tuesdays and Fridays.This isn’t intentional.

This isn’t intentional, it’s just how it ends up feeling. Tuesdays are chatting and relaxing with friends. No matter how hard I try, it’s nearly impossible to get anything done. (I may have mentioned before that this is okay, although sometimes I forget it’s mostly a socializing event and try to get something accomplished, and feel frustrated.)

And Fridays are the end of a long week at the office, and inevitably with the youths relaxing with their entertainments, it’s easy to slip into mine as well.

At any rate.

Yesterday I wrote 275 blog words and edited for a total of about 30 minutes. 25, if we’re slicing hairs (which I am not, which is why I rounded). This morning I’m going to tackle the edit that stalled me yesterday involving a space ship. Then  I’m going to see if I can get to Chapter 34, putting me less than ten chapters from the end and hopefully allowing me to finish editing tonight so I can focus on the cover. I have a lot of work to do there.

Finally, I have no friends that need well-wishes and positive thoughts, but I do have a friend that deserves congratulations! At least, I think that’s the appropriate response. To be honest, I wasn’t sure when I first saw the article. It sounds like a lot of work and responsibility, and sometimes when people step down it’s not entirely good. Still, VP of SFWA sounds “more impressorial”, as Lisa would say (Morning Glory – hilarious film), and so yes. Congratulations ought to be appropriate.

  1. Thank you! Yes, there will be work involved. 😉

    Hooray for editing and for time spent relaxing with friends! Very important! (I’m coming next week. This week has been … interesting.)
