Month 3, Day 2 of this Writing in Public challenge.
Day thirteen of the new novel called Against Time.
I rolled out around 2 p.m. once again today. By 3:30 p.m. I had been to the snail mail post office and was at WMG Publishing offices.
I spent the next hour keying in corrections for Smith’s Monthly #1 that we had found in the paper proof and then got it launched. Paper copies should be here early next week.
Then I put the entire file for the first issue together to get upstairs at WMG so that they could format it in a nifty new way and get it launched electronically. They are working on ways to hold formatting in electronic easily and as soon as we have it under control, we’ll tell everyone how to do it.
Then I spent an hour putting together a short story collection.
I got home around 6:30 p.m. for the standard nap with Walter White Kitty, dinner, and dishes.
Here’s a picture of Walter in my office nagging me to take him downstairs for a nap. I am sitting in my internet computer chair. That’s my writing chair he’s in.
So after dinner I got going on the homework for the online workshops around 8:30 p.m. and then headed to WMG again to work on workshops and keep putting collections together.
I got home at midnight and Kris and I headed for the basement to watch some television. I made it back up here and finished the workshop stuff by 2 a.m.
Then I went over to my writing computer.
I managed three sessions in just over two hours, with very short breaks. Like two minute breaks. In all three I managed 2,900 words.
I am going to need at least one medium day and one large day to finish this thing in 15 days. Chances are the medium will be tomorrow with all the meetings. But Friday might give me the day to power to whatever ending shows itself. That’s the plan, anyhow.
