Year 2, Month 1, Day 22 of this Writing in Public challenge.
Day eight of writing the novel Heaven Painted as a Christmas Gift.
This turned out to be a good start to a new schedule I need to keep for about a week. So up around 2 p.m. as is my best time to sleep until in most cases. I did e-mail, then headed off to the snail mail, then the WMG office.
I worked there with the folks for a short time, then headed to my office to work on formatting Smith’s Monthly #11. I did one more cover for a short story in the issue and got into formatting the novel, The High Edge: A Seeders Universe Novel that is in the last part of the issue. So gaining on it. I should have the issue to the printer on Monday, with luck.
Then home for a little more e-mail, then the standard nap with the white cat, dinner, news, and dishes.
Then around 8:30 p.m. I went to work on getting financial receipts sorted and ready to be entered into a new financial program I am getting set up. I need to do that every night for a week to get everything ready to go to our accountant for him to check next week. Ahh, fun, but going to be great when done.
Here is the cover for Smith’s Monthly #11 that I am working on.
Then when Kris was ready to go up to the WMG offices at 10:30 p.m. I went with her and went back to work on Smith’s Monthly formatting. Then I fed the kitten and Kris and I headed home at 11:30 p.m.
Off to watch some television, then back into this office at 1:15 a.m. (New goal is to get in here around 1 a.m. to write, give or take. That’s a goal and won’t always be possible, I know that. (grin))
I got about a thousand words done on the book before 2:15 a.m., then took a quick break, did another 1,200 words by 3:30 a.m. Then I took another short break and did another 900 words by 4:15 a.m. Way tired, so tossing in the towel for the night instead of pushing on.
So a decent night. And a lot done today and I finally feel as if I have some control on the various projects. Yeah, that’s going to last, but for the moment it feels good. (grin)
