At Least So Far…
Winds are howling, but not bad for a coast storm. We are getting hit with about 70 mph gusts here. We are used to this.
A much, much smaller storm hit the first day of the Master Business Class as people were trying to get here. People who never been in a coast storm found that one to be a worry. That had gusts around 40 and less rain than this one. We have about five or six at this level a year. When they start warning of gusts over a hundred is when we pay attention. (grin)
And just to give a summary before I detail out the day, I got my 10,000 steps done and I wrote a short story. Third in three days.
And I got all the December workshops ready to go on Teachable.com.
My Day Went Like This…
Made it to the writer’s lunch at 2 p.m. at the WMG offices, stayed until a little after 3 p.m. and then headed to our bookstore. I spent the next two hours there, working in the back room, trying to clear out what I could. I have almost managed to clear one corner and have been finding all sorts of treasures.
Then I went back to the WMG offices to work on workshop stuff, mostly moving videos there. As they loaded, I moved shelves in the north store because we are in the process of turning one back area of the store into another office.
So I would get some videos moving to Teachable, then go get a shelf off a wall, then load up more videos, then get another shelf, all the while going the long way around to get steps. So not only did I get 10,000 steps today, I did a lot of lifting and moving of stuff.
Home by 7:30 p.m. after grocery shopping. I cooked dinner and took a nap.
Back up at the WMG offices by 9:30 and worked there doing the same things I did earlier until midnight.
Back home to do email and then watch some television. So I didn’t get to my writing computer until 2:30 a.m.
Saw a half-title I thought would be a good full title. “That Human Fear.”
Typed it in and started a third Cold Poker Gang short mystery story.
At 3:30 a.m. I took a break at 1,000 words. Got back to writing at 4 a.m. and finished the 1,700 word story by 4:30 a.m.
Lights only flickered once the entire time.
So far, here is the November Short Story Challenge. (10th through 30th.. I will have covers in a few days as well.)
1… Under the Skin of Death… 4,400 words…. Total words so far… 4,400 words.
2… Half a Clue… 3,700 words… Total words so far… 8,100 words
3… That Human Fear… 1,700 words… Total words so far… 9,800
So total writing time today… 2 hours.
Total work time… 8 hours.
