How was your weekend? Mine was relaxing. Although it was interesting.
I didn’t post last week at all–both phone lines (and thus my internet, at this point), were kaput. Until Tuesday.
Then a bunch of feedback had come in on some edits I’d done, so I was busy incorporating changes and new footnotes, as well as looking up citations.
As my youth symphony conductor used to say “It’s crunch time.” Which means you may not hear from me this week, other than today. (By the way, the conductor still leads the symphony–I just don’t attend/help out there anymore. Nobody died or what-have-ya).
Anyway, I’ll be eyeballs deep in pixels. That’s a thing with writing–for all the glamor, glitz, and so on people think this profession dishes out, there is still work involved. And sometimes it’s the get-up-early-stay-up-late-and-don’t-indulge-hobbies sort of work.
At least for a time. Things have an opportunity to calm down, but if the client likes your work…you know what can happen there.
With work as well as relaxation, sometimes they’re given, sometimes you have to step up and grab the opportunities, of both types.
Until next time,
