I Breathed a Sigh of Relief…

How was your weekend? Mine went all right–although there were no papers to be had, so no comics or crosswords (mainly because there were no coupons to be had in those papers).

Don’t really know what to say. Monday and Tuesday, I got my latest editing project for the client-of-a-client wrapped up, so to speak. Very happy with those results (and so were they, so that’s good).

It would be cool if I could get feedback, sort of like the “no lessons in victory but 1,000 in defeat,” sort of deal. Although that doesn’t apply, because to be defeated, I would have had to give up on the editing project, gotten wrestled to the ground by my computer, or what-have-ya.

Which leads me to my next point…being finished is kind of a letdown, in a way. It’s like I’ve been pushing with all my might against a boulder, something suddenly clicks into place, the boulder moves, and I go flying through the air as I tumble to a stop as inertia gets the better of me.

I’ve been a little pathless, to a certain extent. Planning on getting back into writing, and I did discover how Word 2013 Track Changes works (they’ve moved things here and there, and changed some, and I wanted to get the hang of things).

Now, if I could only find the paper that has the word I wanted to use for my legendary boogeyman tribe on a foreign planet. I wrote it down, but I can’t seem to find out where it was. For a writer, there are times I don’t keep good track of paper, despite using a TON of it in my day-to-day life.

Something super-special has appeared to have happened, but I’ll have to make sure it fully solidifies, and then I’ll let you know–it’s not a big deal for others, but it is for me. Mainly because most other people are very used to this one thing in their lives, and I’m not.

Always have a plan in place, and something else in the pipe, so you can transition from one project to the next without that Pathless Wanderer feel, all right? I’ve been editing so long, writing fiction and blogging (even though I have been doing that) feels like flexing a strange muscle I forgot I had.

And don’t let that Strange Muscle Flex happen to you, either, if you can help it.

Until next time,
