It’s been a banner week!

A well-deserved glass of wine

There are weeks when, as a writer, I don’t feel so accomplished. This morning, I had one of those moments … and then I did a tally of what I got done this week:

 

Gave feedback on a friend’s synopsis

Gave feedback on another friend’s short story

Gave feedback on Chapter 1 of yet another friend’s novel

Designed and mailed out the 34 Orchard Issue 3 announcement postcards

Created the back cover copy for Tidings (my husband did most of that—he used to market books, so …)

Watched Aliens and recorded the 10th anniversary episode of Dark Discussions (I can’t believe it’s been a decade!)

Completed edits on several of the stories for 34 Orchard

Finished several sets of tiny newspapers for my annual holiday chapbook mailing … I have to make 320 sets; I have only 114 to go!

 

I guess I really did deserve that bottle of wine and a nice early bed time last night!

Back to work!

  1. Wow, you did have a productive week!

    • Right??? I really was sitting here feeling like a loser, and then I went over it an my head and thought, uh…NO. I did more in one week then lots of people do in two or three — and I worked at my day job too! I guess drinking coffee helps.
