#Writemotivation April 22 REAL post.

1. The standard ones- Walked all week, crits caught up until the other 2 I’m waiting on land in the inbox, and 7 books read so far this month (an 8th should be done today at work, heh). Behind, but more focused on edits and life crap.
2. Outline SW2 and 3- As done as they’re getting until I do this edit pass.
3. Begin edits on SW1- Slowly wading through them. There’s a lot of stuff to do, some of it line level, some of it rewriting large chunks. Attacking what I can based on brain cells and time available. I really, really need more hours in my days sometimes.

Really, this month. Man. I will be GLAD to be done with it. In addition to the many horrible national events last week, I was stressed out about some personal life stuff. Nothing I want to really get into here, nothing bad either, exactly. Just a lot of things that need done, basically, and a lot of little frustrations adding up to a general feeling of frustration and not enough hours in the days. I’ve been on a cleaning/organizing spree at home, and social commitments have been eating up a lot of my time too.

Work’s been slow, so I’m getting bored in this job. It gets crazy busy some days, and then drops off a cliff of boredom. I think I’m going to seriously dent my paper TBR pile. (Biggest problem? We can’t use any wifi enabled devices in the work area. I have an old palm-pilot based Alphasmart dana without wifi that I would be able to transfer files to… If I can rewire it to take normal batteries because the old built in rechargeables dried out. I have instructions for it, but I just need time to sit down and do it! Mind you, I could just buy a replacement battery. I might end up doing that.)

May’s goals will be on next week’s post.

    Sounds like my job, except the “no internet” anyway.

      Pretty much, similar reasons. They’re paranoid about people’s info getting stolen. But… uhm… I could do more damage with paper and pen, frankly. Less of a trail and easier to smuggle. But it sounds good on paper, therefore they do it.
