All those people who asked what I was going to do with all this time once Jemima started Kinder? Well, yes. They can stop asking silly questions in future, can’t they?
Today was the first week I had the full three days (it alternates, two and then three) and it didn’t feel like nearly enough to get anything done – though at the same time I did get quite a lot done, AND had time to have a cold (seriously, my child starting school is the closest I ever get to sick leave) and had time to read and breathe and keep up with the washing up.
It’s like I don’t know myself any more.
My main problem, as I see it, is that I hit my month’s wordcount goal a few days ago, and while I promptly set myself a ‘stretch goal,’ I obviously didn’t believe in it because I haven’t written a word since.
Also, finally, FINALLY, I finally ticked off the final stages of the SFWA Bulletin that has been filling my world since I committed to it back before Christmas. It is in the hands of printers and e-book designers now, and off my desk which means I can be fond of it again. I’m proud of what we did with it, but it’s going to be a while before I volunteer again to take on an editing job…
There’s this other project that has been waiting in the wings, ready to fly. Tehani and I have been plotting the Cranky Ladies of History anthology, featuring a bunch of exciting authors and even more exciting historical women of note. Tehani blogs about the project here.
