Here it is almost midnight on a Sunday night and I’m still up. Vicki was a sweetheart and packed up my lunch/supper for me tonight – it is waiting in the fridge and on the counter so all I have to do in the morning is grab it – thank goodness. One more thing after this blog posting and then I’m off to bed with things mostly done that I needed to get done… mostly…
Well I had a lot on my to do list and most of it is done or at least in a better place than I was on Friday. Alex’s 30th birthday party was yesterday and I think we had a good time with everyone who showed up. At one point we were segregated by gender which I found amusing – no matter how far we progress we still can’t get away from the stereotypes.
My paper which is due on Friday is going – I think I have a good rough draft for it. Tomorrow instead of book editing class I have a meeting with the professor to discuss the project. I’ll have to see how that goes. I’ll be interested to hear what she has to say about my stuff so far.
For fiction writing I managed to get all the stuff done that needs to be done for tomorrow but I need to take some time to review the critiques I got from both the professor and the other students. At least I think I should – though part of me thinks I should just write the story the way I wanted to in the first place. I think if I hadn’t edited it down for a publication requirement it would be a stronger story. Anyways I need time to do this – now it is just a matter of finding the time.
I also got a side job of transcribing. I worked on that this weekend too. I still have about 9 minutes left to do. This has to be done before Friday. I have a few things due all at once – isn’t that how it usually goes?
