Well, the first three days of the month went somewhat successfully. I did manage my transcription task (by almost twice my goal), and I managed the pencil-edits on a story. But then I got kind of involved in the editing process, and I decided that I’d do pencil edits on three stories. Which is still better than I’d been doing, of course.
My new set:
Nov. 4: Electronic edits on one story
Nov. 5: Mail out one story to three journals
Nov. 6: Transcribe & edit 2 pages
In other news, I’ve figured out how to make the ginger tea that I’ve been mad for since I had it at the local Thai place. It’s stupendously simple–boil X inches of thinly-sliced ginger in X cups of water for ten minutes, and then add a bit of sweetener of some sort. I added agave nectar to mine, though I think a mild honey would be an even better option. Right now, though, all I have is some super-robust German honey that is a bit too overpowering for beverages.
Sometime soon, too, you’ll be hearing about my new fountain pen obsession. Stay tuned.
