New year, new events, new goals – same old anxieties. How do I get it all done?!
Juggling four part-time jobs in my “portfolio career” can be a challenge, but I’m determined to get a better handle on things in 2016.
I’ve found a neat little app call Wunderlist so the notes I make on my phone between classes will show up on my desktop To-do List at home. Because if I don’t write it down, it’s not likely to happen.
As much as I’d like to start every day with my writing, somehow I ended up with an 8 a.m. class two days a week this semester, so that’s not happening. If I focus on grading and prep on class days (M-W-F until May), Tuesday and Thursday can be writing mornings. Thanks to the thoughtful support of the Deadly Duo at Deadly Writes Publishing, I’m ready to dive into revisions/rewrites on the follow-up to FORTY & OUT. I’m committed to more regular blog posts on interesting stuff) and Antioch Writer’s Workshop duties plus miscellaneous marketing/business in the afternoon. Weekends are for catch up, plus maybe a little downtime.
Yeah, we’ll see. But I hope you’ll join me for the journey!
Someone is targeting Toledo’s single women when they turn forty, tucking them into bed and turning birthday greetings into obituaries.
