It just occurred to me that 6/6/66 is
going to be a very interesting day, psychologically speaking. If I
live to be 91 years old, I’ll be able to experience it first-hand.
Perhaps I should write a story set on that day. If I make it that
long, I could see if the fantasy lives up to the reality. By then,
maybe 90 will be the new 50, right?
But I digress…
If you missed it, last week Heidi
finished up the cover for the new blog serial draft, Falling in
Public. It’s just absolutely
perfect, and really captures the “Hollywood” vibe that I want for
this novel. Fabulous work as usual from My Creative Pursuits!
been thinking about podcasting lately. I started to type out my
thoughts on it here, and realized it would make this post several
hundred words longer than it needed to be. So stop in tomorrow for my
podcast ruminations (in text form, which is rather ironic, I think),
and to share your thoughts on the medium as a whole.

this week’s W.I.P. News cast if you missed it on the other blog:
I’m not ashamed to admit I pretty
much sucked in terms of getting my goals done last week. I kept up
with the serial novels and that’s really about it. I’m really
hoping to cross off the bulk of my business goals this week, because
it’s so much easier to just keep up than to catch up. I do think
I’ve hit a personal limitation (see next Thursday’s post at BTW)
with regards to writing, which is annoying. But things are still
moving forward, even though “turtle” seems to be my speed setting
at the moment.
Goals for the Week
scenes, plus reevaluate the TMM scene for this week.

out an interview I was sent last week
out interview questions to an author I’ll feature next week
by 12:30am to read. (I’m really going to get serious about this
one. I need more sleep, and knocking off work by 12:30 I could be
sleeping around 1a.m. If I know it’s a hard and fast rule, I’ll
be more diligent in getting stuff done earlier.)
That’s it for me
this week. I’m taking Friday off from the day job (a long story
involving the gas company, our meter, and all the recent flooding
around here), so that will give me a good chunk of day time to catch
up on business-type stuff.
your plate this week? Writing/business/personal – do tell me I’m
not the only one wading through a mile-long list at the moment…
