I managed to get my next test in the AWC block taken in 6 weeks instead of 3 months, but it still hasn’t been graded,and its been a week since I submitted it. That means my timeline is in the toilet. There is now no way I can finish it with several weeks between tests. Not before October. But the good news is I don’t have to devote so much of my time to it. I have an extra year tacked on now till the next board meets, so I can focus more energy on my writing.
I took a flyer on something this week that won’t likely pan out, but it will be a game changer if it does. I’ll speak more about that if something happens. I’m not holding my breath.
I ‘m on another adventure this week and next, I’ll discuss that on the aftermath also. Sorry to keep you hanging.
I started playing Angry Birds a little more than a week ago, and I don’t recommend it to anyone that wants to have a life. It’s like crack, I wouldn’t be surprised if I disappeared for 3 days and then showed up having not eaten or bathed. Avoid the game at all costs. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I am in the middle of reading 5 books at the same time, 2 are hardcover and 3 are electronic. I need to focus on one and knock it out. I read in between other stuff, like waiting at Jiffy Lube, or the down time when I’m flying. I have a long sortie later today that I’m not primary on and will have hours of time to write and read. My laptop battery is teh suck, so I will only get an hour or so to write before it conks out. So the rest of the time will be reading time.
I am looking at getting a wireless keyboard for my iPad, the downside is that I have to use a Pages, and that doesn’t use the same fonts. I’m not sure it will matter, but its annoying. Dropbox is so damned cool, I use it on all my devices and it allows me to move between platforms almost seamlessly, if I had word for the iPad it would be perfectly seamless.
I’m still trying to figure out Google +, it is easy to get on and add friends to circles, but I haven’t really done much with it yet. I think it will be cool, when I’m ready to start marketing though. If you want to try it and haven’t let me know and I’ll try to throw you an invite.
I think I am past a roadblock on my Novel and should be able to fly to the end now. Yeah right!
Have a great weekend everyone!
