Cloudy and humid
My head’s going to explode.
Got two short articles done and out. Sent out more pitches. Got a response from a publication which would like some articles, so I have to think of something.
Did some research for upcoming articles.
Worked on an ebook that I hope to have available in the early fall. I even have a design for it – let’s hope I can pull it off.
Did some project planning, which feeds into the Goals, Dreams, and Resolutions.
Logo design comes next.
Caught up on blogs and some other emails.
Rewrote the end of Chapter 10 of Tracking Medusa and I’m much happier with it. I still have to tweak it a bit to make it believable that that section of Candlemaker Row would be empty enough at night for the attack – even though there are times at night during Festival when it has a lull and it could happen. It just seems odd that it would. And, I got to put in a short comic relief scene after the attack.
So, they’re off to Edinburgh Castle and to dig around in the libraries in the next few chapters. I want to get them done this week. It’s such a fun piece.
Nice morning’s work on Good Names. They’re waiting for the police and trying to get the children off so as not to be exposed to the murder, but of course, the children want to know what’s going on!
Off to the theatre today. No idea if I have to stay for the show, or if I get to come home.
The basement is closed until mid-September for asbestos clean-up. Good thing I can do my laundry elsewhere. Ick. And does this mean our windows need to stay closed until then? Would be nice if they actually gave us some information.
