Thurs. April 12, 2012: Flurry of Paperwork

Lots of computer work yesterday, working with students, admin for Saturday’s workshop, polishing lectures, getting the pages ready for ebook conversion, admin in other areas of my life, gathering papers for taxes (I was more scattered than I should be this year keeping track of receipts, and I’m paying the price). The only day I have to finish my taxes is today. Tomorrow, I’m going out and I have to do the final prep for Saturday’s seminar; Saturday I’m teaching all day. I COULD have done them on Sunday, but here Monday is a holiday (Patriot’s Day) so the post office isn’t open. MA taxes aren’t due until Tuesday, but the Federal have to go out by Saturday. That means finishing them today.

We’re in the revision process in the year long (while working on the next novel), and the One Story Many Voices first stories were due yesterday. For some reason, it’s a shorter workshop this time around –3 weeks instead of the usual four, so I’ve done some rearrangement. The afternoon sprints in company are working well for me (heck, I wrote a little over 1800 words yesterday and I even like most of them). The revisions on Book 1 make Book 2 much easier.

I need to focus on taxes and the workshop for the next few days, and then get back to novel deadlines.

This is the last chance to sign up for the Dialogue Dilemmas and Solutions Workshop (and the only time it will be offered online this year), so please do so here.

Dates will be announced for Amazing Antagonists and Setting Up Your Submission System early next week, along with those registration pages.

I’ve got to run to yoga (I need it), but then it’s a frenzy of paper all day long!

  1. Good luck with the taxes.

  2. I am also suffering through the same tax hell. This year, not so bad as I was a bit more organized than I thought, and he’s handling them all. Amen.

    • It’s my own darned fault. Usually, I’m good about keeping all the paperwork together.
