Tues. Jan. 14, 2014: The Project Stack

Jupiter Retrograde
Cloudy and mild

There’s a piece on Strand Books, one of my favorite bookstores, over on A Biblio Paradise.

Yesterday was a busy day, but a fun one. Up early, the usual yoga/meditation every morning. Some admin work, got a pitch out.

Then, into the car and drove to Brockton to meet with a potential new client. I was worried about the drive, but it was completely pleasant, and, along Rt. 106, even had some good memories — my grandmother, mother and I used to use 106 when driving between Foxboro and Plymouth. I thoroughly enjoyed myself during the meeting itself. The project is exciting, and I think I’d be an excellent person to help it reach its full potential. It’s a project where I not only have the ability to help bring it to fruition, but, because I’m genuinely excited about it. I’d also have the passion for it. Even more important, I could see myself working happily in the environment and with the people who would be my colleagues. It wouldn’t be just getting through it — it would be looking forward to going to work every day.

At this point, it’s out of my hands — either they think I’m the right person both for the job and the situation, or they don’t. There’s no way of knowing that until they either make me an offer or tell me they’re going with someone else. I just keep on doing what I do, and hope for the best. It would be an adjustment to work on site a few days a week, but I’ve been thinking about it for awhile — doing more on-site work.

Home, back to work, catching up on everything I missed while I was out. One of my late-paying clients ponied up, so I’ll finish off the last couple of articles, and when I get paid for those next month, I’m done with that publication.

Did the revision on the TALENT pilot script — will put the changes in today, and then I’ll have to write the synopsis for that one, too. My script package date was pushed back to March 4, at my request — I’m certainly not going to send it out during the Mercury Retrograde, and the original date fell smack in the midst of that. It also gives me a couple of extra weeks to make sure the material is polished to gleaming.

Today, I have a lot of prep work for tonight’s meeting, writing, and working with students. Hopefully, the other slow-paying client will cough up, as promised, and we can wrap things up.

To the page!
