Well, what a busy week so far – but I knew it would be that way before it started, and with the help of my list (see my post below) I have managed to get lots of things done, in between personal stuff like running Murphlet 2 back to Perth, and attending the younger Murphlets’ athletics carnival (our house won – yay!).
I haven’t crossed everything off the list, but I have made good inroads. So far I have:
1. Finished the edits on one of the two books. The second one is close to finished.
2. Marked the two batches of assignments and got them back in the mail.
3. Written one new review for Aussiereviews. Not the five I had set as a target, but a start.
4. Updated Aussiereviews. I uploaded five new reviews today – the one I wrote this week and four I wrote last week. I usually write the reviews as I finish the books, then upload in batches.
Still another day to go in the week, so hopefully I’ll get more things crossed off, but if not I’ll carry some of these things onto my new list for next week. My idea of a list is not to chastise myself for what I didn’t do, but to set targets and to also keep track of what I HAVE achieved each week.
I had a nice surprise in the today’s mail. My contributor’s copy of the new magazine Little Ears arrived, complete with my story, Woof. It is always wonderful toss my work in print, and to see it this brand new, quality magazine is pretty exciting. If you have children aged birth to about seven, you should check this magazine out. It’s wonderful!
Okay – back to work.
