Review of Interzone at Tangent Online

I'm happy to report that I have joined the staff of reviewers at Tangent Online and that my review of Interzone is up here:

My review of Quantum Coin, sequel to Fair Coin, by E. C. Myers, went up recently at Bryan Schmidt's sffwrtcht website:

Despite the extra review work I've taken on and the fact that the boys have been sick for a month, my short story writing and beta reading work is right where I want it to be. I also made brownies. What can I say? I can be pretty awesome. Hubby fixed the printer jam, though. ;)

How do you handle taking on new projects? I had to put some of my more far flung homeschool writing on temporary hold and organize my writing sessions to focus on a single project for several days in a row, to get the most out of myself. I also find it beneficial to let rough drafts sit for at least a week before editing them.

Day 77: Almost Everything

My procrastination bet paid off because tonight I finally felt well enough to write the drama scripts I need for tomorrow. Whew. The only thing I didn't get done was some beta reading. Keeping a weekly schedule helped my goals even when I didn't precisely keep it. Ahem.

And... the printer is jammed. Rawr.

Day 74: Running Out of Week

Spent a bit of time notecarding tonight because an idea I was rolling around in my brain finally picked itself up a theme. Plus, the week is looming to a close, which means that my writing obligations to other people - beta reading and planning my weekly drama class - are about to decide the rest of the week for me. The other things I never got to this week have deadlines that are malleable or far off.

Do you know what I am doing for my Drama classes for Monday? Both classes have created their own plot and written down scene notes and a few lines, which I am going to write into a script. I plan to have fun with that tomorrow!

Day 73: What Plan?

This is the first week that I've gone against my plan for the week. My best excuse is that I planned it thinking that the fam would be over this cold, and instead I face my greatest enemy... interruptions. ;) So I am getting things done, but odd, haphazard things...
