I signed up for overtime for the next couple of weeks, so y’all won’t be seeing much of me here. I will be working 80 hours next week and hopefully 80 more for the week after that. The reason for the bell-to-bell insanity is simple: it’s Christmas and I want to give some people good gifts this year and I want to be able to hire an editor for my next novel… and maybe finally get myself a Blu-Ray player. The output might decrease, but since I have WordPress on my readers, I can still keep up with a post a day. It’s not going to be the full 500 words, but I hope to have something up for you to read.
The schedule change doesn’t mean, however that I am going to take a hiatus from writing. I am taking along my Nook which has a word processing program, so I can at least write during breaks and lunch. I might try to work on something else while I’m there. While the program is compatible with my version of Word, I hate having the notion of uploading every evening with my head being a little fuzzy. Besides, I have a lot of ideas I would like to get out onto… electrons? Photons? Well, it isn’t paper, that’s for sure! 😀 I might start something and just start running with it – not like most of my projects where I have major scenes plotted out already. I’ll flip through my book and see what catches my eye. I wish that work hadn’t blocked Zoho, I could cut and paste stuff there and work on it at home and away as it were. I know why they did that (cut and paste your way to free money!), but I find it to be awfully inconvenient. It’s almost like they want me to focus only on what they want when I am there. How rude! 😀
Anyways – this will my last few days of a normal schedule. I am hoping to use the December paychecks to get editors and a website going. This reminds me, I need to contact Gator Host and see about using Stripe and WordPress on their site. I know they have their own processing company, but I want to be able to use Stripe since they only charge per transaction and no monthly fees. See – I can use my work knowledge outside the office. Now, all I have to do is take a shower to wash the unclean feeling off of my skin.
On the upside – no Christmas music at work! The ‘on hold’ music is the same lame Pan Flute music they sold to you late night. Hooray for progress!
Well, off to that shower since I’m running late. Have a good day everyone.
