Mutivity Monday

mutivity ~ tendency to alter

It’s nice to be back on-line. I never knew how much I was addicted to enjoyed the internet until I was without it for a couple of days. However, it was all to the good. I got lots accomplished.

No internet meant no games, so it forced me to do other things instead. Like reading, and working on my writing and . . . did I mention the reading? :-)

Wednesday I went on a short road trip with a friend. We were following the directions from a road trip brochure she’d picked up at the local tourist office, and the directions left much to be desired. I’m not sure we followed the actual route faithfully, but we didn’t get too lost and our route involved poutine for lunch, so it was all good.

I ended up having some major formatting issues with my chapbook, but these have all been taking care of and I have a proof copy finished. Looks pretty good if I do say so myself. I just need an ISBN number for it, finish the “X” form and come up with something for “About the Author”. The cover came out better than I’d hoped for and the hand stitching looks good.

Missed Saturday’s Grappling With Grammar post, through no fault of my own. Which means I was using my lack of internet and lap top as an excuse not to write it on the other computer and put it on a USB key to upload from someone else’s computer.

Still haven’t got my brochures done. *sigh*

This Week’s Schedule:

Tuesday: Time for a new set of Wonders. This time around it’s the Natural Wonders of the World.

Wednesday: Another hump day hunk for your viewing pleasure. ;-)

Thursday: This week’s poetry form is the Jagati.

Friday: Chapter 40 of Fire.

Random Thoughts

Today: A rant about upgrades.

Wednesday: Chapter 17 of my on-line serial Shades of Errol Flynn. So, is Jessica’s father going to mount a rescue?

Saturday: Grappling With Grammar this week is all about active versus passive.

Elsewhere in my week:

Back to answering e-mails. I was just about caught up when I lost access to the internet last week. I should probably catch up on my blog reading too.

Get my brochures designed and printed out. This will be moving to the top of my priority list, I think.

Get the edited version of An Elemental Wind sent off.

Print out the poems I’m going to read later this month and start practicing.

And in case you missed it last week, Jamie DeBree has a new blog called Rattles. Check it out. There’s a very interesting picture by Heidi Sutherlin of Creative Pursuits. The challenge is open to all comers to write a story between 800 and 1,000 words using the picture as inspiration. The best stories will have a chance to receive $25 and a chance of publication. You don’t want to miss out!

And that’s it for me this week, barring any unforeseen disasters like last week. How about you? What are you up to now that summer’s winding down?
