I have been busy – with one thing or another – since my last post. I don’t have the freedom of posting from work in the middle of the day since I retired in July. I now share the computer with my wife full-time.
I have been doing some reading – currently J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarilion and working at my manuscript; still untitled and still “stuck” in the same spot. Having so much “free time” makes it harder for me to manage how I use it. This also cuts into my time for Bible study and working on related materials.
I am occasionally able to post some HubPages writing, but not as often as when I was writing from work. I guess I really do miss at least that aspect of my eight daily hours; forty hours a week. I guess I just need to be a little more organized. I had hoped for 90 to 120 minutes of “me-time” each day to work on such projects. I just need to “do it” now.
I believe we probably all have similar problems dividing up our days and using them in the best ways possible.
I have a promise from a woman on LinkedIn to be one of her final proofreaders on her current writing project. I’m not sure what stage she is in, but it sounds promising and challenging, both. I will keep everyone apprised of the progress of this and the ups and downs of a professional proofreader. This, of course, will necessitate my budgeting of each day. I need more jobs to keep me on the right track.
Please stay in touch and I will try to post more often.
