counting angels on the head of a pin  

I had this glorious idea that I’d get the WALKING DEAD revisions done this week. I believe the phrase I am now searching for is “bahahahahah”. I shouldn’t have any problem getting them done by the end of the month as long as I get at least one read-through done this week, but I had such hopes for getting not only the revisions, but also the Morrigan Press short story, a Chance script, and the first Mia chapter/script also done this month, so that my plate would be Totally Clear for Nanowrimo.

Realistically, out of those non-revisions projects, the only one with a deadline is the short story, so if I can manage to get *it* done before the end of October I’m in good shape.

I clearly have not yet actually grasped this “slow down” thing I’ve been talking about.

- finish the outline/handout for the “developing your writer’s voice” class
- visualization class handout/outline
- dialog class handout/outline
- read through all of the critique submissions
- do a critique writeup on one of them
- start reading WD for revision purposes

See? See? This is what I mean by your work ethic!

PS: Slow down. :)

*laughs* The thing, perhaps, is that because I have no boss or properly structured job, what would simply be somebody else's workday that didn't require a list ends up being my list to make sure things get done. :)

Slow down. Right. I'm working on that... :)

This is me, not holding my breath. :)

And I might note that one of the reasons you're a successful writer is because you do that list-making foo. Too few people understand the self-discipline required for it. I struggle with that. I lack what Stephen King calls "Butt Glue." You're a great example of talent + discipline = success as a writer, and you're thus an inspiration for me. I mean that sincerely.

(By the way, do you prefer Catie or Kit? I love the nickname Kit, especially since I know Kat, whom I call KitKat. It's like you two are part of a great candy bar team. ;))

Well, thank you. I'm glad to be inspirational! :)

I am equally fond of Catie and Kit. I generally introduce myself and sign things as Catie, because that's the name I grew up with, but I've been Kit online for fifteen or so years now, and I not only respond to it naturally, I am bizarrely possessive of it: I get vaguely offended when I meet other people named Kit. :)

No breaking off a piece of that KitKat bar! O.O! :)
