I’ve just finished my IT job of six years, and now I’ve got a week to get my life in order before my new job starts.
It’s nice being able to get a full nights sleep, heh. I need to take more holidays.
What I’m Reading
It’s been a super busy week, so I’m still on Wes Chu’s excellent THE LIVES OF TAO. When I’m done, I’ll be moving onto BLOOD AND FEATHERS: REBELLION, the sequel to one 0f my favourite 2012 releases. It’s a good month for reading.
What I’m Writing
Editing is going pretty good — 50% done!
I hate editing, quite fiercely, so I’m glad I’ve finally got a system that works for me. These edits are being done entirely long-hand on a print out — the typing up will come afterwards, and it’ll be interesting to see how long that takes.
What Inspires Me Right Now
You lot are my main inspiration just now. Thank you for writing away, writer friends, and encouraging me to keep up the hard work. Sorry I haven’t been as active in the comments — I’ll remedy that shortly.
The Rainymood site, as always, remains my loyal companion and concentration aid.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Two driving lessons down! I’m still at that awkward stage where I have to think about everything I’m doing, and eventually I fumble under all the different steps and do something stupid like hit the brakes instead of the accelerator. I can’t wait until that fabled moment drivers have been telling me about, when I start doing part of the work automatically.
I’m only two hours in, though. That’s something I really have to keep in mind when I start getting annoyed at myself for not picking it up faster.
Got a haircut tomorrow and another driving lesson at the weekend. With a bit of luck I’ll be able to sneak a gym trip into my schedule too.
Busy times! And now it’s back to editing I go…
