Yes - late again. But yesterday was such a beautiful day I had to add a new objective - to enjoy the first real day of spring. Allegedly it got up to 12C, but sitting in the sun and out of the breeze it felt even warmer. I walked down to the end of Wellington West - maybe 20 minutes - then doubled back for a Bridgehead coffee. It was packed inside, so I sat in front on a bench soaking up the rays, adding to my Vitamin D. I've a book on the go - always do it seems - this one for my sci-fi book club. It's Air, by Geoff Ryman. Not that great for the first 40 pages or so, but was an assignment so I kept at it. Glad I did so, an interesting concept, and a good treatment of it. I have some criticisms too - will save for when our group meets.
But enough rambling - on to the objectives:
- editing - as I'd mentioned, found some good tips on revision via Holly Lisle, but have been trying to figure out a way to edit without printing out all some 300 pages. It's do-able - can output as a PDF and then edit/annotate that on my iPad via Notability, but I think I just need to bite the bullet, buy some toner and paper, and get to it. For all my desire to be flexible with using an iPad, sometimes I need to just sit quietly at home and work at it.
- short story - did the challenge for last Friday - based on a song. Good feedback. I like doing these, it gets me focused on a bit or writing that gets "published" out there, and it gives me largely positive feedback - an encouragement to keep on editing the bigger work
- blogs - staying current. Added yet another one to follow - Wordplay .
