What’s new this week?
A little progress on the writing front – I’ve finished 2 Chapters of The Perfidious Mister Wickham, and will probably get this week’s chapter posted either tomorrow or Tuesday... This counts as my ROW80 update, and I actually got a good bit of editing done on my critique of Steven Pressfield’s The Warrior Ethos.
I also got in my yoga class for the week, and though I’m not teaching language (yet) I did study both Russian and French, and in fact I found a neat, free tool for anyone learning a Romance language - French, Italian, Spanish, etc. - http://www.duolingo.com/ - so far I've done the basic course (4 lessons) for French, and I really like it!
As for dating, I think I’m going to take that one a bit slow... The gene pool seems to be a little shallow around here, but who knows, perhaps I’ll be happily surprised.
No bucket list adventures to report, but I did have a good time up in Charleston with my little brother, playing Dominant Species and watching the UFC fight...
And I got nothing much done in terms of networking or the new economy, but I listened to some greatTED Talks on a playlist featuring conversations about the open-source future.
A short update, but it is what it is... In the coming week I’ll focus on:
- Posting Chapter 32 of The Perfidious Mister Wickham,
- Posting on GypsyDangerously
- Final edits and e-publishing of Ho B-52 (short story)
I’ll have to squeeze in one weekday yoga class so that I can get up early to Charleston next Saturday to run in the rUndead 5K, and try to make sure I get around to:
- Scheduling language classes for my Marines
- Joining Lowcountry RWA
- Joining AirBNB
- Reducing my personal carbon footprint by getting a kayak and paddling to work...
But all that requires some rest, so off to bed I go!
Wishing everyone a happy and productive week,
