April 17 – Gettin’ it Done

After writing my devotional today, a process interrupted by a discussion re problems with email and waiting forever to deal with my webhost, I began working on my book. The book is just about ready to go to the publisher. (Self pub, but going through the process). I still need some front matter to include in the book and a fix on the cover. I had to strategize with my wife on the cover issue. I left to teach a chess lesson and then came home to get ready for a night of international cuisine with my wife. The college where she works has an amazing restaurant management program and tonight they served Asian food. It was great! Then, home to relax and deal with small things, not major things. Got news about a friend coming down to visit. I’m excited about that, too.

April 16 – Working Overtime

Ok, I didn’t REALLY work overtime. It was nice to have time that I could focus on my editing. I wrote my devotional this morning – 494 Words and then went to work on a course I’m taking in descriptive writing from Kelly Blanchard-Dale. Even old folks like me can learn from young folks like her. This week’s focus is on active voice, as opposed to passive voice. The writing sample I looked at made me realize that I use the passive voice more than I thought. I did a little bit of housework after that and then went back to editing the devotional book. I got 15 days worth done. I hope to finish June tomorrow and begin the final process of sending it to the publisher. I had chess clubs today and then cooked dinner in the middle of the editing times.
