I’m on schedule. Every thing I listed as critical to do today is done. I made 100 shrink wrapped bundles, sorted the invoices, and printed the postage. The trouble is that tomorrow is filled with package preparation. Monday I’ll drop the packages at the post office. Monday will also have accounting which includes quarterly reports. Monday should also include shipping merchandise to Lunacon and shipping art to auction winners. I have copy edits for Sharp End of the Stick to enter as soon as I can. I need to start putting together the cover for SEOS. I haven’t begun the footnote boxes yet. There are still white spaces in the book. I have loose art to put in them, but it isn’t done yet. All of it needs to be done before the end of the week. We need to have SEOS delivered to us by the first week of June so that we can have the shipping event done before we head to Deep South Con. Then there are the things which need to begin this week, like work on the cover design class I’m helping to teach and assembling my sampler book in time to get it copy edited. Convention season has begun for Howard. The next two months are going to be a scramble just to keep up with the buffer. We hope he can also work on the bonus story for the next book too.

And then there is the family stuff.

On energetic days I look at all that and I’m ready to dive in to get it done. Today is a tired day. Today I need to stop looking at the big picture and just focus on what is right in front of me. Up next, rest so that tomorrow I can work.
