I’ve been working on variations of the left cover for my new Cinderella series. Yesterday evening I happened to see that someone else had used the exact same stock image for their Cinderella book. Part of what’s funny is that I’d hated the “toilet paper stuck on the dress” look of the stock image and had been trying all sorts of things to hide that part of the dress. I guess not everyone had that same negative reaction to the train :). Ah well, the hurdles in the life of an author – time to start again! What are you guys working on today?
The White House has blocked CNN, LA Times, NY Times from a briefing; Breitbart was allowed in. This is the Twilight Zone. Also, Trump is pressuring news organizations to publicly print the names of ALL sources – he says unnamed sources shouldn’t be allowed. Because, you know, Nixon and “Deep Throat”.
I just finished my morning yoga routine – it was warm enough to do it on the back porch! In February in Massachusetts! This is insanity :). And I’m not even talking “a nip in the air” warm. I’m talking t-shirt and shorts weather. Time to send another round of emails to my reps. Sure, it’s nice for today – but it bodes very poorly for the planet as a whole, which I care about. #climatechange
Evening meditation time. Today was a wildly hectic day on little sleep – I’m exhausted and turning in early! Tomorrow is even busier, so I need to be firing on all cylinders from the moment I wake up :). One step at a time! #namaste
Stage 2 is done – all the fiction responses have now been sent out. If you submitted a fiction entry for the Spring Mused issue, check your emails! The last step is poetry – I’m working on that now!
Evening meditation time. We all start life young. If we’re lucky, we all become old. Those of us with ability need to watch over and help those who are vulnerable. #namaste
Today’s first all-day-long task is done :). All of the Mused non-fiction entries have been handled and the status letters have now been sent out! If you submitted a non-fiction piece to the Mused Literary Review, check your email :). Next up is fiction! Of course, when I lifted my head to breathe for a second I saw the transgender news and that was fairly depressing. But I have to shake that off and plow ahead!
Evening meditation time. I think I am just heading to sleep. I’m too exhausted to focus right now. I wouldn’t want to mis-send a Mused letter by accident to the wrong person – better to wait! Tomorrow will be a fresh day! #Namaste
Evening meditation time. I’m back from my networking dinner and ready to crank on work. Most of Mused is now voted on. Now it is all about focusing on reading the poetry – and we have quite a lot! It’s inspiring how many talented artists trust us with their creations :). #Namaste
Only brief yoga today – this past week has been hectic and it gets far far worse this coming week. I’ll get through as much of my to-do list as I can, but there are lots of “Urgent!” things on there. I barely got that cover song video finalized and loaded in time! And now Mused is due tonight!! And the Art-Poetry show goes live next Wed! AAaaagh! 🙂 #Namaste
