Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 30

Sunday After a morning trip to services at UUCP, I had the rest of the day to lounge and work on my stuff, both of which I did. Writing I worked through more of the final smoothing for Taxi Adventure, which involved more decisions regarding time of year, use of celebrity names, and so on, … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 30

Saturday I unexpectedly had the opportunity to spend the day with my daughter and my parents, and that's what I did. Writing I didn't turn my attention to Taxi Adventure until late in the evening, when I began to work through the final smoothing that the text needs, and then I got some of that … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 29

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 28

Friday It was another day with my daughter, practicing letters and building a nap tent. While she was napping, I got some focused writing energy into Taxi Adventure.

Thursday I aimed toward getting on a schedule, with daughter time in the late morning. This morning, I took her swimming for 45 minutes. We had a great time, and I was impressed with how fearless she is in the water with no flotation devices. She has had swimming lessons over the summer, and she … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 27

Wednesday This was another day of working with my daughter. I sure do love that little girl, and I feel terribly guilty about working when we could be playing together. Then I feel guilty for not getting as much done as I could, because I know if I could elevate my writing career just a … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 26

Tuesday My daughter was with her grandmother all day, so I had the opportunity to get a lot done, and I ran with it. Time and words flew. In the evening I had to go to a side job, but the bones of the day had a lot of meat on them. Writing I didn't … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 25

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 24

Monday Monday again. I had my daughter with me all day, which I really enjoy. She does consume time I could otherwise spend writing, but someday all too soon she will not be interested in spending time with me, and in the not-too-distant future, she will leave me behind altogether. Right now, I want to … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 24

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 23

Sunday I had the day to myself, which is bad because I miss my ladies when they are gone, but good because I can work without interruption. And it was a good day. I spent part of the day investigating css2xslfo for my print output. Oddly, that did not work, and I quickly reached a … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 23

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 22

Saturday Early in the day, fresh off my discovery of Orgzly, I considered what all this might mean to my work. I was happy with what I found. It isn't perfect, but Org mode, with my current, self-developed, custom Manuscript package, is by far the best option available. It is already perfect for my process, … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 22

Friday I had a goal before of making Friday a special day to do things with my daughter, and we did that today.

We had some fun there for a while, then picked up … Continue reading Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 21
