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. In the evening, we went to our usual Friday dinner restaurant, then I went to the side job for the last time for a while. Writing InContinue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 28”

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 27

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 sheContinue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 27”

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 26

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 aContinue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 26”

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 25

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’tContinue 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 toContinue 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 aContinue 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”

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 21

Friday I had a goal before of making Friday a special day to do things with my daughter, and we did that today. I went over some writing stuff in the morning, then we had a nice lunch and headed off to the library. We had some fun there for a while, then picked upContinue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 21”

Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 20

Thursday As has become the pattern, I awoke mid-morning Thursday, then worked on e-mail and stuff before making my daughter and myself a nice lunch. I got some good work done on Taxi Adventure during the afternoon, then made some tasty dinner, and then it was time for the side job again. When I returned,Continue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 20”

Wednesday Blues After another late night, I awoke mid-morning Wednesday. I worked on e-mail in what was left of the morning, made my daughter and myself a nice lunch, then worked on Taxi Adventure some while she took a nap. All too soon, it was time to go to the side job, and by theContinue reading “Writing In Public: Year 1, Month 1, Day 19”
