October 21   Distracted

Posted by


Yesterday, I was help up leaving work and so I missed my usual train. To distract myself while I waited, I could up on a TED talk a work friend had pointed out to me. It was so engaging, that I actually missed my stop and had to get off at Mandurah and get on another train back to my stop. Here it is, it’s important!

Also, for Tansy – it has Wonder Woman in it.

Today I did wedding things. I guess decisions are on track. I dunno.

I’ve got a huge amount of work to get done before heading off for World Fantasy. I wish I had more time to sit down and record what’s going on this year – it feels like this is the busiest and most productive year I’ve had, at least in the last decade, and I feel like I’ve been working through a lot of stagnant points in my life this year. Of course, that then means I have almost no time to sit down and think about it all. Maybe next year, I guess.

    Check your lists, you have probably done a massive amount of work.

    I had to do this yesterday – I felt drained and a little down but hey I had written about 3 blog posts, edited a podcast and finished the first ever short story I will submit for publication(seriously my admiration for authors, even those who write poorly has increased tenfold after the last month).

    As an independent observer I concur you appear to be getting a lot done, and that missing the train tweet was hilarious.

    It is really good to stocktake on done things. I’m at least having high turnover of the to do lists, even if their length doesn’t change, at least the items on them do?

    Yeah that train thing .. so silly. And I had been hoping to get home quickly to do things. Lots like 30 mins in travelling too far and back!

    Thank you for that link. She makes a lot of sense.
