DISPATCHED FROM THE CROSSROADS, AT THE INTERSECTION OF yesterday & tomorrow
Saturday, 3.10.07: Week In Review
This week, as the bitter cold persisted, was about writing.
I should have done more actual creative writing of my own, but did more writing about writing and went a little crazy getting some web pages reformated.
A few moons ago I decided my "mission" was to "write stunning stories." I should add to that: "Share what I know." I have a lot of know-how in my head but no ambition to go into schools to share it. The web is my venue, but — I need to figure out the right formats and avenues for tutorials and guides. I have a good format for Photoshop tutorials and a good place to post them. (I get traffic and, if people click my ads, income.)
But my so-called writing resource pages have been, till now, mostly modified journal entries. People aren't interested in my mental adventures — they want instructions. 1, 2, 3... So there's my challenge.
Also this week:
Dropped tax info off at the accountant.
Had breakfast with Maria and her new teacup chihuahua. Cute cuddly little thing.
Jim finally over his pneumonia and his truck-hit-me course of moxifloxicin.
Put my old Palm T3 up for sale on ebay. I was going to give it away till I realized how much I invested in travel accessories and leather case (which of course don't work with the new model, grrrr...). But I did discover that the wireless keyboard still works, so I played with that for a while.
Got an email from Arun Gandhi that his wife Sunanda passed away. I met her the couple of times I went to his house for interviews. I think we'll go to the memorial service next week.
