mad in pursuit notebook


Week in Review, 12 November 2011

I had to muster all my powers of concentration this week, including techniques like Pomodoro to keep my but in the chair for 25 minutes at a time. And my gmail went rogue. But I did take a break for a night out with the girls.

:: Projects

"Tribe of the Breakaway Beads" Project. Finished and uploaded. Now sweating out the technical processing and receiving the proof before we leave on our Thanksgiving roadtrip.


:: Project Planning

Blocks of time ahead:

  • 10 days till we head south for Thanksgiving: road readiness; Ireland trip plan
  • Dec 2 - Dec 20, before Christmas roadtrip: drum and bugle video; family history stuff; party
  • Jan 1 - Jan 28, before Florida snowbird trip: finish Asia collection inventory
  • Mar - Apr, before Ireland trip: bead inventory?


:: Reading

Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg -- listening to Audible version while I do yoga. Inspirational to rev me up for creative writing again AND to use writing as a "spiritual practice."
