DISPATCHED FROM THE CROSSROADS

Week in Review

My first full week back from vacation and my mind is still jumping from project to project, without finding much focus. Well, I've been here before, so I know I just need to play it out.

Writing. Continuing my revision of The Underground Athletic Club, now referred to as UAX. It is a very enjoyable process to reimagine the same plot set in a different future. I settle into it, then flit away.

Social networking. I'm getting involved with a group of (mostly) women "creative entrepreneurs" seeking their "global niche." Between their discussions and arguing politics on Facebook I can lose hours of time. Then I find myself over on Huffington Post, making comments there and wondering how many comments I have to make to get a contributor badge. Is this positive?

Blogging. Meanwhile the Mad In Pursuit blog has devolved into a mishmash of odds and ends, without an audience in mind. I really have to decide what to do with it. It's a good place for short writing, which can be either pure practice or the "compost heap" for something else in the future. I need to get some discipline and plan out some topics in advance.

Routine. Got the month of March going with bill-paying, refilling the refrigerator with food, getting back to gym workouts. Trying to keep up my morning walks, but my walking boots are scrunching my bunion.

Entertainment. Caught up with Season 1 of "Game of Thrones" on HBO... something different.
