Busy Busy

Been busy this week so far.  If you follow my Twitter (@SEvanTownsend) you probably know.

Monday I had to prepare a speech for Toastmasters that I procrastinated until the last minute.  Speech was well received anyway.

Yesterday (Tuesday) I had two (!) interviews for freelance writing assignments.  That pretty much took up the whole day because I had to drive 40 miles to see the one guy and he was quite loquacious.  Was easy to get 1,000 words out of his story.

And today I was a pillar of the community.  First a meeting at 7:00 A.M. (yes, it bites), then a meeting at 11:30 where I had volunteered to lead the meeting.  When that was done, I needed to write the first drafts of the two stories that I'd done interviews for yesterday.  It's best to do them when the interviews are fresh in the mind.  I would written them yesterday but got back from the second interview at 4:00 and was bushed.  Decided to tackle them today when I was more rested.

One (the loquacious guy) is a bit long and the other is a bit short.  Oh, well, it averages out.  I'll let them fester overnight and re-read and proof/edit in the morning.  After I go to Starbucks.

How's your week so far?
