Work work work

So much to do and so little time to get it done in.

I’ve had the good fortune to get some work done on the Rome story. I’ve read through the entire book, now, and made some edits. Now that I’ve done that, I can finally get back to it and finish it. My friend, Lara, and I are going to have a write-a-thon and finish our books. 🙂 We traded drafts to read for fun (these were our NaNo books) and I gotta say, her teenage characters are great.

After I cooked dinner last night (brats, rice and brown gravy – it was YUM), I sat at the computer the rest of the time. I got a slew of contest entries that had to be logged and entrants notified so I did that first. Then I decided to try and stay ahead of the game and went ahead and attached score sheets to all the entries I already did have. Then, finally, I got to write.

Since I’m President of my local chapter, I thought it would be cool to implement online workshops for everyone. I had no idea how much work would be involved in that. I put out a call for workshop presenters to the other RWA chapter loops and got an overwhelming response. So I’ve printed all the submissions and I’m going to go through them this weekend and start making some decisions about what to present to the group. And THEN I have to contact all these folks, get them scheduled. And that’s only scratching the surface. I have to get the website updated with a registration page (egads!), set up a Yahoo Group for the classroom, and I’m going to have to recruit someone to be a moderator… So much to do!! But, I think it will be worthwhile in the end. I few this as a way to pay for our monthly meeting room (since we have to do that now). I’m worried about the budget. I want to make sure we have enough money for the rest of the year’s events.

I’ve recruited Man to help me figure out this form for the webpage. He, thankfully, said yes. I wonder if I can pay him in chocolate?

I get the kiddo tonight! I’ve been missing him something fierce.

Okay, time for work. And why is the cat sitting and staring at me?

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
