My Week In Writing

I’ve had a much calmer week this week. I managed to finish two out of three manuscript reviews with one more to tackle this week. All my other projects are up to date and awaiting client feedback.

It was a much needed calmer week, although it doesn’t mean the lull will last. The next wave will come this week and I’ll have another week or two of prioritising, organising, and typing my butt off.

I ran into some technical difficulty this week during an edit. The more I made suggestions on the google doc the slower and slower my system ran. To the point where I was waiting twenty seconds to load between clicks on the page. My operating system was working smoothly outside of google docs, I think the issue was with the document itself. Google docs obviously has its limitations being an online platform, I think the document I was working in was bloated with my edits and everything done to it beforehand.

I try not to run any editing software in google docs for the same reason, they slow everything down so I run that offline in Word instead and do the old copy and paste if needed.

I found some time for my personal writing this week which was nice, looking over that old manuscript again. I also have a niggling to begin a new project, although I may let that one sit in my subconscious a while longer to stew first.

How was your week in writing this week? Any pitfalls or breakthroughs?

  1. I write before I go to work, as when I was trying to blog and write after work it was causing more stress. It may not be a lot in the morning, about half an hour, but I can write about one thousand words during this time. Being able to touch type helps. It has been a busy week. I went trick and treating with my daughter, and granddaughter. Got caught in the rain. Spent the rest of the week without a voice. I’m feeling a bit better now, but my ears are blocked.


  2. This past week I managed to finally get a blog posted after a particularly eventful month. I e been missing catching up with everyone but it’s been insanely busy!
