OK, so today has gone: get the kids up and out, walk them to school, walk back; write a little (and I mean a little) on the novel; get some great ideas for magazine articles, thrash them out, write them out, research markets. Pick up one kid from school, go to the library, do some more research into markets in the magazine section of the children’s department while kid plays on educational computer games, come home, have lunch. Continue research while being screamed at by sleepy kid, and get two of the ideas emailed off as queries to magazine articles.
That took a lot of time. I have four more ideas (or so) that I’d like to get out soon.
Watch this space for tomorrow’s rejection emails ;) Ah, the beauty of the Internet.
