I must admit I haven’t gotten much of anything done- with my internet down I only have access at work so not only is my time limited but my work computer is so old that it crashes when going on facebook and such, and of course all of my links are on my laptop.
I only write 2 days this week. A kind friend read my book and pointed out some mistakes, which I expected mistakes, but there are more then I’m comfortable with so I’m re-reading it out loud and giving it another edit. I will admit to a significant amount of pouting – which lost me a day of work. But while I am fixing it the percentage of mistakes per words count is low enough that I still get a solid A. LOL!
I did work on my class, and only have one more lesson to go- plus I found a class that teaches how to teach an online class, which I might take.
My voodoo class started, so far I’m not overly impressed, but I’m hoping it will improve.
So for next week, my goal is to read, edit, and send my book to the formatter. And to remind myself that perfection isn’t the goal, but improvement always is.
How did everyone else do???
Take heart – it’s actually good that someone pointed out errors. You know they’re there, it just takes another pair of eyes (or more) to find them. Yay for editing!
I was upset but now I’m feeling more mellow about it- next book I’ll just run it past another person someone who hasn’t read any of it yet.
“Perfection isn’t the goal, improvement always is.” Wonderfully said.
Out of curiosity – what is the online class on teaching online classes? Might be interested in that one myself, if you care to share. The voodoo class sounds, um, interesting too. *smile*
I hope you are able to get your internet working soon. It can be a real drag not having that functionality, especially when most of us rely so heavily on it these days. All the best for polishing your project. Take care and see you in Round Two, Alica 🙂
Thanks Gene! And don’t worry the voodoo lass is only for the book :)LOL! The teaching class is
here It sounds like it could be fun.
Sent another email about the internet- it’s working right now so I’m frantically trying to get caught up!
Oh I feel for you so much! I hate when our technology’s failures cut into work productivity. I hope you have a better week. It’s always a great idea to read the work aloud. Best wishes with the edits, Alica!
Thanks Julie hopefully it will go smoothly- internet still acting up grrr
