Here I go again...threading.
At this point I'm 2/3s of the way through the current warp, and I should finish threading this afternoon. I would *like* to sley as well, but we'll see how many spoons I have left when I'm done the threading.
I've started printing the draft in a larger size. I had been printing out drafts of this size over 3 pages, had to change to 5 last year and with the previous draft went to 6. What can I say? Needs must. I can see what I'm doing much more easily and frankly, I could take paper from my 'waste' box and print on the back side of other papers I've tossed. Like the various iterations of the ms which are just 'scrap' now and could be used again for this job.
My editor is working on the ms again today. It's slowly taking shape, but she is making steady progress and I remain hopeful it will be done before we leave for Vancouver. I'm also hoping to get the warp going into the loom today woven before we leave. This trip is a bit longer because we are rolling a couple other things into the same journey and therefore there will be several evenings in the hotel room for me to hem. I don't seem to be able to force myself to do much of that in the evenings. I really ought to delete a couple of my game apps. I'm getting close to ditching a couple.
I have a couple other things that really need dealing with on my desk and the clock is ticking. But today I'm tired and out of sorts and somehow focusing on just one thing at a time is making more sense to me than flitting back and forth between projects.
The thing is, I remember multi-tasking. I used to do it and do it very well indeed. Now? I just can't. So I have to remain focused on what is necessary. Tomorrow I will deal with one of the things that has been hanging over me, after considering and rejecting a number of 'fixes'. I'm going to go with the simplest solution because the deadline for having it done is too close for me to do anything but the simplest solution. Part of me is fighting that decision because in part it's a bit of a cop out - except I'm no longer in my 30s (or 40s, or even 50s) and just don't have the spoons. I'm feeling 'bad' because I'm going to disappoint some folk, but I also know that the sooner you disappoint them, the sooner they can move on and make other decisions.
In the meantime I'm keeping an eye on my inbox in case of further queries from my editor. So far she seems to be managing.
When it comes down to it, that's about all any of us can do - keep moving forward, even if it is only a step. Onwards...
