Yesterday I worked on the computer for the morning - personal business, editing, and so on. After spending a lot of time on the computer, I crashed on the couch only to be thrown out of the living room - sort of. Ken wanted to rearrange.
This morning, Ken did the grocery shopping and saved over $14 in coupons and over $7 in rebates. It may not seem like a lot but every little bit helps.
Today I worked on publishing crochet patterns. Once I was back on my computer I realized I had more ready to go than I thought. I got four of the five done. The last one is going to take a little more refining before I can publish it.
While I was working on the computer, I updated some of the stuff on my web site as well. In addition to adding these four patterns, I put in new pictures on the home page and changed the background color.
I posted these on Ravelry.com today and already have likes on the site. I'm thrilled by that. Hopefully it will translate into sales.
I was hoping to get more done but my legs are bugging me so shortly I'll be hitting the recliner again. The good thing is I got two sessions on the computer today and lots accomplished.
Tomorrow I'm off work and plan to be a bit mellow about the day. I have a couple tasks I'd like to do but in addition I may take time out to read. It depends on what I get accomplished.
I finished Stargate and Stargate Atlantis. Now I have to look for a new show to watch. Or I may just go back to writing every night. I'll have to see how the mood takes me. I do need to finish three projects fairly soon. I might need a show to watch while I finish those off.
Having said that, I need to get back to marketing - like posting on twitter blurb for my books. I've been thinking about setting up a nightly schedule but I'm so not good at adhering to a schedule.
I can't decide if it would be better to say this night of the week, I'm doing marketing and this night I'm doing editing and so on. Or if it would be better to do a little of each every night. Marketing from 6:30 to 7:30, submissions from 7:30 to 8:00 and writing the rest of the night. I'm not sure either technique will work for me but I need to figure out how to get more of this stuff done.
In the meanwhile, I keep plugging away. These four patterns are proof of it. They are available on Smashwords and Amazon. You can find links on my web site http://eileentroemel.weebly.com/
