Blog by Mail

This is cool.  Seeing as how blogger is restricted at work, I must blog via email.  This is the coolest. AND, as you can see I figured out how to post crappy pictures from my cell phone.  That should prove to be interesting in the future.

It’s Labor Day, and I’m at work. By choice.  Double time and a half is a great incentive to spend the day being non productive. I mean really, how much work can I do, when everyone else is home. Ok, well I was able to help out a couple of people, but that’s about it.  Call back during business hours!

I’ve been typing up some novel notes I’d handwritten on a legal pad.  I was in danger of losing the pages to the ravages of my purse, my car, and general day-to-day wear and tear.

 I go through spells—sometimes I prefer writing longhand, and sometimes I need to compose at the keyboard.  I plan to start working from First Draft in 30 Days as a way of getting, and keeping myself organized.  I’m a packrat, and a paper whore.  Too much of it, and I get overwhelmed.  I’m quick to print off a webpage (to be read later), than taking a few minutes to read it right then. And then these random pages get lost, misfiled, or, when I come across them again, I have no blasted idea of why I printed it off in the first place. Same thing with bookmarks. I can CTRL+D with the best of them, but there is no rhyme or reason on how I save my bookmarks.  I’m turning over a new leaf.  With my new laptop, everything gets its own folder: the year, subject, etc.  I’ve been doing the same with MS Word.  It’s helpful to me in so many ways, I feel so organized! Let’s see how long this lasts.
