We’ve made it to a week of nonstop promotion! There are a lot more weeks to go. Today, I’m mostly doing queries and correspondence, which is making my old-man hands ache. (There is nothing more unsexy than a guy with poorly functioning hands.)
I grew up Protestant, and in Christian religious groups Sunday is generally noted as a day of rest. I worked straight through the Hebrew Sabbath on Friday and Saturday, and now I’m working through the Christian one too. I think it’s a really good idea, though. The reason I’m not letting myself take a day of rest yet is because I feel I’ve had so many days of half-rest recently. I need to become more diligent and utilize my working time better. There is always more to be done–which is precisely the mindset a day of rest should help one to escape. If I really make my weekdays productive, I might take a break from promoting once a week. I’ll still do my daily update; I just need to make this advance publishing thing work.
I’ll be calling it a day soon, heading to my friend’s house to watch tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones. And poor Peter Dinklage is going to find himself short a nose. And a lot of poor sailors are going to get set on fire. (I’m hoping advance publishing works this time, so this doesn’t spoil anyone’s episode. I’m also hoping this stuff happens this week rather than next week. If not, sorry about the spoilers!)
