Day Life Milestones Reached March 19, 2012

Posted by Tom Wells in Tom's Posts.

I have been on some crazy deadline roller coasters with my day job lately.  I am happy to report that I can see the surface as I have risen from the dark depths of 14 hour work days and weekends with nearly zero downtime.  One of my projects has been cleared to bid and another is finally ready to go sit in the bin at the Division of the State Architect. The latter is a school project that I have loved working on but look forward to letting it set until its fresh.  In the mean time, I plan to give my wife and children some of the attention they’ve missed and I hope to wrap up my next WOTF submission (yes in that order).  Unfortunately, success in passing deadlines inevitably leads to more deadlines.  Recent staff changes means that I finally inherit another project that has lingered miserably for the past year under others.  I hope that my drafting team which is starting to hit a production rhythm can help put the trouble child project back in line efficiently and without taking too much of my off-hours time away.

Writing wise, I hope to start finding some imagination time again.  I have a novel nearly finished, two very good short stories to complete and I have fallen behind submitting other stories to the markets.  But first, I must start simple.  Flash cards for my son.
