Leap Day!

I worked most of the weekend, catching up on freelance projects that should have been done last week, so I felt no guilt in taking today mostly to putter around at this and that.

Things I did:

  • Wrote 123 words on Treachery (first words in a while)
  • Chatted with other writers online
  • Read more of the current book
  • Tackled sending my first e-mail with MailChimp (I’ve been using Mailman)

"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude." FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE
Still on tap for the evening:

  • Dinner
  • Drawing with my daughter
  • More reading
  • Maybe even some thoughts on story structure

So mostly today, I’m thankful for a nice quiet day. What are you grateful for?

  1. Sounds like a great day. Thankful on part for Ellie of Arizona Humanities who is working to put on a Poetry Slam as a pre-event for the Payson Book Festival.

  2. Sounds like a good day. Isn’t MailChimp strictly for email marketing?

    • Thanks, Chris!

      No, a large number of authors use MailChimp to send regular newsletters. It’s free to use up to 2,000 subscribers, and presumably, by the time I cross that barrier, I’ll be making enough money from my writing to be content to pay for their service.
