The week already feels long

Somewhere around the beginning of June I wondered why I was still receiving the poets.org April Poem-a-Day emails. Not that I’m complaining. I love getting a new poem every day. And today it was revealed: in honour of the poets.org 75th anniversary, this year the website sent SEVENTY-FIVE poems!

My quote-a-day emails, however, from a website whose name momentarily escapes me, have gone missing. Which they do at least once a year. Sometimes reappearing years later.

It’s like when you have a word on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t think what it is. That’s what this email list is like.

In other news, I have a lot on my plate. I feel, frankly, kinda over-committed with the whole fiction-writing gig (note to editors: nobody panic yet, I said I’ll do it & I’m sure I will … somehow). So I’ve installed not one but TWO time trackers: Rescue Time (which I’ve used once before) & Active Timer. Not only will I get to record a kind of double-entry time tracking log, I can see if they actually agree with each other.

Won’t that be interesting?

Well, probably just to me.

Advice on procrastination-fighting techniques will not be lost on me right now.
