Blue streak

So, having spent much of the last four days either

  1. asleep or,
  2. at work

I have a ton of tasks to catch up on.

That streak down there in the photo, that's me. And my typing fingers. It's certainly one way to keep warm, this reviewing lark. Bluesnap on Pixabay, CC0, public domain image

Last night my Italian historian contact challenged me to write an 800-word post for him, on the Longobard tribe which gave their name to Lombardy in Northern Italy. Today I have a cheeky little piece on an adult novel and a couple of other pieces to craft. Looking forward to the fantasy one, as I used to edit erotic fiction for a small publishing house here in the UK. Deadlines all over the shop, as ever, too.

Other than that, lots of other reviews backed up, a load of things to read here and some intelligent thoughts to be had on corporate events and team building for a couple of future guest posts. Never stops around here...

And the minute I let my eyes close, I'll be out like a light again. This is not fun. Can I be well again already? Sleeping when I'm supposed to and or otherwise?

creative energy can be as exhausting as physical labour sometimes

Yes, I have multiple tasks looming also. I get up early, teach all day, go home, cook supper (my family insists on eating every day), write, and hit the sack. I'm so looking forward to retirement. How did you get the 800-word blog gig?

Battling the lurgy is pretty exhausting too...

This one was a contact who has asked me in the past to help out with words for his blog. I'm a Classicist. He's an Italian historian. Our paths do cross. Freelance sites are good for that kind of thing too: fiverr is a classic (400 words for $5 in x number of days). One of those a day is $150 a month.

Bless your heart. It will get better soon. Hang in there.

Next major work audit deadline at the end of April, so it's not going to get better before then, regrettably. But at least the writing is a safety valve.
