I'm sorry this blog was is so late! I have no excuse except that I had a day-long staff in-service at the day job that threw my whole schedule out of whack.
I did learn a lot, though! Like, when working with an irate, potentially violent customer, it's a good idea to stand with your body at an angle to appear smaller and less threatening. Oh, and then I learned that the Dewey Decimal number for cats is 636.8 and that the D in "D-day" is actually an abbreviation for the word "Day." I didn't have a clue about that one!
Over the past couple of weeks, I've also been learning about my writing limits. I have discovered that there aren't any other than the ones I create for myself. If you ever have a chance to take a Fast Draft class with Candace Haven, I highly recommend you take it. The pace is grueling, but I have never been this productive. Not even during NaNoWriMo. If I don't have an entire rough draft done by Halloween, I won't be very shy of one.
So tell me - what have you been learning lately?
In the meantime, I'm sneaking off for some butt-in-chair, hands-on-keyboard time.
