I've been crashing recently--okay, maybe not true. I've been cranking on two hours of sleep a night and it finally caught up to me. At a certain point, your stomach starts to hurt and you zone for no reason.
I really hate Excel with a passion, and these financial analysis exercises I've been going through haven't been fun. I dread the thought of learning more Access than I ready know, so it's a good thing I'm about to wrap up the retraining. It can't come soon enough because I'm burnt out on school. Business math was cool and small groups, but the rest of it was like getting a series of botched root canals.
I just ran some ideas past the Small Business Administration, and thank God they brought me down to earth because seriously--I wanted to change the world. I still want to change the world, but slower now. Not so much a tidal wave but a tidal surge.
I have another workshop coming up. Same one. Organic structure. Funny how it all seems clear to me, but I tend to lose people between theory and practice. I've been working on better explanations, so maybe this time it'll be better. I really think I need to do some videos, but my kid convinced me I don't want to do anything until I can work it all through and find the right place. And here I'd been thinking of just setting up a gigantic sticky note easel in my bedroom. I might just co-opt a classroom at school instead. Look all professional and stuff in my jeans and cup o'noodles t-shirt, lol
I do have something on prologue structure for later in the year, mostly because I actually "like" prologues, and have been kicking around the idea of a three step process to refine emotional under structure in a silly-simple way. Funny-strange. I did the original footwork as part of an "answer" and spent the next day thinking of implications.
The JR Ward book arrived on Tuesday. I love Amazon. Right in the middle of "what if..." loan analysis. I've been waiting for Darius' story and it almost killed me to leave it in the box. Her Covet-angel series isn't all that hot, but the Brotherhood is still kicking.
