Day of Meetings and Planning and Meetings and Planning…
Yeah, one of those days. Actually great fun. Not only were we planning for the coming year and beyond at WMG Publishing, but I was doing some planning on a new, short-term challenge I’m going to try starting on Sunday.
So stay tuned. It will be just over a week long and is one of the crazier things I have tried to do. At least crazy for me.
And I did three sessions of just over 3,000 words. Last session was short. Got tired.
What I Learned Today (Streak Day 4)
Learned a bunch of stuff today about podcasts. How they make money and so on. I’ll pass more of that along as some of it actually sinks in.
I also learned that with deep cold (at least for here) I don’t do well with exercise. I used to be a snow skier and cold never bothered me. I have become a wimp, sad to say.
I also did a bunch of research and learned a bit about places to get slipcases made. Took me some research but I found a few places. We shall see what their prices are and if the tests come back good, I’ll post results here.
