I have a group of friends who I keep up with on-line, and one of the things we do is track (albeit loosely) our writing productivity, usually in terms of total words written. I had an interesting writing day yesterday, and though I have no idea what the word total was, I thought I'd share the overall scope of what I worked on.
-- Wrote a blurb for a friend's book
-- Finished answering one set of questions that had been emailed to me for an interview
-- Started answering another set of questions for an interview
-- Traded several emails with Gavin Grant about IGMS stories for his half of the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror (fantasy)
-- Traded several emails with Ellen Datlow about her half of the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror (horror)
-- Traded several emails with Peter Beagle's agent about a story Peter is writing for IGMS
-- Started my Letter From The Editor for the next issue of IGMS (which will be out in about ten days)
There's no fiction-writing on that list, but I still did a lot of typing. It was kind of cool...
The first thing on today's to-do list? Voting. Check. Did that already. How about you?
