Days away from THIN AIR 2007!!
Well, it's almost here.
My first THIN AIR literary festival as the General Manager with the Winnipeg International Writers Festival.
Everything looks good, and of course there are the bumps to deal with. Ads not appearing when we've put them in...people and corporations taking advantage of our writers now that we have them here and NOT giving us credit for it (by CONTRACT all the THIN AIR visiting and local writers belong to THIN AIR and we have a say in what they can or can't do, and everything is still under our umbrella).
Wow. I'm getting so "corporate." Heh.
Okay, but in any case, it's been a long, slow, slog in some cases, with lots of long hours, many weekends, and some evenings to get this far. I can't even remember my damn financial courses I took waaaaay back in Jan-March of this year. Sheesh (I'll have to review my notes again...and to think I got 100% in the course. You'd think I'd retain SOME of that knowledge).
After this (not that I want it to be over so fast) I feel in my heart of hearts that I'll be able to control the workload a bit better. Take some days off, take some shorter days. AND DO SOME WRITING!!!
The goal is to have the 3rd draft of my one manuscript done by mid-November so that Anita Daher can read it for me!! Yay! Very exciting.
I plan on doing craploads of writing, Gaming, and Game Creation!! (which includes creating new games, working on older games I've already created, and playtesting them with friends and family! Some of these games have been sitting untested for about two years!! SAD! A CRIME!).
Okay, enough talk. Back to work (ugh).
At least I love my job ;-)
