I’m all “Look at the shiny thing!”

I’ve been having a lot of trouble lately focusing on my projects.  Two Peninsulas fell off of its update schedule, because I need to go somewhere and take notes and take pictures and do a write up and. . . blah blah blah.  I have a bunch of photography that needs to be printed out and put up for sale, but I have no printer.  I have a blanket that is 1/4 crocheted, and I just set up a new computer to do transcription work for Dr. Mom and Moll.

The photography thing is what I have my hopes pinned on right now.  I had two pics printed out to 8×10 size and gave one to J-bird and one to Mom.  Mom was really impressed with the stuff I showed her, she really wanted me to sell it.  I want to as well, but I need to have a printer.  It’s not really cost-effective to have them printed out commercially.  I’m thinking after I do a few reports for Dr. Mom and Moll I will use that money to buy a printer.

The transcription thing is kind of an “on trial” basis right now.  I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m not sure how much I’ll like it or how good I’ll be.  I’m supposed to do one report for each of them, to see if it’s something I’d be willing to do.  I have a computer set up just for that, and now I think I’m just waiting on the blank reports and voice files to come through.

It sounds like I should be keeping very busy, but that’s where the distracted part comes in.  I feel like I’ve been jumping around a lot lately, and I need to just work out a plan to focus on one thing at a time.  I might have to shelve Two Peninsulas for awhile until I get my mojo back.

One response so far
