Yesterday, we had over 20 C weather in southern Germany, that’s about 70 F. I have translating and writing to do, formatting and editing, and I really need to finish a novel I’m beta reading for a fellow writer. So what did I do?
Had a spontaneous barbeque party in the garden!
We harvested tomatoes, potatoes and pumpkins, and I cut back the tomato plants that were starting to develop blight. But there are still an amazing number that are continuing to produce, even if they don’t taste quite as much like summer as they used to.
The girls chased the cat and rolled down the hill, and a wonderful time was had by all. I think it’s referred to as “filling the well.”
Here’s something else that eats into writing time, but I can’t give it up: *g*
I did get a fair amount of translating done this week, less writing, unfortunately. Although I did do another editing pass on Island of Glass and got it off to another beta reader.
I continue to experiment with Pomodoro and a couple of other productivity techniques. Seems to be helping with my tendency to “fritter” but even so, it still feels like there are never enough hours in a day!
For the rest of the month, I will concentrate on the translation so that I can concentrate more on writing during Nano. If anyone wants to be my buddy, my handle there is Specficrider.
So what did you guys do to fill the well this week? 🙂
