I only thought I was busy....

I have started a new job. One that actually pays something every month. I haven't had a regular job in quite a few years, so the change is a bit odd. But, on the other hand, it is a work-at-home editing job, so much of it is the same as what I normally do anyway. The main part of the job is to put together and edit one of the weekly newsletters from Daz Studio ( I'm doing the Platinum Club newsletter. It's not difficult, really, but learning the template and how their automated redirects and such work is taking some time.

I started a couple days ago. I have the first newsletter very nearly done. I'm only waiting on two last bits, and then I can create all the links I need to paste in... and then it goes to others to see. I'll do final editing and then I'll be ready for the next one. I have some other work besides, that includes a bit more editing, and working on the forum. However, most of my attention is on the newsletter right now.

And that's why there is no snippet this week. There's hardly even any writing, to be honest. Although this is a very small newsletter, and doesn't have much writing in it at all, it's been quite a bit of work to learn how to put it together.

Oh, and yes, I have The Book. It arrived in the mail this afternoon. I'm reading it in bits and pieces, and I hope, even with everything else, to have it done no latter than tomorrow afternoon. I'm about a third of the way through. The one thing I'll say is that the Harry Potter books, no matter how long they are, always read quickly.

All-in-all, I'm in a good mood. The idea of having a steady income again is very nice. Since Russ and I both work freelance, there is rarely a time when we can really count on a set amount of money. This one will help keep us going.

So, I am happy and grateful for the work!

Sounds like once you figure out how to put the newsletter together, you'll have more time to write. Missed the Friday Snippet, but congrats on the job! I hope you get to write this week and have fun reading HP!
