Freelancing Report, Day Six

More old F&SF during breakfast. I'm really enjoying these '50s ones.

9:00-11:00am: In Memory Of. Half an hour of internet research in there--trying to figure out the experiential details of having someone toss a homemade explosive in your basement. Nothing much of use. (Lots of recipes, sure, but I want to know things like what colour the smoke would be and how the air would smell afterward.) Ah, well. 1,030 new words, 33,047 total.

11:00-1:00pm: Working on new website. Found the menu bar I misplaced yesterday, which made it much easier.

1:00-2:00pm: Internet/lunch/reading break.

2:00-3:00pm: A little more website work, a little sit down to try to get started on the short story. Hard to focus when I know I have to leave soon. Only got a paragraph or so.

3:00-8:00pm: Planning website in notebook on bus to "real" job, work, reading F&SF on way home, groceries, more reading.

8:00pm-way too late: Dinner, dishes, lots more website work. Almost done; it'll be up tomorrow afternoon, I'm sure. Should have gone to bed a couple of hours ago, though. Never can sleep in properly. Bad me.

Aims for tomorrow: At least 1,000 words on IMO, finish and upload website, customize LJ to fit.
