Productivity planning at sea…

Now I have something like 6 days at sea. That means plenty of time for reading, writing, eating, swimming, juggling and whatever else I can find to do.

Reading:

  • The Accidental Time Machine – Joe Haldeman. I just found this in the library, and it looks quite fun.
  • Crystal Rain – Tobias S Buckell. I bought this at JFK.
  • The Final Circle of Paradise – Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. It’s sitting there on my iPod Touch, but is getting weirder. I have to read it in short chunks.

    Writing:

  • Finish continuity edit on the novella Monster Story. This should take me two or three days.
  • Look up notes and previous attempts at my next novel project. I’m going to give this project the code name “Human Danger”.
  • I wrote one novel in November and a novella in February (and a bit of march), which means, on a one month on, two month off (not off so much as “editing and catching up on reading”)… May is another writing marathon month! On May first I’ll begin my third (maybe forth) attempt at writing Human Danger.

    Juggling:

  • Generally keep practicing.
  • Get a good video of my ring routine.

    Eating and swimming and “whatever else I can find to do” doesn’t need much planning.
