Also, had two critique group meetings and associated writing, plus I hosted one of the meetings, which I love, but takes time and energy.
Also granddaughter and I are back in the routine of editing, hopefully for the last time, the letter project, which has gone on way, way too long.
For this next week, besides excavating my desk and surrounding areas, I need to produce writing for the Critique group on Tuesday. Also more on the Jabezes series; The next in the series will probably fold in Jabezes from the William Burns McPherson family, of which I believe there are two --- but of course, that too will take a bit of research. Then, a piece on my grandfather,yet another Jabez Burns McPherson,who was a son of James Burns McPherson and a grandson of James Peter McPherson. The last piece of the series with be a short (at least I hope it is short) wrap-up on the Jabezes.
My plan is to then focus on the family of Jabez Burns McPherson, i.e., his wife (my grandmother) and children (my dad, aunts and uncles). Considering that there are 10 children in the family, I figure this little project will take me well into October.
I rather like this format of the Sunday Synopsis --- a conversation between me, myself and I --- and without the hard cast deadlines and to do lists. Accomplishes my intent of a certain amount of "oversight" and "planning" without the whip hand so obvious. Took awhile to get to this point, but the view is nice.
