And then when those are done, I can chose between sleeping or getting back to work. And some days, I literally collapse in front of my computer mid-typing if I chose not to sleep.
And then I fall asleep.
Ugh, this is the one that has been really bothering me. Editors still haven't looked at my previous proposal, it's literally sat there for weeks now. If it's any consolation, there are about a dozen other proposals also gathering dust alongside mine. I guess I'll get notified or something when someone finally looks at it.
However I haven't really had time to research or write up anything else. I had a half coherent jumble of ideas that could be refined into another proposal if I have enough time. But until then, I won't be able to send anything to the editors to look at.
I was hoping to get 5000 words written for this project during Reading Week. Unfortunately I only got half that amount done. The chances of making it to phase 3 within half of March is becoming less and less likely, and I probably won't be able to get to that stage until the end of April.
In more positive news, I'm finally starting to see additional signs of being able to get to phase 3. It took 30k words, and if my calculations are correct, 20k more will be enough to move things forward.
Permanent hiatus until Project Derp enters phase 3. I'm not spending enough money to fully utilize what I've learned.
The person I was originally doing this with dropped out recently. It was unfortunate but understandable. Luckily he managed to switch me over to a friend of his and now I'm working with her. An added benefit with working with her is that I am making significantly higher profits.
It's funny that this is called Project Cold because it has been cold outside. Running around and talking to people for hours at a time has not been pleasant. Though, this has been the most exercise I've gotten in years.
It goes, I'm way behind on schedule for this one simply because some days I can't dedicate an hour a day to it. I'm hoping to just take a day off and work on it and try and catch up but that has yet to be seen.
In the meantime, it'll just keep piling up
That's it for now. I need to work on all of the above this week because midterms start up again next week. :(
