“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou
That quote has nothing at all to do with this entry – in fact, nothing has anything at all to do with this entry, except maybe unicorns – but I like sharing quotes. So there you go.
It’s after 4PM here in lovely Lyon and I am trying to get through my to-do list. This thing here that I’m doing now (some might call it ‘writing a blog post’ while others will think of it more as ‘rambling incoherently in public’) is item #2 (of 7) on my list. So, I’m off to a good start.
I find that I tend to do things in reverse order of importance, which is the opposite of what productivity books advice you to do. I still haven’t finished reading David Allen’s Getting Things Done … but it’s totally on my to-do list.
I think I’ve gotten something like 6 hours of sleep total the past couple of days, so I’m functioning purely on sugar and caffeine. I think this has led to an unintentional exercise in subjective objectivity.
Other stuff on my to-do list includes finishing the Rayne scene I’ve been working on. I am committed to sharing what I have so far with my beta group on Friday. And what I have so far is a barely coherent scene, a scene involving a butterfly-mouse, and another scene where I’m fairly certain I forgot the meaning of characterization. It’s going well. I find, though, that I work better with deadlines. So, we’ll see what I have come Friday.
In other news…
AfterEllen has asked me to write a monthly column covering the lesbisexual world of Spanish-language TV shows, movies, people etc. And I still don’t have a name for this column so I welcome suggestions, preferably by Friday. Gracias!
Speaking of which, if anyone knows of any shows in Spanish with lesbisexual content (besides Las Aparicio, Capadocia, Amar En Tiempos Revueltos, Para Vestir Santos, Hospital Central) currently airing or about to air somewhere in the world, please let me know, either by email or blog comment. I will love you forever in a platonic but fervent sort of way. continue reading…
