Thanks to Mrs. T and Izzy for giving me lots of space and quiet to work today. I met the daily 800 word quota I set for myself when I’m working on a novel. Lately, it’s been more like 800 words four days a week.
I followed up my writing by meeting another daily quota: I read seven student papers. At that rate, I’ll have them done in seven days, which would put me a day ahead of schedule. This semester I’ve spaced out my face to face classes’ assignments so they come in at a different time than the writing of the online students.
I spent the whole rest of my day doing color correction to the Girlfriend Weekend “For the Love of Books” documentary. To be truthful, rather than call it color correction, I should probably call it “color improvement.” When I’d do an adjustment, it would take a while for Final Cut Pro to render the change, and while it was “working,” I watched videos from NYU’s “Media Talks.” The more I learn about their master’s degree in publishing the more I’m impressed by it.
I should note that my wife Megan made the little airplane in the picture.
There are some good videos related to the book business on the NYU site here.
