Ever so close

Badlands is almost done...whew. Will be posting a link to the finished product in the next week or so.

Writing lots of poems about cougars and AA and high school drop outs. Will post those soon, too. By the way, if you have a terrible story about a teacher or teachers, send it my way.

Quote of the Day

Talk not of wasted affection,
affection never was wasted,
If it enrich not the heart of another,
its waters returning back to their springs,
like the rain shall fill them full of refreshment;
That which the fountain sends forth returns again to the fountain.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

Managing creative ideas

I decided to start a 'random ideas' book to help me stay focused on the tasks at hand. Most of the time, midstream through a project, I will have a sudden burst of inspiration about a new project. Since I love to begin new projects, old goals have a way of being neglected. Just having a book to put my ideas 'on hold' allows me to stay focused on current projects, without losing the new creative idea.

Does anyone else having a system of managing new ideas or projects so that they don't interfere with current ones?

Working for the 'Man'

How many of my readers like their job?
How many of you would say you have meaningful work?
Finally, if you could choose your perfect career, what would it be and why?

Just a friendly, nonacademic poll....
