Getting My Groove Back

So the publisher liked the synopsis ( with a critique, of course) and I'm to submit the first chapter and a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the novel. Faster than Speedy Gonzales, hey? I like this publisher! That, of course, boosted my spirits no end.

I'm also finding my groove in terms of work-related projects. Had a record number of comments on multiple concurrent partnerships and alcohol yesterday, and comments from Kwanda viewers also continue to come in.

I've also managed to automate part of my publishing process. It used to be I had to pick up links from the articles I publish on blogs to some of the social networks I use like Facebook Twitter, Plaxo and Stumble Upon. What i didn't realise was that these platforms have tools to link to each other and automatically push content from one platform to another.

So now all I have to do is publish a post on a blog ( say a Kwanda post), and it will automatically publish a synopsis on the Yahoo profile and Kwanda Facebook page, which pushes the synposis on my Plaxo and a one-liner with link on my Twitter profile. Plaxo also republishes on Stumble Upon.

And the best part is that I'm not using any additional tool to get this done - these platforms do it using the persmissions I give them. I'm actually tired of having to adopt one more tool that's supposed to make my life better, but actually adds to the balls I need to keep in the air.

Lastly, if you have a minute, check out this quiz, where I ask people to think about the influence that they have on their children.

The aim of the quiz is to help parents think about how their gender and sexual attitudes and actions affect their children. A lot of the time we think our sex lives are not our children's business, but they watch, they learn and they emulate.

I am so in awe of how you set about writing a book just like that! I think writing a book would be like a dream come true for me, and you are busy doing it. Really impressive!
