Welcome to week twenty-eight.
This week was database updating and birthday celebrations. As suspected, the birthday celebrations had a significant impact on the work achieved!
I finished inputting the data for Trapped and started on Concealed, at which point I found an error (wrong word used!) that I couldn’t ignore and ended up re-uploading new versions to all retailers. I’m about 20% of the way through the text now, so not too bad, but I expect it to take most of this week to finish it. After concealed, I’ll enter the three shorts, 1983, 1941 and 1985, before going onto Secrets and 1901. At that point, I’ll be able to start checking for any inconsistencies in Kindred through the next edit.
Entering the data is one of those jobs that you can’t do for too long at a time because it fries your brain – a bit like doing to much editing in one day. That makes the progress seem slow, although it probably isn’t really. If I’ve finished the whole lot by the end of July, I’ll be doing well. I’m not optimistic about that though.
Aim: To monitor time spent reading over the week.
