THURSDAY: Positive Side Effect

20180707_114000 I’ve had some work this week, and one of the best things about it (besides loot) is that the floor gets swept.

I’m proofreading, and errors can be costly (like thousands of books reprinted), so sharp attention is necessary. There is repetitive detail, making it easy to find yourself on auto-pilot, not really noticing or thinking about what you’re seeing.

One thing I’m doing to keep alert is proofing in 20-minute increments with five-minute breaks in between. I set the timer on my phone and when it’s break time — out to the kitchen I go, re-set the timer and grab the broom.

For the past month I had no files to work on. Please don’t embarrass me by picturing the state of our floors.
