So, I am punting once again. It would be nice to get back to the smooth biweekly schedule I had for a while, but at the same time, I am pleased that I am getting this freelance writing work. I always stress a little when I have to postpone an episode, but I also stress when I try to squeeze my reading into time that just isn’t there.
I‘m going to have to reschedule the next episode of my Vacation in the Golden Age–now set for Monday, November 12. The reason is that I have had a lot more freelance work lately, both fiction and nonfiction. With this work, I’ve found there just isn’t time in the day to read my issues of Astounding. I ordinarily do this reading on my lunch hour, but I have been having to use my lunch hour to work on the freelance work in order to meet my various deadlines. I met two of those deadlines over the weekend, but I have several more coming due before the end of the month.
