Can you guess what my goal for today is?
I haven’t posted anything here for nearly a week (sorry!) because things have been pretty hectic on the translation front. As I’m sure my fellow freelancers would agree, when there is a lot of work to be done, other little jobs can slip off your to-do list.
However, there is good news! I was delighted to be invited to write an article for one of the professional associations that I belong to (stay tuned for news!), and I have been writing a paragraph here and there when I have been able to find a bit of time, but the deadline is now fast approaching. So today’s the day. I’m buckling down and getting on with it.
In the meantime, I have found a few posts to aid and inspire your own writing:
* 9 Clever Writing Tricks to Supercharge Your Blog Posts from Men with Pens
* Procrastination: Dealing with the thief of time by Sarah Arrow on Sark eMedia
* 6 Proven Tips for Getting into the “Write” Mood at The Renegade Writer
If however, if you’re more in the mood for reading, how about working through the reading lists (here and here) that I put together earlier this year. In addition, fellow translator and friend Chiara Vecchi has recently written a review of Judy and Dagmar Jenner’s book The Entrepreneurial Linguist, which is well worth checking out.
I’ll be back soon, when I’ve finished my article. Wish me luck!
