Batting a Thousand...

Yeah, even though it was on my list of things to do yesterday...I forgot again. I got sidetracked by creating a lesson plan. Heh...

We had a guy come talk about Scrivener at my last writers group meeting. It was disappointing for me as I was up to speed on all the things he shared, except one. And at the moment, I have no use for that new tidbit. Unfortunately several members couldn't make it and Scrivener is a very complicated application. I'm not sure the things the speaker taught nor the way he explained them were helpful to anyone just trying to get started.

So I offered to teach one to anyone in my group who was interested.

Which meant I had to decide what to cover generally and then go into specifics in my lesson plan.

So, yeah, that's what I spent several hours on yesterday. And I'm not done. At this point, I'm not sure how long the class is going to last. Yikes. I'm shooting for a couple of hours. Yeah, forty-five minutes to an hour (our usual speaker time frame) wasn't going to be enough, though he did well staying within his time-budget.

And I had an epiphany...I might could do it online. WOO! Our business utilizes remote software and there's a meeting function. One of my techs is going to help me play with that a little today. Online would be soooo much better for everyone I think. No travel across the metroplex!

Okay, so this has got me a little excited cuz I could offer this for money if it works out!!

Well, time to get to other things.

Have a happy hump day. See you Friday.

And just for something pretty to look at, how about Captain Canada, Sidney Crosby. Team Canada kicked Team USA's butts last night in the World Cup of Hockey, so enjoy...
