Community, Work Notes

December 7 – Community Prompt: Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011? (Author: Cali Harris)

I’m an introvert. It takes me a long time to cultivate connections within a community and maintaining those connections is a lot of work. On my birthday in 2007, I made some goals related to being social. While I may not have completely achieved those goals, the effort I’ve put forth has reaped some result for me. Or manifested results to use Reverb 10 terminology.

I’ve kept active within the VOTS community this year. (Well, active for me. It’s all relative.) I’ve accepted more invitations, hung out more with people. I even set up a team dinner! That seems really pedestrian by normal standards, but it’s something for me.

I’ve also had a Twitter account since April 2007, but I’ve only come to use it in a network-y kind of way this year. I still feel like an interloper among the Twitter communities, but I’m working on that. I’d like to find a good level of participation. I over-do it and then burn out. A more steady level of participation would probably be a good thing.

Read over the galley for "Breakfast in the Garden" this morning.

Giving Divine Fire the 10% trim, though that novel still needs some work.

I need to get back to subbing Model Species too.

Unfortunately, I’ve been really creaky and tired today. Tuesdays have a way of slipping away from me. This one is no different.
