Busy with work and writing-related tasks, I had to cut down on the amount of the Wordwitch pictures I draw, so the blog compilations might permanently turn to bimonthly or quarterly ones. Nevertheless, I hope you’ll enjoy another batch of pictures.
Best Laid Plans
I had all the things planned, including catching up with some of the things that were waiting for months, but it seems that February had other plans, and even the Procrastigoblin couldn’t come up with such twists.
Do you have a similar problem?
My mom tries to have a positive approach to taxes: if you’re paying them, it means you had some income.
But the worst side of taxes is the endless labyrinth of forms to be read and filled. It might be easy enough with a day job, but freelancing means a lot more of them. And while US forms are somewhat easy to fill and follow, the “fun” starts with some international ones…
And sometimes going through all of them (including digging out information from years ago that suddenly is relevant) feels like this.
Have you done your taxes yet? Is it easy enough or do you hate it every year?
Sometimes we don’t know if we can overcome an obstacle until we actually try.
That week I battled the CSS monster as I worked on the new look for my website. There’s some work left to be done (especially on the mobile version), but I still celebrate my success: I don’t have any working knowledge of PHP, and my HTML knowledge is at best outdated, so being able to tackle a complex cascading style sheet was a challenge.
The one I thought I wasn’t up to, but I tried anyway, and can now be happy with the result.
Writer’s life isn’t all about writing. If you follow me on social media or read my blog posts, you might know that last year I grew pansies from seeds.
I’m not a gardener, but I really enjoyed having a pot full of colors on my balcony, so this year I started another batch.
Since I’m not exactly following the guidelines of keeping them indoors for a while, fingers crossed they’ll actually grow despite cooler weather!
