I never realized how sacred weekends can be, until I had to work two weekends in a row. Boy, I feel nearly burned out, if truth be told!
But I'm so glad its Friday today and so much gladder that its a Friday where I can finally put up my feet and just look forward to the weekend, where I promise to do absolutely NOTHING!
I just wrapped up with the latest issue (forthcoming in a couple of weeks) of the Southern Health Magazine and handed it all to my favorite graphics and production guy. Now its his baby and hopefully he wont call me in the weekend and say i'm over the word limit on such and such a page.
Final proofing will happen in about ten days. But I can breathe easy for the next week or so as I set out assigning new stories and writing some of my own for the next-to-next issue.
Do we work w-a-y in advance or what? But right now we're trying to get the magazine out earlier in the month, so schedules are tight as hell and everyone's feeling the pressure.
