Christmas – a busy time

December 24th, 2009

Well, Christmas is almost upon us and one member of the Legg household is busy.

I am just coming up on deadline for my book, Folklore of Hampshire, which will be published by The History Press in July 2010.  I am finishing the book, making sure that all is well and the photographs, several of which I have taken myself, are complete.  It has to be with the publisher by 5th January.

Some of you may know that I edit The Woman Writer magazine for the Society of Woman Writers and Journalists.  This publication will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2010 and the January edition copy deadline was 7th December.  I have to have the copy laid out and with the Sub-Editor by 28th December.  I had 126 emails by deadline, mostly with submissions or information towards articles I intend to write for the edition.  It will take me about a week to lay it out and get it ready for proofing.

In the meantime, the editor of a magazine called today and asked for an article to go into her April edition.  I have been working on it off and on for a little while, with no deadline.  I was going to go back to retake the photographs of the interviewee’s garden in the spring, when the garden was looking better than the storm battered wreck it was in September when I last saw her.  Now I will restructure the article around what I can salvage of the photographs and re-write with a change of emphasis.  I have time, two days.

Finally, I need to find a new permanent home for the Writing Buddies, who are homeless now Borders are shutting.  No peace for the wicked!

Merry Christmas everyone.  Happy Writing!
