My other half and editor-in-chief pointed out last week whilst reviewing my latest offering that my posts tended to be both a tad negative and overly formal. Upon reflection I think she is right, just don’t tell her.
It is interesting that when writing for different audiences you tend to settle into different voices. And that on collaborative blogs like this the authors tend to take on differing roles. It seems that at the moment my role is to be Eeyore and to post about topics that deal in complaints or on politics. On my other blog I seem to come across as much more friendly.
So this week there shall not be a moan in sight.
Actually this week I was looking at my shelves in the office where the books for cataloguing are placed and I had a pleasant warm fuzzy feeling. About six months ago I had a rather large backlog, and books were spending far too much time on my shelves. They were also spending far too much time on the processing shelves. Now 95% of books spend no more than three days on my shelves, and usually after that no more than seven days on the processing shelves. We have had a real blitz and worked on our processes so now we are pushing through the new books at a great speed.
That is a thing that gives me a great feeling of satisfaction, or in a lame attempt at being not so formal, that’s how we roll! 😆
