So, I'm on track so far for my goal of reading 24 books in 2009 (12 fiction and 12 non-fiction). In April, on the nonfiction side, the good news is that "He's a Stud, She's a Slut, and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know" was such a quick read that I've got like a month and 3 weeks to read "The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals." The bad news is, reading about 50 double standards all in a row is rather depressing, even though Jessica Valenti is funny.
In screenwriting news, I wrote four out of five Tuesday evenings in March, missing my goal for the month by one. On the Tuesday I missed I was pitching webisode concepts to a friend, so I guess that's pretty much the greatest reason ever. :) In April I've got four Tuesdays and my goal is to beat out my adaptation on index cards using the system described in "Save The Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need." I'm tackling a quite challenging adaptation, and moving into the second half I've been feeling a bit lost so I definitely think this will be time well spent.
I got my taxes done and pulling my business expenses together was as much of a nightmare as ever. I've decided that this is the year I get my business expenses organized throughout the year. I'm using a small business American Express card for most of my business expenses, and my goal in April is to download some accounting software and organize my business income and expenses so far this year. I'm totally dreaming of 2009 business taxes that are a breeze...
