hugely productive, tired



So over the last week or two I've...

Gone through the final edit/review stages of eleven (11) online documents for the upcoming Windows Server 2003 Technical Reference, written half of two other docs (completing them), revised them both per edits, and more-or-less wrote another one.

Oh, and some encouraging news in this arena: I just learned that I got the following Society for Technical Communication (STC) awards for contributions to the following projects:

Award of Merit, "Implementing Common Desktop Management Scenarios" (writer), User Support Tools competition.

Award of Merit, Windows Server 2003 Online Help (contributing writer), Online Communications competition.

Award of Excellence, Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit (contributing writer), Software Guides competition.

That's the tech-writing part of my life. The teaching:

Updated the class website and syllabus, wrote all the students re: what they'll need before class starts (tomorrow), wrote my "yearly faculty self-evaluation," pitched the Technical Communications Certificate program before the Dean and all, revised the proposal for said Certificate, and other stuff I can't recall.

And I shoveled the sidewalks along our half of the block today.

Sometimes I feel like I'm not getting enough done, but that looks pretty productive, don'tcha think?

Best,
Chris
