Extremely busy (much busier than usual in August) Aug 3, 2020

I’m translating a big document (27,877 words) scheduled to be delivered next week and I couldn’t meet my daily quota on Friday because of an editing job, so I’ll have to catch up today…

I'm not sure yet Aug 3, 2020

As I have clients in the US who send me continuous, regular work in the evening, I will only see the emails tomorrow morning and I'll reply to them tomorrow morning. It is a successful working relationship but if something crops up, I cc other PMs who are in other parts of the world and someone will be available to answer me though the work I'm sent is hardly ever (or never) urgent. Good working relationship all round.

Planning ahead Aug 3, 2020

Currently, I am not busy.

July has kept me distracted from work (had to move places), but I am finally back and ready to focus on my business.

I was really happy to find some work in my inbox even though I could not focus on actively searching during the last few weeks. Even though it was nothing big, I treasure every mail like this, knowing every big business had to start out somewhere.

I make sure not to despair over the fact that I am not busy.

If I plan ahead and use this time of not being busy wisely, I will be.

Normal compared to what? Aug 3, 2020

Compared with recent months, I am extremely busy but compared with last year, it's a normal day. Let's say I'm fully booked for a few days.

Other Aug 3, 2020

Work-wise, today is less hectic than usual. I have a couple of non-urgent revisiones pending and ongoing online translations, but unlike last month, nothing "urgent" or with pressing deadlines, so I can take things easier than usual. In fact, if I decide not to to any more work at all today, or go to the beach tomorrow, It wouldn't be a problem.

A bit slow Aug 3, 2020

It has been slow lately with the holiday and today is a long weekend in most of Canada. Since COVID, some of my regular clients have all but stopped contacting me.
The past couple of days I've been revising a translation of a website's legal agreement and a mining agreement in Africa.

Extremely busy Aug 3, 2020

I've accepted a 10,485-word job with a shorter deadline than I would like, but the rate is high enough to make the effort worth it.

Busy Aug 4, 2020

No time to go out and catch Covid. I'll catch a sore throat because of the A/C instead. Can't work when 29°C is exceeded in my office.
