Flash Cash and Slow Cash

November 8th, 2011 at 09:07 pm

It's mostly been a day of catching up, but there's been some flash cash and some slow cash coming.

Two textbook publishers contacted me today, one from my current text and one from a competing text. The current text, though it's been out less than a year, is already planning revisions. They wanted feedback from me through a survey in return for $20 from Amazon.

The competing text publisher wanted me to do a survey and an intensive two-chapter review. While I know they're just trying to lure me back to their text, for the $400 they offered, I'll do it. I figure it'll take me about 2-3 hours.

Slow cash coming from a cheaper magazine offer for one of DD's magazines, a couple of good deals at the drugstore, and my goal sheet (not as fun as Paulette's!) that I'll do later this afternoon.

I've been overstretched and tired, but took a nap yesterday after teaching and took it easy last night. Onward!

    It's a slow day indeed when my to-do list is regarded as fun. As a non-voting immigrant, I was Delighted to help an American (not my husband) exercise his right to vote by counseling him on initiatives and calling the County Elections Office to ask how he can get an "emergency ballot." Then a coffeehouse owner was insistent on giving us free drinks, but we refused, so he gave me free cookies. Although no one I know personally outside the campaign has read my published opinion piece, I take comfort knowing that it is the most "liked" article in the past few days.

    I always found it frustrating, as a student, to pay $80+ for a textbook that was already out of date when it was published. Science I can understand, but humanities? "We have to revise this so we can include an essay about how Walt Whitman 'cruised' the woods."
