All of a sudden I am back dwarfed by the tasks at hand. Unexpectedly a major funder asked for a concept paper on a new project, a very-very large project, like five times the size of the one I am currently responsible for. I was starting into a busy cycle with a relatively full calendar, and now I have two weeks to write a 50 page proposal for a potentially $5,000,000 project. Wow! I got started today, finished a rough outline and the first couple of pages of text. Parts of it will go together easily, an hour here and an hour there and I will get through it. I have a couple of 5 hour flights soon, I can get 20 pages written on those flights.
