Last week’s draw turned out quite accurately. I think five-card spreads for a longer prediction period are going to be more consistently accurate. For the results of my September 2 spread last week, go to the previous post and you’ll see the results I wrote up today about what happened last week.
For this week, I drew Fox-Cavalier-Moon-Key-Ship. Key card is the Moon, which is work for me. So, I’m expecting work to be delivered (since I’m a freelance editor and book indexer, that’s how it goes) for sure this week, which would be nice (Cavalier+Key) for the bottom line. However, with Fox-Cavalier, there may be something wrong with the project that needs correcting before I can start, or Fox may simply indicate that it will be a proofreading job, which is likely, where I will have to find the things that are wrong in the text. Key+Ship indicates that either the project will come from far away (actually that’s almost always the case), or it may be from a foreign author.
I’ll check in next Sunday with the results.
Update on 9/16/12: I did take delivery of two projects, both book indexing and not proofreading. One did involve waiting for a substitute chapter with corrections, and I’m finding that the many, many illustrations (the book is about an ancient Greek-style ship model found in an Egyptian tomb) are not well-placed in relationship to the text, so I have to go more carefully to figure out what index entries the captions belong to. And the subject matter is about something very long ago and far away…:)
