Last Day of Full Moon
Sunny and warm
Who knew being unemployed/partially employed could be so busy?
Hey, anyone who does 8 shows/week.
The confidentiality agreement prevents me from talking about the theatre job, but all is good, and it’s only until September 3 anyway.
The writing is going well – I had some additional changes to make on the book, and my new agent is sending it out.
I’m deep at work on scripts, and, especially, INITIATE, which burns my soul lately. I love these characters so much, I can’t stand to be separated from them.
Three new stories/sets of characters are burning within, too. I hope they are for novellas, not novels, or I’m in trouble!
And, of course, dealing with the intricacies of trying to get the unemployment benefits I earned, but they don’t want to pay. Because, hey, all they want to do is have people jump through hoops and take jobs in anything to get them off the rolls, not actually help people find jobs to better their lives.
I resigned from the Board of the National Marine Life Center, which broke my heart, but was necessary. I can’t give them what they need right now, not without sending myself over the edge. They asked me to move to the Advisory Board, and I’ve agreed to that.
We went to the Glasgow Lowlands Scottish Festival in central MA last Saturday. It was so much fun! Everyone was delightful, and we had a wonderful time, in spite of the heat. I was able to help a young man with his kilt emergency, thanks to still carrying safety pins. Of course, help one guy with his kilt, and suddenly they all want a hand! But it was all in good fun. Caber toss always cracks me up. I got some great ideas I can incorporate to stories, though. It was a delightful day.
It was hard to get back over the bridge, but we managed.
I get to see an old friend today – we were tight in NY, and I haven’t seen her for at least 10 years She’s down for a few days doing a reading, and I can’t wait to see her.
If I don’t get back on wordpress tomorrow, have a great weekend! I am, of course, in shows.
