Thurs. July 21, 2016: So Much To Do!

Thursday, July 21, 2016
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.

Fri. July 15, 2016: Writing, Eye-Rolling, and Upcoming Adventure

Friday, July 15, 2016
Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Sunny and hot!

Yesterday was kind of a mixed day. It was a relief from the suckage that was Wednesday, and I got in some good writing on INITIATE. I got some errands done.

At 1 PM, I went to the seminar that’s required of everyone who files for unemployment and is looking for work. It was a waste of time and an insult to my intelligence. I sure as heck wouldn’t hire any of the people in the room with me. I haven’t heard that much ignorant blather in one room in a long time.

But I got all the paperwork I need to keep current, and I’m going to do it. I learned one important thing about “salary range” boxes that I can use, but the rest – none of these people do what I do, and few of the sites had any relevance to me.

Came home and wrote more. Wasn’t in the mood to watch anything.

I’m writing today and running some errands. Tonight, I start the theatre job (under a confidentiality agreement, not much to say, sorry). Since it’s part time/seasonal, I have the blessings of the UA office to do it – even though it’s not considered a “real job” around here. I just have to fill out all the weekly paperwork honestly, which I will.

Tomorrow I have an adventure – I’ll share as soon as I am able! I’m looking forward to a good writing weekend – I just hope it won’t be too hot.

Sunday is my dark day at the theatre. This should be fun!

I love the way the characters are growing and maturing in INITIATE. I’m very pleased with this project. There are other things I need to do, too, and get out the door next week, but I’m passionate about this one.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thurs. July 14, 2016: Had Enough of the B.S.

Thursday, July 14, 2016
Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Bastille Day
Sunny and hot

July 14 has always been a rather personal independence day for me, since about the mid-1980s. So I celebrate, in my own way.

Yesterday sucked.

After Tuesday, when, probably for the first time since I moved to the area, I felt my work was valued, on Wednesday, I had to deal with the small-minded, anti-artist attitude that is prevalent on Cape.

The morning was a total nightmare, especially at the “Career Center”, where we had to redo paperwork for the unemployment claim, and then they started telling me what websites I can and can’t search for work on. I’m sorry, but your website that holds jobs for dishwashers and landscapers is not going to have the work that I want and do. I will look for work WHERE I want, in the MY OWN FIELD.

Instead of being pleased that I found work – on my own – that starts tomorrow, even for a short period of weeks – I was berated for not finding a “real job.” Excuse me, theatre IS my real job, and has been my real career since I was 18 years old. Fuck off.

I am done accepting less than I am worth, and taking shit jobs because it fits someone else’s agenda.

I am also fed up with working my ass off, giving, giving, giving, and, instead of it being appreciated, always being asked for more.

Enough.

Buh-bye.

I’m burned out on several fronts, and I cannot and will not constantly put my writing and my own needs to one side because others want things from me. They’re not getting them. For months, now, I’ve sent out warnings and spoken up. A deaf ear has been turned, and demands ratcheted up.

Buh-bye.

On the positive front, I updated the pitch materials with the latest round of title and series changes and got them to my agent, so she can shop everything at the conference this week. I’m not announcing anything until we actually decide we’re keeping the titles!😉

I managed to get home in the early afternoon with a blistering migraine, writing deadlines, and hating the world. Well, not the world, but “people” in general. I like individuals, even if I don’t always agree with them, get angry with them, but I don’t like “people.”

Read and wrote myself back to sanity during the afternoon and evening.

Still didn’t sleep well.

Had a good writing session this morning and got some mowing done. Have to run a few errors and then it’s over to the “Career Center” where I’m required by the state to sit in on a seminar which, I have no doubt, will be an utter waste of time. They were nice when I came in shattered the day I was laid off, but they don’t understand what I do, and they can’t be helpful. Yet I am forced to spend several days a week in there until I get permanent FULL TIME work.

My life does not fit into other people’s forms, and I am not willing to conform to accommodate them.

At least today has started out better!😉

I intend for at least one more fruitful writing session before I have to go to the seminar, and then finish up some paperwork and write tonight.

Tomorrow I start the new job. Wish me luck!

Wed. July 11, 2016: The Difference With Feeling Valued

Wednesday, July 13, 2016
Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Sunny and hot

Wrote in the morning yesterday, and then realized that I had to throw it all out. It took me on a tangent in the book that is unsustainable.

Back-and-forth discussions with the agent on book title, series title, etc.

Got on the Plymouth-Brockton bus in the afternoon to head to Boston. The psychological distance is more than the physical distance, and the physical distance wouldn’t be so bad if the traffic wasn’t so awful. But the bus was good.

I wrote about 1K on the way in to Boston. Found my way to the venue, was there way too early, so hung out in the Boston Garden. Too many mosquitoes, so I found a Starbucks and wrote some more.

The ArtWeek Boston event at Liquid Art was spectacular. I met great people, and there is potential for lots of good projects, especially with one of the theatre companies. The drinks were expensive, and the only food they put out was a single dish of blue cheese cubes, cheddar cheese cubes, some sort of chutney, and a little cut up bread (for the entire group). That was disappointing – and by that, I mean I’m disappointed in the venue, not the organizers. If I’d been enticed by appetizers, I would have changed my schedule and stayed for dinner. And made plans to return. Being stingy at such an event gives me pause.

But I had a blast, other than that. Treated myself to a cab back to the station, made the bus back with one minute to spare. I was starving by the time I got back on Cape, and had a burger at 9 PM, which was not my best option. Paid for that one all night.

But it was the first time, probably since I moved to this area, where I felt as though my work was valued. I realized how much I missed it.

I was offered a theatre job for the next six weeks – part-time at first, full time for the last three. I accepted. It gives me some breathing room, and theatre is a familiar – and safe – environment for me. I start on Friday.

That means I have to finish the radio plays before Friday.

Had to go to the “Career Center” today – and have to go again, tomorrow. There was a problem with the claim, I had to redo paperwork, suddenly they’re telling me what sites I can and can’t search for jobs on? I don’t think so. Their so-called “Job Site” doesn’t carry what I do.

I don’t feel well, I’m frustrated, out of sorts, and have way too much to do. But, that’s the way it goes. I still have a lot for which to be grateful, and I have every intention of finding a great opportunity to slide into after this short-term theatre gig winds up in early September.

And not drop the ball on any of the books, either.

Onward.

Mon. July 11, 2016: Loving the New Horizons

Monday, July 11, 2016
Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Cloudy and cool

Busy times! But good ones.

I sent off the revised book per the agents request on Friday morning. By Sunday morning, she contacted me to tell me she loved it. Whew! When all the paperwork is done, I’ll be able to reveal more. I can share that there’s a new series title, a new book title, and I renamed all of the first six books in the series overview to reflect that.

Once I got the book sent out, I packed up my poor little Macbook and took it to iCape Solutions, where they actually HAD a solution I could afford and live with. MacGeorge is running much better now. Phew! I was so afraid I’d have to run to Staples and buy a cheap PC laptop until I could afford to replace MacGeorge. Love me the folks at iCape Solutions. They actually solve things!

Then, I turned my attention back to the radio plays and to INITIATE. And to a bunch of errands and other things that needed my attention. I’m not satisfied with the radio plays yet. I’m thrilled with the way INITIATE is shaping up. I’m so in love with these characters and the scope of this playground.

I had a meeting on Saturday afternoon that will either turn into something or it won’t. If it does, it will be six weeks of fun and work; if not, I move on to something else.

Sunday, I met a friend for coffee and we caught up. Plans that had been made in misery wound up as a celebration. It was fun.

I treated myself to some books. I bought Juliet Blackwell’s newest A TOXIC TROUSSEAU. I like her Lily Ivory mysteries. I managed to scrounge around and locate the last copy in the store!

Errands and paperwork today, an adventure in Boston tomorrow.

And so it goes!

Fri. July 8, 2016: Opening Vistas

Friday, July 8, 2016
Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Rainy and cooler

Busy few days. Almost all my focus has been on the book, but the revision is ready to send to my agent this morning. It feels good to get it out, along with the new series title and book title. Once that’s all cleared, I’ll let you know what all of those are!😉

Having terrible computer issues — of course I am, when I’m unemployed and in no position to purchase a new one! But, seriously, this little Macbook has been a dream, running well since 2009. It has earned its keep.

Spent some time at the Career Center this week, sending out resumes. I have a meeting tomorrow afternoon on a short-term gig that might be fun, if the money’s right.

I was going to give up my slot at the ArtWeek Boston party at Liquid Art on Tuesday, since I’m no longer a presenting organization, but they encouraged me to come as an individual artist, and they want to pair me up with a presenter. So I’ll be thinking of several possible pitches over the weekend.

My former boss had not signed my severance check, which caused a lot of stress over this past week, but we connected yesterday, it’s signed and deposited, and has even cleared. So that’s one less thing to worry about.

I have to admit that I’m disappointed and a little hurt that I haven’t heard from any of my former co-workers. Someone suggested that they were afraid for their own jobs. Well, I have no time for cowards, even less time now than I did when I was younger. At least one of them was taken in by us when she was removed from her position at a different institution — now she’s a party to doing the same to someone who was kind to her. Points out that these were merely individuals with whom I shared space for several hours a day. I made an investment, both personally and professionally. They did not. But now I’m done. I owe them nothing.

A reaffirmation that this change is for the best.

A sense of freedom.

I also realized, when I spotted a particularly unpleasant individual with whom I had to deal with at that place (I spotted this person at a local store), that, hey, I’m no longer being paid to be polite to you. I no longer HAVE to be polite to you. Not that I would approach simply to be cruel, but if this person approaches me with the usual crap, I no longer have to be diplomatic.

I’ve been in touch with a group of college friends, with whom I did a lot of creative growth when I was just starting out. One of them’s started joking about “getting the band back together again”. I think we’re too far-flung for that, at this point, but we can encourage each other from wherever we are.

The violence all over the country and world is disheartening. The first step in stopping it is cutting off the profit. There are individuals and organizations making serious profits from this type of violence. That needs to be cut off. Then we can start working on the ignorance and stupidity that grows from the idiotic fear of “other” and “different”.

I have lots of errands to run today, so I better get going. Looking forward to next week: meetings, Boston, an adventure on the 16th, a friend coming in the following week.

I have to finish the two short radio plays this weekend, and get back to the play next week. I will probably have to tweak the synopsis for the current book over the weekend, too, but I want to make sure there are no more major changes before I have to write another synopsis!😉

Also going to take MacGeorge to computer hospital to see if we can keep him limping along for a few more months!

Have a great weekend!

Wed. July 6, 2016: Revised Draft Done, Part I

Wednesday, July 6, 2016
Waxing Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Sunny and hot

Well, it was quite the weekend. Part of it was the shock of being fired. It was difficult not to succumb to all the negative sensations that are connected to that.

I immediately went to the “Career Center” and filed my paperwork. They told me to take the weekend off and regroup.

But I couldn’t just do nothing. I’m on deadline.

I did some terrific work on INITIATE, and then I dived into the revisions for CHARISMA KILLINGS, and got the new draft done. I need to polish and proofread, and smooth a few things out, but, if my old, rickety computer holds out, I can get it to my agent on Friday.

Emotionally, I’m up and down, but that’s normal. However, I feel good about the writing I’m doing, which always helps. I just need to get my other ducks in a row.

I have an extension on the play set in 16th century Italy, and the 10 minute radio plays will be done this coming weekend. I have a friend coming in to town later in the month, who is doing a reading at Cape Cod Theatre Project. The research material is coming in for the 14th century pirate play.

As long as I can stay out of my own way, and not wallow in feelings of rejection and humiliation, I’ll be fine!😉

Today was a stop at the Career Center, to register for the session required per unemployment and send out some resumes.

Then, I have some errands to run (like getting in cat food) and it’s back to the page.

“Personal Revolution” was accepted into the Premium catalog, which is great. I hope people enjoy it!

I caught up on some other paperwork this morning, and off I go!

Gotta love INITIATE – I have this character, who was supposed to be a walk-on, more to drive the plot than anything else. Well, he’s decided to woo my female protagonist – and he’s a good choice for her. He’s giving the male protagonist some fits and raising the stakes – which is a good thing!

Gotta love it!
Hope you’re enjoying the summer! I have plenty of yard work to do, but it’s too hot to do much past 8 AM.

Fri. July 1, 2016: Mars Makes His Move & I’m Independent

Personal Revolution CoverFriday, July 1, 2016
Waning Moon

Sunny and warm

Walked in to the library yesterday morning to be told I was fired, the position was “eliminated”. I would have stayed for a few hours to compile contacts info for upcoming programs and finish dangling ends, but I had to turn in my key and leave without even turning on the computer or anything else. Buh-bye.

Had to take my mom on some medical errands, but then I went down to the “Career Center” in Hyannis to fill out the unemployment paperwork and do all the registering and stuff one does in this situation. They were absolutely lovely AND I can go down there and do my job searches on their computers and book time and all kinds of things. In fact, I have to show my face once a week, which is fine, because they’re so helpful. I haven’t had to fill out unemployment paperwork since 1991. It’s kind of different now. But if you have half a brain, it’s not rocket science. They also suggested that I not put so much pressure on myself now (the first three hours after I was fired), and at least give myself the holiday to decompress.

Of course, I’ll be writing for the entire holiday weekend to finish the book that’s due at the end of next week, but that’s another whole ball of wax.

It also shores up how people took advantage of us at the Place That Shall Not Be Named when they demanded we fill out applications for them, instead of going to the center and learning how to do it them-damn-selves.

But that’s no longer my problem, and neither is anything else over there.

I let the people with whom I’d been negotiating projects know I was gone and they’d have to deal with Them directly.

Did the grocery shopping (chop wood, carry water). Did a little bit of work on INITIATE, and finished the proofs of “Personal Revolution”.

Read Lilith St. Crow’s CLOUD WATCHER, which I enjoyed.

I have a massive migraine, but that’s the stress, and once it releases, I’ll be okay.

Didn’t feel up to doing much of anything last night and went to bed early. I promised myself I’d give yesterday over to mourning, and then get on with it. Too many deadlines to indulge in a pity party.

Lots of support from friends all over the place, and suggestions from colleagues in the business who are off-Cape. Also getting a lot of love & support from some actor pals, even though we are all far-flung all over the world on different projects right now. Because when you’re “one of us”, you circle the wagons when the civilians behave like . . .well, civilians.

Up early this morning. Yoga outside, and my first writing session of the day on the deck (on INITIATE).

“Personal Revolution” released this morning. You can find it on Smashwords here. It’s set during an Independence Day event at a New England historical site (a fictional one), so it’s relevant to the weekend, and I was damned if I was going to drop that ball, even though it was rough getting it done. But done it is, and I hope people enjoy it.

Headed back to the page for the CHARISMA revisions. I have a wide stretch of uninterrupted worktime, and I intend to make the most of it and meet my deadlines.

The summer flirt boys are back in town, so that’s always amusing, too. Not that I take any of it seriously, but it’s a fun distraction.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend! See you on the other side, when I’ll update where I am on the deadlines.

Happy 4th! Mars is kicking my ass, and “Independence Day” is a relevant meaning this year! 😉 It will all be good, it just sucks right now.

Wed. June 29, 2016: Non-Negotiable – Back Off When I’m on Deadline!

Wednesday, June 29, 2016
Waning Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Sunny and warm

Very tired and extremely crabby.

The trip to the Newport Flower Show on Saturday was gorgeous. The weather was perfect, they know how to organize – you’d think they were New Yorkers!😉 Actually, a lot of them probably are. It was perfect – beautiful, well-run, everyone was nice. It was beautiful.

Thank goodness for the break, because the rest of the weekend was intense.

The writing deadlines are bearing down on me. I want to make it clear that I have NOT been procrastinating – I’m working as much as I can as fast as I can. But they are all around the same time, and I’m juggling flaming chainsaws.

I can do it, but only if people RESPECT the fact that I am on deadline, this is NOT a hobby, this is my career, and when I say I’m not available for whatever the latest demand is, it is NOT negotiable.

Back the fuck off.

All you do by making continuous, nagging demands is anger me. Every time you nag me, you go to the bottom of the list. I don’t care how important it is to you. I warned you all for weeks that this was crunch time for me; I met my obligations to you up to this point. This is MY time, for my work.

Understand this: the writing ALWAYS comes FIRST. ALWAYS.

I will deal with you when I have met my deadlines, and I will deal with those first who have nagged me least.

If you continue to nag, chances are that I will end my association with you completely.

Because if you get in the way of the writing, you are excommunicated from my universe. This is non-negotiable.

Writing-wise, it was a productive weekend, but that doesn’t make the deadline pressure any less intense. The radio plays are going well. INITIATE is on fire. I’ve written over 200 pages of it over the past two weeks, and it soars. I decided that I still hated every version of the new opening chapters of CHARISMA KILLINGS, tore them apart, and have started over. Since the whole damn book is due on the 8th of July, that makes things intense. I can do it, but only if those around me respect the boundaries. And those around me who do not respect those boundaries will get their heads ripped off if they interfere.

The writing is going well, but there is only so much I can sustain without cooking my brain. The breaks are short, and they are just that – breaks to refill the creative well and dig back down again. Not breaks to accommodate something YOU want me to do.

The book is due July 8th and that following weekend will need me to clean up the radio plays and the stage play and keep going on INITIATE. I expect to be coherent to people who aren’t characters in my book by about the 13th of July.

I will post progress reports here between now and then, and be on social media a little bit, but not as often as usual. Other than that – radio silence.

That is non-negotiable.

I was awfully down in the dumps early in the day yesterday, really blue. But then, things turned around. I got the basic information sorted out so I can write the proposal for our participation in fall’s ArtWeek Boston event. I also scored an outstanding speaker for later in the summer – we have to finalize dates, but it’s terrific. I took a risk and it paid off.

Exhausted when I got home. Ate dinner on the deck. Spent far too much time texting back and forth with an actor/musician friend whose band is currently touring Eastern Europe. We hadn’t caught up in a few months, and we needed to dissect life, the universe, and everything. He’s trying to talk me into trying my hand at song lyrics. Not for awhile – too many deadlines looming!😉

Today will be a long day with a great deal that needs to be accomplished. This event, we have a fundraiser, so I lose four or five hours of much-needed writing time.

Tomorrow, I’m off on an adventure – will share next week.

Then, it’s digging in to the writing for three days, flat out. I plan to be ruthless about not allowing interruptions, although I’ll do yard work in between writing sessions.

I had a good writing session first thing this morning, so it started the day off on a positive note.

Have a great weekend!

Yesterday was a long and discouraging day. But that’s the way it goes sometimes.

It was a frustrating writing day as well – very little writing done in the morning, and less than a page done during lunch. I just deleted a paragraph of frustration that is inappropriate to vent publicly.

Home, exhausted. It was beautiful out. Had a martini on the deck, and we even ate dinner out there. Got a little bit of work done in the evening, but not enough, and fell into bed, exhausted.

Woke up exhausted.

Got some notes done on an upcoming writing section, but that’s it.

Today will be another long day. I have to get a lot done this evening. Tomorrow will be even longer, because of the fundraiser after regular hours.

The weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend, which is good, because I have an adventure planned on Saturday, and then I’m digging in for three days of intensive writing.

Because, especially right now, if it interferes with the writing, it is put aside. No negotiation.

Onward.

I will be so glad when this Mars retrograde is done. It has kicked my ass.

Saturday’s house & garden tour went well – people seemed to enjoy it. Things were busy. I stayed after the library closed and got some work done, and then went over to the play. It was cute, although I wasn’t really sure while all these Cape Codders were speaking in a southern accent.

Home, writing. Wrote all day Sunday, all day Monday, all day Tuesday. 100 pages in longhand, finishing a major section of INITIATE. Worked on the radio plays – trying to figure out as much in advance so that I can get what I need to in the ten minute limit. Developed a logline and quick pitch for the potential new series that the actor pal wants to send to his producer pal. These projects can take years to develop – so I stepped up, did my part, delivered what and when I said I would, and we’ll see what happens from there.

Was asked to return to an organization I left about a year ago; not going to do so. It would simply be yet another drain on my time, and people expecting me to put their demands before my own writing, which I am not willing to do. I tried working with them, and they were detrimental to my writing, not supportive of it; therefore, no.

This will be another long week, with long days at the library, and then, on Friday night, our Casino night fundraiser. On Saturday, I’m headed out to the flower show.

I hit up the wholesale nursery on Sunday and got some great plants, and then hit Country Gardens to get potting soil and a few other things. I mowed a lot, and put down more fertilizer, but there’s still a lot to do.

I’m behind where I want to be on CHARISMA KILLINGS, so that is where the bulk of my focus needs to be for the next few weeks. Somehow, everything will get done!

Yesterday was busy. The Red Sox program was a hit (no pun intended), and the peanuts and Cracker Jack snacks popular. Then there was work to be done on tomorrow’s Tour de Force, along with all the regular library stuff.

When we closed, I headed off to Falmouth, to the awards dinner. I had three sets of directions – all of which were wrong. What should have taken 29 minutes took an hour and a half. I finally pulled into a fire station and the fireman on duty helped me. Because, you know, when you need help, you can always count on firemen!😉

Seriously, he gave me clear, simple directions, and I had no problem finding the place.

The dinner itself was lovely. It turned out that I knew four of the honorees! The food was good, the drink was good, the ceremony was good. All around, a lovely evening.

Another friend was featured on CHRONICLE last night for her book on the Lizzie Borden case. I’m so pleased for her!

Working on the short radio plays – I hope to have a solid draft done this weekend. Also did some work on INITIATE. I have some serious work to do on CHARISMA this weekend, too.

However, tomorrow I’m working extra hours – we have an event partnered with the historical society. I’ve been invited to what sounds like a really cool event tonight, but I’m not sure I have the energy. Still, it might be fun . . .

I have to see how I feel later in the day.

Have a great weekend!
