Snowy and cold
My guest today on A Biblio Paradise is author Cynthia Woolf. Come join us, and drop a comment, entering to win a copy of her book!
We got about mid-range of the predicted snow overnight, about 4”. Not looking forward to shoveling later! I’m going to try using the “electric snow shovel” — something that’s halfway between a snowblower and a shovel, and usually just tosses it all into my face. Glad the morning’s meeting was canceled. The snow’s really pretty, though.
Didn’t get as much done as I would have liked yesterday. Not happy with the play — have to rip it apart and do some restructuring. Worked with students.
Most of the day was caught up in the Inauguration. I thought things ran smoothly, although it must have been a tough day for the Secret Service. The President’s speech was the one I wanted for the first term — so let’s see how much we can get done this term.
I need to disengage from someone who’s trying to be a creative energy vampire. I can’t have my creative energy siphoned off via frustration to fuel someone else’s work. Not acceptable.
Read the material for Confidential Job #1 yesterday — loved it. Will write it up and send it to my editor today. Most of my meetings were canceled, but I have one later tonight, and I have to prepare for that.
Only four more days left to book a reduced-rate editing slot — first 30 pages (Standard Manuscript Format ONLY) edited for $75. Go here for more information — offer ends on the 25th of January.
Don’t forget The Graveyard of Abandoned Projects Workshop from Feb. 4-6 and the Journal into Fiction Workshop from Feb. 11-14. Information on both here.
Happy Snow Day!
