Sunny and cold
Meetings all day yesterday.
I got to meet with one of the actresses on the show at her day job, which is working over at WHOI in Woods Hole — and I got to see the Alvin! The Alvin is a deep submergence vehicle for oceanographic research. It’s been getting an overhaul at WHOI — and is an awesome piece of equipment! The people who work on it are the best in their field. What a great experience, to get to see the Alvin live! If you want to get an idea of what it’s all about, this is the link.
Then a meeting at the Marine Life Center, which went well, and we pulled more props.
Came home, sent off a few things that needed sending off, judged some of the pieces for the contest.
Still chasing down missed/late payments. Very frustrated, because I still have to pay MY bills on time, or else. This attitude that people can pay writers if and when they happen to get around to it, no matter what the contract, has to stop.
Need to spend time on the book today, and then rehearsal is at my house tonight. I’m so exhausted, but I can’t stop, because I have to make up for those missing payments and still stay on track with current deadlines.
This has been one of the hardest Mercury Retrogrades of my life.
