Sunny and cool
Celebration of Iambe
Today is the celebration of Iambe, the goddess of communication for whom Iambic pentameter was named.
Polished the revision on Episode 104 of the Big Script Project and sent it off, along with Episode 105. Episode 106 (due tomorrow) is in good shape, and I’ll give it a polish tonight and send it off tomorrow morning.
I also finished and printed out the Tip Sheets for tonight’s Writers Night Out, which is about Writer’s Block, and gathered some other useful materials. Went to the grocery store, got gas in the car, mowed the terraced back portion of the lawn (it looks really good now).
Finished a book I read to review. Need to do the review for my editor and get it out. It took me longer than usual. I struggled with it. I see what the author was trying to do, and I don’t think it worked.
The past few days, I’ve been looking at what was originally called POWER OF WORDS, but what I think I will rename CREATIVE UTOPIA. I really like it, and still believe in it. I wonder if my current publisher would take it on. It’s a weird project — I always assumed I’d have to get it out independently.
Fighting both a migraine and back spasms. They’re both winning right now, unfortunately.
I have a long day ahead of me — library, Reference Committee meeting, library, staff meeting, Writers Night Out, polish on the script.
The daily yoga/meditation/first cup of coffee on the deck really help me mentally focus for days like this.
It’s good busy, a feast of great things. I just can’t seem to get over the exhaustion.
