I’m writing again. Not much – a little every day – but it counts. I like the story spinning out of it, so far, and I like that the only expectation I am holding myself to is that I finish it. Eventually.
I’m reading again! It’s been so long and I’ve missed it so much. The World Fantasy Convention came with its usual amazing book bag, and I spent too much time in the dealer’s room adding to the stash. Most of them short stories. I want to write more short pieces, which means reading more, and the anthologies look amazing!
Hey, it sounded like a good excuse when I argued myself into spending money.
Adjusting to life without a show to rehearse or fifty million things to do in all the free time I don’t have . . . on one hand, the freedom is nice, but on the other, I don’t always know what to do with myself. And while I don’t miss the frantic pace and total lack of personal time, I do miss the focus and direction. Also, I miss acting and the collaborative creativity of putting a production on a stage.
So what’s new with you?
