It is Friday and I am getting. Shit. Done.
Did the writing that needed doing on the current story - this one doesn't want to pour out all at once, it lets itself out a little bit at a time.
Wrote an appreciation of Heather Dale for the Boskone program. (I was asked to do one for Tricky Pixie last year. I imagine the dude who processes these wondering just who the hell I am and why I'm friends with all of their musical guests.)
Did a bunch of small things - in particular, the small things that keep big things from getting done, the "I can't do X until I know/do Y" things. I did Y.
I have one more nonfiction thing I have to do - not due today, but I'm on a roll so let's go
- and one flash fiction thing I'd like
to do. I'm six rows from the end of Judah's shawl - those rows are very long, so I may or may not be able to finish today, but I'll be able to finish by Saturday evening. Then I get to move on to Elayna's sweater, already in progress.
My silence this week is a deceptive sort of silence. Sometimes I'm quiet because things are awful and I can't bring myself to speak. Sometimes I'm quiet because I have all the plates spinning perfectly. Today's the latter.
