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.

So hi.

Friday Memeage:

Wearing: Jeans, black sweater with lots of big silver dots, outer space knee-high socks, outrageous necklace from Little Black Bag. (I am trying to be fabulous every day. Makes me feel more professional than writing in my pajamas.)
Reading: Nexus by Ramez Naam.
Writing: about Final Girls.
Knitting: Judah's shawl, Elayna's sweater.
Planning: Well, see above. Plus all of Elayna's financial aid paperwork tonight and tomorrow. Sunday Judah and I are going to a Dessa concert! (Have you heard her stuff? YOU GUYS.)
