Back in Action
Finally, I had my two days off and wasn’t SICK!
..,put in over 10 hours on the arts writer’s grant and have a first draft complete. It’s a lot of work justifying $33,000! I also critiqued 30 more pages of the novel I’m looking at for pay. I called three publications about the footbridges project. I made a few revisions to a short story I wrote two weeks ago. Then I baked biscuits, started a sketchbook, and practiced a new kata called Basa Dai, which means “storming the fortress.” (Fuck yeah! Storming the fortress! I LOVE IT!)
I also drank coffee and thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course.
Tomorrow? Back to work. The other work. The work I will someday get to quit.
