Sunny and cold
Seven pages of Ransagh last night. It’s moving along well. I already passed my page goal on this project for the month.
It seems bits of my operating system have vanished, and Colin suggests a system re-install. I’m trying not to panic, because every time my computer’s needed that, even if a tech support person has done it, it’s been at least eight hours of hell and then the system has never worked again and I’ve had to buy a new computer. I can’t have that happen this time.
Why doesn’t Microsoft have to answer to any consumer organization about this? I don’t get it.
In any case, I have to get some writing done before heading to the theatre. I have a double day, but it should (famous last words) be my last show for about six weeks. I need the break desperately. I dread going in. I’m tired of the chaos. It’s a wonderful show with lovely people (for the most part), but it’s simply become too much. And my back is killing me from the lifting and the raked stage. The injured shoulder is starting to roll forward, too, and if that goes out again, it won’t be pretty.
Yesterday was such a good writing day, and I’d like to have several of them in a row. Hopefully, during the period I’m teaching, that will happen. I’m very excited to start next week. The thought of being able to help interested writers improve skills and encourage them to follow their writing dreams is thrilling to me.
I still can’t figure out if I’m going to work on Angel Hunt or Glam Hearts before I leave. Better just stick in a disk and do SOMETHING.
