June 16 Part III
Fighting the dark cloud hanging over me, threatening to deluge me with an acid rain of the blues. It’s because I’m starting to feel a writing rhythm, and now I have to stop and do the show.
Yesterday, though, when on the break I returned early because it was too noisy to write at The Coffee Pot, I managed to write in the dressing room, with everyone tiptoeing around me and giving me space to write. I appreciate it so much, and will thank them in the acknowledgements for Elusive Prayers.
The artwork for Tapestry and Widow’s Chamber is finalized, and can I just say that Freeman kicks some serious ass? It’s really wonderful. As soon as it’s up, I’ll post the link.
Wrote the Angel Hunt segment of the KIC soap – it runs around 1700 words. Reworked it a few times, but sent if off and it’s been accepted. So that’s good. It will be Episode 4.
Doing some work on Elusive Prayers – I want to be halfway through the first draft by next Tuesday – that means up to page 50. And I want to finish the first draft by the following Tuesday.
I also need to pursue more business writing clients while I’m so busy, so that when I’m not doing the 14 hour days, I have well-paid writing projects on which to work.
And there are mailings to do and . . .
The article on which I’m working for FemmeFan is an extremely personal look at what horse racing means to me. Perhaps too personal – I might edit it to be a bit more objective.
