Hazy and humid
The jury in Mississippi found the Ex-Klansman guilty in the Mississippi Burning case. I’m glad they didn’t blindly follow along behind the mayor.
Managed to get an episode of Charlotte polished and sent. Did some work on an episode of Widow’s Chamber, but, just as I got into the groove of it, I had to leave to catch the train. Very frustrating.
Day work was fine.
Dinner again at Vinyl – the staff is getting to know me, which is always nice. I can just hang out and take my time, really enjoying the good food.
Show was fine. I’m very, very tired, but hanging in there. People were in a good mood because Broadway Bares was a big success. To see photos of the event, click on the link below:
Needless to say, they show the, um, tamer side of the event.
This is the last week on this particular track, which is not too bad physically, but draining mentally; on Sunday, I start the other track, which is more challenging physically, but mentally easier.
Got some good work on Elusive Prayers over the dinner break. It’s coming along more slowly than I would like, but at least it’s coming along. And the intertwining with what’s happening in Widow’s Chamber is interesting.
I need to finish the Widow’s Chamber issue and send it before I leave today. Hopefully, tomorrow I won’t be this exhausted and I can get a few issues of Widow’s Chamber, Tapestry, and Charlotte pounded out.
Plus, I need to finish the horse racing essay.
I have to get out another copywriting direct mailing – if I don’t set the stage now for the weeks when I’m not working full-time on the show, I won’t have the writing work set up during those weeks to fill in.
One of the cats pretended she’d never seen me before when I got home last night. Sigh.
Sad news: An old family friend died. I didn’t know her all that well, but she and my mom had been friends for years, so I feel particularly bad for my mother.
I’m reading P-town by Peter Manso. Interesting to see how an historic and civil rights view of the place compares and contrasts to my childhood memories of the place.
