It's been a long summer and autumn transitioning from school to professional life, but now, as options seem to be presenting themselves more clearly, and as I settle into creative work--and get out of my own little mad marketing frenzy--it's time for a short break. Irene and I are going to London over Thanksgiving, to enjoy another town, and see some theater. If you have any suggestions, drop me a note.
Today, I'm watching old movies, research for my one-man show. I'm also jotting structural notes for the 50,000 word novel I'm writing during November as a participant in "National Novel Writing Month." An hour per day of fast fiction writing will be my warm up to my main work of the first half of the month, writing a rough first draft of the show. A few hours a day with words and sentences? A vacation in its own right.
