This morning Bella and I hit the beach running. We appraised the newest dawn and found it good. I wrote my daily letter before we walked and then ate when we came home. I was writing by 8:30 and I wrote for two hours. That is how I will tame technology and make it mine! I didn't start up the internet until my work was done. And it was easy to keep it at bay.
I am happy with work on Bright Angel. I will be sending it out this weekend to my second set of readers. Then, after I've made any changes deemed necessary I will start the fun process of sending it out. When it is OUT I will start my revision of The Rock Walker. I'm not inspired to think of True - it might need more time in a drawer or it might be let go altogether. At any rate, I'm not there yet. Also I need to spend some time on my frippery - Lost and Gone Forever, the true story of Darling Clementine - the play I'm writing.
The sis of my sweet patootie arrives tomorrow. She has recently had a book published - Dear Everybody - it is a wonderful true story of a woman who came here to North West River in the thirties, from Park Avenue, and married a trapper. Here is the Amazon link This is a great read - I loved it to bits and she's been getting wonderful press. She's going to be signing and selling in Goose Bay on Saturday at their annual craft market. I'm going to help her set up and hopefully meet local folks that I haven't yet.
Feels good to be back in the saddle again. How do you keep your discipline in the storm of life?
