Of Book Releases and Free Music!
Release weekend coincides with a music festival that's really important to my husband's label. A whole lot of talented people we love but never get to see are coming into town from far away. D has to do a lot of the last minute stuff that always crops up with his arm in a sling. Last night at a meeting he forgot and shook a hand. He manfully squelched the scream of pain, but I could see how much it hurt. (All. My. Fault.) Normally, we'd host some of these bands at our house. But there's no way this year. Bands have a lot of stuff, and parts of our house are just plain unsafe. I am sad I won't be able to dodge sleeping bodies and bags of gear on the floor on my way to make fifty or sixty pancakes the morning after the festival. Very sad.
Monday: 4272 (is that right? it is. that's creepy.)
Did a "Backwards Outline." There's probably a more technical term for this, but it's where I go back through a manuscript and outline each chapter from the end to the beginning, summarizing and word counting each one. For some reason, I catch things going backwards that I don't going forwards.
Yeah, I think I maybe wrote a blog. :)
Um, what was that other one? Books and reviewing? I'm currently reading Kristie Cook's Purpose, the sequel to Promise. I'm loving Purpose but I'm reading a lot slower than usual. I have a lot going on, I guess. I did read Valmore Daniel's Angel Fire and did a quickie review on Goodreads about that.
So I think I'm catching up. Take that, you stupid tornado.
Here's a song from the band that would have been staying at my house but can't, (stupid tornado!) the totally amazing and very nice
Glossary from Murfreesboro, TN:
Song: Blood on the Knobs
Album: The Better Angels of Our Nature
