Now that Christmas break’s in full swing, it’s time to give you readers a ring! (Lest I mislead, this post has nothing to do with holiday jazz, telephones, or bells — although I did play Christmas music on the carillon a week ago.)
Work for the term (writing internship, that is — storybuilding is never done) finished last week, which means instead of squeezing story time between meetings, teaching, and rehearsals, I have to squeeze it between Christmas activities, housework, and moving the cats off the drawing board.
And there are developments! Here’s a smattering:
- Terry Treble Music Adventures: Books I & II are in the printing queue!
- Post-November novel “Goodness, there’s a long way to go” revision/keep writing/overhaul process has begun
- Operation: Opera continues — and hopefully will produce a tighter version of The Antiquary
- Preliminary work on commissioned art for Centralia Carillon
And so many more things to explore! Who knows? Maybe I’ll wade into the realm of creative non-fiction and write a collection of this Christmas season’s “everyday adventures.” Life is an adventure, after all; we just have to remember it as such.
