Mmmmm, I woke up to the sound of rain against the window. I like that sound. So! Things are coming along, I've got nothing terribly interesting to share with you, but I felt like saying hi nonetheless.
I'm finishing a novel by Clare Naylor and Mimi Hare called the Second Assistant. What a fun read! I've breezed through this one, and I can identify with the style of writing. I've been reading a lot lately. The Dew Breaker was poignantly creative, the Secret Life of Bees was one to savor. My sister says that Kite Runner is the best she's read in a while, I can't wait to get my hands on her copy.
Things are well, M.s. and I have been playing it down-tempo lately. Work, movies, sex, very little room for socializing, but these things come in phases. Right now I'm quite content to hide away, relaxing half the time, being productive the other half of the time. Although I'm sure it's not split so clean down the middle.
There's a lot coming up. Next weekend it's Vegas, the following weekend it's a special guest to begin work with me on a special project, and the weekend after that, the Man in the Hat is coming to visit. We lunched with him and his wife, the publisher and the agent, while in New York. I got some excellent advice from them.
So, on the whole, things are well. Life is good. And I am living it.
