It is the weekend, which the short story workshoppers have “off” and the novelists do not. I’m still playing catchup with reading and have to upload my short story revisions today. But otherwise it’s been a lazy day of doing laundry and looking for coffee. The local coffee stand is closed on the weekends and the cafeteria doesn’t open until 11 (“Brunch”).
Friday we read aloud the opening scene to either one of the stories we had gotten critiqued earlier in the week or a new creation. Either way it had to apply the things we had learned over the last several days. I feel much better about my opening, though it still needed some work after that. Dinner was at Yello Sub because we were feeling kinda cheap. We had frozen custard at Freddy’s Frozen Custard.
We’ve had sign-ups for events to do this weekend, but not much of the events have taken place. Not sure if they will. =( On the other hand, Kij Johnson has exposed me to Tom Jones doing a duet with Nina Persson of The Cardigans. I feel… unclean. And so I must share.
