I badly need this guy’s hair.
So much debate and politicking these days… The fact is, no one has firm answers in this strange time in which we find ourselves. Mark Paxson is one of the most thoughtful bloggers out there, always seeming to engage in discussion without entrenching on a side. He posted lately about where the US is politically, and I have to say, I agree with what he’s saying on what this pandemic might be telling us about ourselves.
In other news, I’m finished with edits on Girl Island, thanks in part to help from people like Mark. I’m at 90,000 words or so, that’s about where it’s going to finish. Not too long, not too short. It’s amazing how many things people with fresh eyes have picked up in the text, stuff I would never have seen. It’s incredible how perspective can alter what you see.
Maybe next week I’ll send out a synopsis of the book. I think the title lends itself to a certain image, possibly, but I’m pretty sure the first instinct would not hold true to the actual plot (intentionally, of course!). It’s been a fun thing to write, really fun.
Of late, I’ve been making notes for my next project. It’s the most ambitious one I’ve considered and I’m pretty excited about it, but it will take some time to flesh out.
Everyone, stay sane, stay good, and remember that we’re in this together.
