* Things are going to be very busy here for the next week. Kidling2 and his gf flew out to Iowa yesterday for a week's vacay with her family. Kidling1 is flying in today for a week vacay from law school. I'm almost out the door to pick her up and then we're going to a teensy circus tonight!!! SOOOOOOOOOO excited about that. Tomorrow we'll leave mid-day for the coast! And I'm triply excited about THAT! Back on Tuesday and she has to churn out a 25 page draft and I have to work on sculpture and The Viking has to go hunting. Then Kidling2 is back and we're planning a family something or other here next Saturday.

* Nice to have so much to do, but it does cut into my "IT" literary dissection which is going on over at pathos_horror!! We've had some good conversations and so far are only officially discussing the opening chapter! Ha! But it's time to jump in entirely and I trust the comm members over there to keep that going. ashbet has already begun a discussion about the "seven"! Check it out!

* I'm trying to outline some ideas for NaNo. I will begin shop-talking after this week.

* I have a longish post begun about art and community. The sculpting class has had me thinking about how art requires community. Even writing! I'll dive into that next week, too.

* I enjoyed "To The Bone". But I do love Keanu above most actors. I thought they dealt well with the subject matter and use of anorexic body doubles.

I just really love this guy's earnestness -

You are busy! These sound like wonderful plans. A 25 page brief? Kids today have it so easy. In my day, they were 50 page briefs! (Cough, cough.)

Heya G! We are busy and it's good. How are YOU??? Hear you're not resting enough. Hmmmm....grab some tomes and sit the heck down!

Hahahaha - I'll tell her!

My leg is healing and it looks like I won't need surgery. As for sitting down, I'm the model patient. You can imagine how hard it is to sit still for weeks on end, and the burden this puts on K, who has been marvelous. I will be glad to be mobile again.

I've been enjoying the "IT" re-read and discussion -- just got past Eddie C. and Mike and the bird. May not be writing much in the comm until Monday, it's a busy weekend for me as well . . . but we'll see!

If you don't have time to stay on top of it, A, I'll be back Wednesday. Thanks for that great post! Time to move into all of Section I now...

We could also start posting links and such.

Sounds fun, hope you have fun with kidling.

I'm just going to see how things go with IT, I find my enthusiasm for the book waning.

Yay for Nano shop talk. And yay for post about art and community, can't wait!

NaNo is really what I'm looking forward to now, J. I need to start writing with a plan.

I have "thoughts" about IT.

a teensy circus! i hope it was fun. it sounds like you have a lot planned for the next few days, but the plans also sound fun.

i'm looking forward to the nano discussion, altho my process is mostly "start writing, see what happens".

It was so much fun! I'll have to post about it when I get back from the coast. I got a great pic of one of the clowns with some balloons so that will be motivation for me to figure out the damned embedding.

NaNo!!! I am so looking forward to it, C. Glad to hear you'll be hitting the keyboard!
