Brief Personal Update

Now that the holidays are over, I'm surfacing briefly just to let people know that I'm still here.

Things have been busy, of course. The holidays took a lot of prep time, and because they were all during the week, I'm busy catching up at work. I haven't had a chance to do much new writing -- mostly revising -- and I'm still waiting for some final feedback on the novel.

I've been reading comic books as I can, though, and enjoying the unfolding storylines in both the DC universe and in Spider-Man. And next month, although I have no plans to do NaNoWriMo, I do plan to get back into the swing of new writing. (Unless I find myself needing to do more revisions of older projects.)

November will also be busy with other things. In my capacity as a Brookline Library Trustee, I have a bunch of committee meetings to attend; and our Fall Town Meeting is taking place starting on Tuesday, November 15th, with a lot of zoning bylaws on the agenda to be voted upon. And then of course there's Thanksgiving, and two sets of families to see.

Finally, one cool announcement (or at least I think so). gnomi and I have signed up for weekly private lessons at the Brookline Arts Center. We're planning to study the art of penciling for cartoons and comic books. I have no illusions that I'll become a Jack Kirby or a Jim Lee, but learning to draw looked like fun, especially given my love of comic books.

That does sound very cool!! Have fun doing it!

Would you really want to become a Jim Lee? :-)
Ahhhhhhhh, new writing.

Between working on the house, my computer class, and other stuff here and there, I've been lucky to write two days per week. *Sigh*.

Speaking of people learning art, my friend whiskeyrivers is doing something similar, and right now it seems to be having its most popular expression in napkin cartoons. :)
Cool! So if an idea of yours gets picked up for a comic, you can storyboard it. :-)
