Awwight!

So I've been feeling a lot better. Thanks to everyone who expressed their concern. All that remains is a slight sore throat that I'm fighting down with water and cough drops.

Some changes

I've permalinked my writing blog

I would like to extend my warm welcome to Coyote Mike and BeakerGirl, whose presences now grace my sidebar.

Today was AWESOME. First it was lunch with my fellow BC High alumni Steve and Nathan, and Chip, our Dramatics teacher. I'd not seen any of them in 3 months, and hadn't seen Nathan in nearly a year, so it was great. On top of that, the four of us form a very interesting conversation dynamic. I wish I could offer up an excerpt, but I can't think of one that properly explains it. I should have recorded it.

Anyways, after that, I had a conference with my Fiction Writing teacher, whose two criticisms on my work were, "I want to see more imagery," and, "I want more of this stuff"(thus far I've only turned in 35 pages) The rest of it was overwhelmingly positive, which is always great to hear. Then I hung out with friends at Gourmand. I feel like I need to be doing something exciting now. Maybe I'll go out and paint the streets red with the blood of the innocent... or maybe go see a movie... I don't know.

UPDATE: SAIJE IS BACK!!! ^_^

  1. those are the only two choices? death and destruction or mindless entertainment? Ah, E/W...the man of passionate extremes

  2. Hmm... interesting that you used "mindless" to modify the entertainment rather than the destruction... is it a value judgement on your part?
