Soon, I hope, summer will be here. After that cruel tease last week that had me out in shorts & t-shirt I wasn’t happy to be being forced back into gloves & long-johns.
Other than a couple of day trips to Stratford for some culture, I don’t have much planned. No travel expect for the Loyalist Writer’s workshop – that falls at the end of June – so maybe it doesn’t count as summer yet anyway. In past years it has been the third week of July so I’ll have nothing to break up the swelter of July and August.
I have yet to decide what to take to the workshop for workshopping. A short story, another chunk of Lazarus Kiss, or some of the Priest’s Niece (which became Coal Dusters). I have prepared my ‘flyer.’ Each year I have some little give-away flyer to foist on my classmates to make sure they remember more than my tee-shirts. This year it’ll be Critic, along with a couple of my old paintings to add some color to it.
At the end of August I’ll be taking in FanExpo 2013. This year I might go so far as to get an autograph or at least have my pic taken with a star (if I can corner one in the men’s room that is). I got my deluxe package back in December – not that I’ve ever made much of the extras it offers.
Simple summer. Unless, of course, lotto max pays off and I can do a shirt shopping spree in Frisco 🙂
