back to work

Posted on October 4, 2009 at 11:44pm 0 Comments

The past few days have brought several observations.



Little things: like wondering why I was not hungry at all during Yom Kippur. If anything, I was a little zoned out. I finally came home and drank some coffee because I was afraid that I would fall asleep during the performance that the choir—that I am a part of—was giving. I wish that I could say that I was occupied in prayer. No—I just wasn’t there at all.



I’ve been spending money, which I normally hate to do: buying a… Continue

eve of Jewish New Year

Posted on September 18, 2009 at 4:59pm 0 Comments

I am trying to feel “Happy New Year” when so much hate is creeping across the land. After all, I know so many good people. Even my workshop members who I drive batty.



I got another call begging me to write or call my senator about health care. Done that 2 or 3 times already. I guess that I will take a page from my elders’ notebook and do it again--even if I don’t think they are listening. On Facebook, I pasted a phrase from Sh’ma which came, the essayist says, from Kotzker Rebbe:… Continue

Sigh

Sigh--I went all "Black" on my writing workshop tonight.



One tires of having to explain the substructure of a story. On the other hand, it is instructive to see much how they miss. I have more or less decided that I will explain, but I am not going to denature Black culture.



In science fiction, you don't stop and explain how "ray guns" work, and I am not going to stop and explain that Texas Southern is a Black school and that maybe a character described as a student there… Continue

Goals

Posted on September 10, 2009 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

My blog is mainly over at LiveJournal, but perhaps I should double post here:


Did I finish a story for workshop? Yes, I made my goal. A bit late. And it means that I didn't log on to "work" work tonight. But it was emailed out to members. Now I guess that I have to do real work. And think of another story.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
