It’s not finished, but earlier today I got to the last line (unless it changes) of “Swamis,” the mystery/romance/coming-of-age/fake memoir/novel I’ve been working on for, if I’m counting the experiences that have gone into it, all my life. It’s at 110,100 words on 02/02/20, subject to editing for inconsistencies, redundancies, contradictions, and just plain bad (inadequately great) writing. Hopefully not too much of that.
I’m not sure how long this process will take, though I have been obsessively attacking the work lately, taking advantage of time afforded me (not that I can afford it) by the slowdown of work in winter. And then I have several people I want to read it. And then…
But, maybe before I get to that point, I am planning on having at least one public reading. One is already scheduled. Thursday, March 5, 6pm (I think), Port Townsend Public Library. This is part of a program set up by PT ripper and librarian Keith Darrock.
I’ll update this, and will, no doubt, mention it with every new posting.
MEANWHILE, continuing my “Psychedelic Period,” I have colored two recent drawings. They and others, along with some Original Erwin t-shirts are available at Tyler Meeks’ DISCO BAY OUTDOOR EXCHANGE. All are limited editions, numbers limited by, um, me.
I should mention that the Disco Bay is open, winter hours, ten am to six pm, Thursday through Sunday, with gear for all your action activities on the Olympic Peninsula.
Also, in the should mention category, I have some prints available, including some from earlier periods, at THE CELLAR DOOR in Port Townsend, open nights, so, pretty much there after six pm for sure.
