I’m a little irritated that I didn’t get up earlier, early enough to get something done on editing “Swamis.” I’m only about half way through what Microsoft Word is telling me is 240 pages, 117,000 plus words, and I’m hoping to get it all done before reading a bit of it at the Port Townsend Public Library this coming Thursday, 6pm.
Pimping, always pimping; shameless self-promotion.
It’s my own fault, of course; I didn’t have to spend a day arranging, meeting up, loading up, searching for waves, participating in endless hiking, surfing, more hiking, more surfing, more (“It’s good for you”) hiking, repacking, getting back to civilization, stopping at Sunny Farms (Yogurt cone- “Good for you”), not napping; but, then again, maybe I did.
It’s kind of what we do the rest of it for. ANYWAY, because Trish and I share this (her) computer, and I do my ‘alone time’ in the morning, I do sometimes do some drawing in the evenings/night time. I did the lower version first, thought it a bit sketchy, did the ‘hold it up to a light’ trace the outline on the new side technique. That would be the upper drawing. Then I asked Trish which one she preferred.
Okay, I won’t hold you in suspense; she liked the lower one, even though there are scratchy ‘get the pen going’ lines on the right side. See? Here’s a side by side:
All right; now I see problems with both of them. Maybe tonight I’ll…
Anyway, I had to write a proposal, send off business type emails (painting business), check bank accounts; and now… well, maybe I can do fifteen minutes or so on “Swamis.”
Oh, wait; another thing I enjoy about a multi-person surf strike, and thanks Keith and Steve, is the opportunity to… I don’t have time to get into it right now. Okay, it’s like we each had a different surf experience, with different highlights; and we each have a slightly different story to tell about the same trip.
And we will.
