Today has been a day full of writing.
More accurately, today has been a day full of blogging. Blogging for Urban Meliad, writing half a dozen posts (plus a couple of flash-in-the-pan bits and bobs that don't really qualify) for The Pagan Blog Project, most of which are actually to finish up PBP2012 (not because there's any kind of requirement, but because I just kind of don't want to leave it un-done).
I've written so many, and I want to just post them all at once - a sudden flood of content from the Birch Maiden. But I think that would, by and large, be a bad idea. Part of the point of starting the blog - and having it be separate from Syrens (or the various other blogs I work on) - was to give myself a place to build up thoughts about my own path where other people could see them
. So I wait.
I twiddle my thumbs.
I'm listening to Lee Harrington talking about Complex Ecosystems of the Heart
(which is really good, fyi. Go have a listen).
I'm wondering if I can write another post, store another post, get the ball rolling on another post. S is for Sacred Sexuality. B is for Beeswax. Or Basil. W is for WomanSpirit Rising
. I don't even know what X would be for... other than, maybe, "Gifu". But I've already done R is for Runes so... not so much. :-P
My wife is spending the night chez her NPPP, then taking her to the airport early tomorrow morning.
I need to prep the VoV promo material, make the FB event and the VoV blog promo-post
, and get the word out on Apt 613, Art Engine, and where-ever else I can hang it up. I need to call someone at PTS (not happening tonight). I need to get in touch with a couple of local burlesque dancers to see if they have a cheap rate for fundraisers.
I am tired
. I've only been up for about 12 hours - not actually that long.
I've done a blog post for VERSeOttawa (it bugs me that I'm the only
person doing blog posts for VERSeOttawa - there are six of us on the committee, and we ALL have the passwords to use the account. FFS). I cross-posted it to my own writing-focused blog (meta?) because... it was appropriate, honestly. And then I did a post for my singing-focused blog (that I hardly ever update because, er, I hardly ever sing...)
It's been a very writerly kind of day.
Also, good grief. Because if I wasn't publishing all of this stuff on the internet, but was instead writing them (for no money) and binding them into a book of essays that I would eventually shop around to a publisher, I would probably have an easier time of it when it comes to thinking of how I spent my day as "by being a Real Writer and actually writing instead of wasting time". I'm not sure why that is, but it's seriously annoying. :-P
My toes are very cold. I'm going to bed.
