UPDATE: I am traveling to New Orleans the second week of December for a few days. What should I do/eat/drink there?
I will be working a grand total of 27 days during the month of November. Only 19 in December, but that includes my week of vacation. I have plenty of obligations at work, and extra revising/studying for certification exams needs to begin in earnest. I really would like to start to write again, but I'm averaging 6 hours of sleep a night, and it is starting to show. Even more so than writing, I miss reading. I can't seem to make it through a chapter, let alone a novel. I fit in some DSF
stories several times a week, but only because they are plopped in my inbox and tend to be 1500 words or shorter. I do have a copy of THE MERRO TREE, which I need to finish. Very good book. I would highly recommend it.
On a side note, I may enter into the wonderful world of online dating. Where the actual dating part will fit into my schedule, I am not too sure, but I suppose it is about time to put some effort into my future life--I've been assured that I will have one. Anyone else try online dating and come out alive?
Also, if you have seen the Ender's Game movie yet, I would like to know what you thought. The novel is one of those few that I can actually remember where I was when I finished reading it. And, for all of OSC's confusing personal views, the late 80s/early 90s were when his writing was the most cogent and empathic, with his preachiness integrated into the story, rather than smothering it.
Hope you are well.
