March 30-April 3, 2010

Ah writing:

I revised three different speeches, adding huge swatches of material. Probably time to write a whole new group of speeches, but honestly I don’t think I have anything new to say!

Wrote opening and two (short) chapters of the novel version of Snow in Summer. Agent is working hard on the contract, and I really was not planning to start this till summer. But I had an idea and it started to flow. I have learned not to put a stop-cock into that flood.

Retold a new story for Jewish Fairy Tale Feasts. Over to Heidi.

BUG: revised the first 13 chapters. Sent it off to Adam.

Saw the illustrations and layouts for Princess Pig which is absolutely adorable, except Heidi’s name as mis-spelled throughout.

Also highights:

A seder at Barbara Goldin’s house, a long talk with an editor friend, video interview by kids at Hatfield Elementary, a photo interview with someone doing a book on people who follow their heart’s desire, meeting with the lawyer on my will. And a long walk with Glendon on the amazing spring day, all along the Connecticut River. That last was the best!

All in all, a full few days. I have no brains left from all the writing. A good feeling actually. And though the vrious insurance companies now say I have to stop my physical therapy (they do not reward maintainance, only pay out for new injuries!) I am doing well because of keeping up with my exercises.

And spring has sprung. The daffodils are blooming, the dogwood has burst into bud, bluets are covering the front lawn, and the robins are absolutely screaming with lust.
