I am finally fully recuperated from my whirlwind trip to Hollywood this past weekend. We had a fantastic time and managed to stuff a ton of sight seeing into the day and a half we were there. Even got to see a movie being filmed...sooooo cool!!!
Last Wednesday i was a featured reader at The Screening Room, a local venue that holds a open mic night for poetry and other literary works once a month. It's a very cool place to go..very warm and the people are so supportive. The reading is online to listen too and I feel horrible, now knowing I went almost 10 minutes over my time...eek!! Didn't realize I went that far over!!! I listened to it just now, and I sound pretty good...not nearly as nervous as my previous readings. Hopefully everyone enjoyed it. If you care to have a listen...here it is:
Now I am back and the trip is done...spent so much time the previous two weeks researching and wondering and worrying about this trip. Now I can get back to work. My novelette is finished...but I'd really love to take the last few chapters to my writers group for critique. But that will take time...I can only take one chapter to a meeting. We have time constraints. But I am so darn anxious to send this out!
And I wonder what to work on next. Do I start a new novel??? Do I work on another novelette? I just don't know.
