The art and the artist

DSC03035Been an interesting week and it’s only Tuesday. Classes started so I’m back in “professor” mode, which means wearing ties and button down shirts. My bow tie collection is growing to the point where I may not have to wear a regular tie at all for a while, which is cool. I’ve been wearing bow ties for a while, even before bow ties were “cool” so it’s nice to see the rest of the world jumping on the trend.

Also this week, though, there’s been some interesting artistic endeavors. Yesterday I recorded narration about the history of Kaunas, my adopted city and on Friday, I have an audition for a film. I’m also supposed to consult on a stage show this week, I’ll have a new short story published on Monday (and I’ll submit the script I wrote two weeks ago) and I have the beginnings of an idea for another new piece of fiction. Now I just need to make sure I actually keep up with the writing. Mostly I’m posting here so I have someplace to hold myself accountable. It’s very easy to let work get in the way of work so I need to make sure I use my time better. I’ve started tracking my time usage on various projects. I’m finding that tracking things like time and word counts is quite beneficial to my process. It’s only taken how many years to figure that out?

So.. new story starting on Thursday. If you see me, ask how it’s coming and make sure I have an answer. Busy is good, right?
