So may we (re)start

Still adjusting to getting back into my daily schedule after spending a week and a half away from it! Our vacation was very relaxing and I even managed to get some great photography in as well. The drive there and back was a bit exhausting (150 miles north, about half of it on extremely twisty roads) but everything else was totally worth it.

I’m focusing mostly on my novels at the moment so the blogs have slipped into secondary position for the moment. Pretty sure I should be back to normal by next week. See you then!

Fly-by: brb, busy with writing stuff

Sorry about that. I know my output here has been a bit patchy lately, and for varying reasons. Right now I’m busy with some writing-related things that are taking precedence!

In the meantime, here’s some Love Tractor. I’ve had this song stuck in my head for a good couple of weeks now and it’s one of my favorites of theirs!

Fly-by: Sorry ’bout that.

I was so busy yesterday with getting back into the swing of things with my current novel WIPs that I completely forgot to prep a WIS post! My bad. I’m now finally (finally!) finished with the revision work for Diwa & Kaffi and will be sending that out soon enough. I’ve got a few active projects back up and running (and possibly yet another new one, at least in pre-production phase) (when they come thick and fast, I rarely ignore them so I don’t lose them) (I know, I KNOW).

On the plus side, I did finally create a few new mixtapes, as I’ve been woefully falling behind on those. I have two finished, one that just needs a proper track order, and two others that are open and awaiting more selections. So at least there’s that!

So yeah, sorry about that. I’ll be back next week with hopefully more things to say. I realize I forgot to post an April Playlist, plus I’ve got a few First Listen ideas on deck as well. Stay tuned!

BRB, scheduling my vaccinations

Oof, that was quite a chore. I just spent close to six hours this morning trolling eight or nine different websites (plus a phone app) looking for COVID vaccination openings, but my diligence and French-Canadian stubbornness PAID OFF. I will be getting the first dose next Thursday over in Mill Valley, which is a shortish trip across the Golden Gate Bridge from here, with dose #2 TBA at the same place. WIN!

Anyway, I was planning on doing a Spare Oom Playlist March Edition post today but due to said trolling (and needing to get some work done later today), I’ll push it off to tomorrow. Thanks for waiting!

Fly-By: Still here, just…

…busy and distracted with a lot of different things at the moment, including two projects and submission research, leaving me with little extra brain juice to come up with anything exciting to post about. Sorry for the lack of posts this month! I’ll try to get back on the ball next week!

(In the meantime, posting a fun boppy tune by Oceanator I discovered a few weeks ago that I’m really digging. Enjoy!)

Fly-by: Taking next week off

I’ve decided to take next week off for a few reasons: One, it’s my birthday on the 22nd. Two, we’ll be installing the new President (Version 46, now available with Vastly Improved Intelligence Capability) and I feel like celebrating that. And Three, I just want to get some offline creative work done and get myself caught up.

See you in a week!

Fly-By: Songs About Coffee

Hi gang, sorry for pushing another fly-by entry your way, but I’m feeling super distracted this morning and I want to get some writing work done today, so…here, have a recent video from They Might Be Giants, featuring songs about coffee that were apparently planned but mostly unused for a Dunkies ad campaign.

Mmm, coffee.

[PS: Speaking of whom, I recently bought a twelve-pack of a special run of donut-flavored beer put together by Harpoon and Dunkin, featuring Boston Kreme stout, pumpkin, coffee porter, and jelly donut IPA. It’s…actually kind of tasty!]
