Productive morning so…

Productive morning so far. Dealt with various and sundry in e-mail, got the latest batch of SH checks and contracts done and out in the mail. I still feel like I'm in catch-up mode from last year; it's true that I've started new classes and new projects, but they're going at a slow enough pace still that I can find time to finish off some of the bits and bobs that have been hanging over me. I still have some stuff left, of course -- portfolios to mail back to students, various legal things, SH t-shirts and such, the POD book...oh, there's still plenty of stuff. But less, much less. One or two more slow weeks at school and I really might get caught up. Hah! :-)

Next, fellowship stuff; then I write a crit for tonight's class. I'm a bit nervous of what they'll think of those two stories; I like 'em, but in some ways, they're quite...mm...not commercial, exactly, but, I dunno -- not as clearly literary as some of my stuff. They're full of sex and love and death, in moderately dramatic ways. I think that's okay; I think I've been a little afraid of putting that kind of thing into literary stories, for fear of it seeming like a cheap trick. But literature is about life, and a decent chunk of life is about sex and love and death, so there y'are. They'll just have to cope. At least if they hate them, I have the comfort of knowing that some of you liked them. I do so appreciate those comments...

Will be out from 2:00 'til 9:30 or so, if any burglars are curious. :-) But I have a very wary landlord next door.
