No news may be good news, but it’s also no blog posts.
There is very little happening here at Rapino headquarters these days. I just started teaching my summer class, and I was recently offered a new class that I will be building from the ground up with a fellow professor, so time is short as of late.
Writing has had to take a back seat, or if I’m being honest, it has remained in the back seat. I had a couple projects that I was looking forward to completing, but neither of them got done.
Summer is supposed to be my productive writing time. It’s supposed to be when I can go out hiking, hit the farmers market, have a light breakfast, and still have all day to write. Instead, I’ve been waking into a hellish world of 100 degree mornings, where I’m slicked over with sweat by midday, and ready to pass out by early evening. I need cool weather. I need autumn.
Still, today is not as hot, and barring any sudden turns for the worse, I think a full day of writing is in my future. A tall glass of iced coffee, a blank screen begging for letters to traipse across its back, and a cool breeze coming through my window. That, my dear friends, sounds like heaven.
So I will take my leave, in search of this silver-lined cloud.
