Been a while

it HAS been a while since i posted. but i haven't been doing anything special. i have been editing the prequel (not last week though, i got sick and totally didnt feel like it) I submitted the coffee maker story to that newsletter but i haven't heard back yet. I have scrolling through Shade and Shadow and working through some errors.

yesterday i worked a little bit on the jamie/petra story at work. i am also now reading Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and... well i never really was proud to be a white (wo)man but its not getting any better. In Margaret Sartor's memoir Miss American Pie which i just finished, a loan from Auntie Mommy Dearest, she read the book in 1976. when she finished it she put it in her diary: "Finished Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. I think it changed my life but it didn't exactly improve my mood."

yeah, that's about right.

  1. no kidding. i remember reading it to the year it came out, and i sat in the yard and bit my knee really hard. i think i still have the teeth marks ... i think that was the version of "cutting" in the 70s, to do something that would hurt worse than what you were feeling. plus i think i was kind of a big dork!
