1. Make Lists


Do you know SoulPancake?  You should know them. Click on the link.  Click on the picture, check them out.
Here is my list this week of things to do on my project. I know – boring, but boring — well — These are the mundane details that lead to the next thing –

  1. Pick through already written work, decide what goes in the book what gets tossed
  2. rehearse new pieces for recording
  3. set up times  for recording
  4. decide if I’m going to have any instrumentation on the disc
  5. set up site for hosting audio recordings so qr codes can go right in the book
  6. start thinking about cover art
  7. CD art?
  8. double check prices on cd reproduction?
  9. Talk to printers in town about binding options
  10. edit
  11. keep editing
  12. schedule a launch, a reading, a something –
  13. test out some new pieces at other open mics

Tomorrow, I will tackle something from the todo list and something from the creative list — Be creative with me – then talk about it, and then tell some one else to come along —

No excuses.

Thirty Days of Lists – List One


A friend from home had been posting lists everyday – and by Friday I couldn’t  resist any more. Lists are my thing, they are everywhere, little slips of paper, little missives from my earlier self, tucked in notebooks. They are my favorite thing to write.

September is my least favorite time to write.  I can barely get paragraphs out, so occupied is my brain with the beginning of school.  So this challenge from Thirty Days of Lists is good for me.  A little bit of writing, a little bit of crafting, a little bit of photography is just what I need to suss through the writer’s block.

And sure, don’t mind me if I am starting 22 days behind.

List #1 – I

  •  They are evidence of work done
  • or work not done.
  • They are parties planned
  • or meals made.
  • They remind me what I want
  • or what I need.
  • There is satisfaction in a list completed
  • or just a list created

summer by the numbers


36 ideas and 42 items on my to-do list.
3 weeks worth of classes, and 6 days of training.
87 schemes, even though my friend warns that we “flirt with future living”.
22 stanzas, that belong to 12 separate poems.
4 unit plans half undone. Read the rest of this entry
