Arrival

* The trip from Woods Hole to Connecticut was generally uneventful, give or take a half hour delay caused by immobile traffic; which, in turn, may have been caused by construction, but I'm not sure. I read the whole way, The Shadow of the Lion by Mercedes Lackey and various other people. It's set in a fantasy-world Venice. Some of the characters spend a great deal of time on rooftops, where there are a notable lack of pigeons. Also, everytime characters go anywhere, the destinations are several miles apart. They must go out of their way to find places no where near each other.

* It turns out that the hotel had unlimited free local calling, despite signs in the rooms. If I had known, I might not have curtailed my comments and online work as much as I did. On the other hand, my days were full and busy enough as was without trying to fit even more into them.

* I can't find a phone jack in the room I'm staying in now. I know there must be one somewhere. Mustn't there? So I'm using my grandmother's computer instead, which isn't near so convenient for me: especially since it means I actually have to see the spam I receive for once.

* Is the writing workshop over already?

can't beleive the trip is over already either - glad the rest of your bus route was uneventful. I have a livejournal account now - imagine you can link to it from this...? maybe, I have a lot to learn about the details. I am trying to get started on my paper revision, and the juices are just not flowing.

hope all went well with your grandmother - take care -

Re: woods hole
It's good to hear from you!

Yes, indeed, LiveJournal makes it extremely easy to followup to comments. When you (or anyone else) comments on my LiveJournal, the comment is automatically emailed to me. This is an optional feature - you can turn it off and on - but I don't know which it is by default. The email it sends me (and possibly you in response to this comment) includes a link to directly reply to the comment. It's all very convenient.

I'm sorry to say that I've done no revision on my paper this weekend, but at least I've been busy and catching up with my grandmother instead. LiveJournal is good for encouraging me to write something at least once a day, whether or not it's for my own work. I haven't even finished reading through my feedback comments, and that I do want to do tomorrow - especially now that I've finished the fiction book I was reading on the bus trip and the last day or two.

I mention you and printmaking to my mother, who said there's a large, thriving community of printmakers in Lawrence. She mentioned names, but it didn't occur to me to write them down at the time since she can probably tell you even more directly.
