Happy New Year

I spent most of my free time in December working on the two books due to come out next year. One project is pretty much complete, though I keep having second thoughts about it -- not the fiction, but the essay and the interview. I really prefer to speak behind the mask of fiction, rather than directly with my own face visible.

Patrick says the essay and interview are both good. Maybe I should trust his opinion.

Now I have to go back to the other book and give that manuscript a final look.

Otherwise, I keep looking for work and finding nothing. I really would like a part time job, for the money it would bring in.

We had a nice, quiet Christmas and did nothing on New Year's Eve. New Year's Day is bright and cold, four degrees at the moment. There's a decent amount of snow on the ground. I am making tea and thinking about writing or maybe cleaning house.

The blogs I read are in agreement that the noughts were not a good decade -- a kidney stone of a decade, as Doonesbury said about the 70s, a decade I rather liked. So, good riddance to them. May the teens be better.

yes I would agree on the noughts being a nasty decade.
the job scene sucks. Steve has been taking classes but will be back looking full time next week.
The only real nibbles he has had have been three separate ones form the same company in Southern Ca. I think that the company just doesn't want to commit to spending the money.
