State of the KT

This was another hard week, at least in terms of my feeling like an effective human being. And so in lieu of a real post, here’s a quick State of the KT.

Six Stories, Doing Its Best: Rewrite’s trucking along, albeit with a tough knot to untie in the middle.

Apex Magazine Podcast: Both episodes recorded and scored, awaiting intro and show notes from me.

Auditions for Six Stories, Shouted by Day: The first round happened this past weekend, callbacks are this coming weekend. That is a blog post in itself, pals.

March Break Tomfoolery: DONE.

Beer Magic Novel: Currently sitting at 81k. Expecting this draft to hit 105k. Scrambling to finish before my Smoky Writers’ retreat.

Smoky Prep: I have gathered a collection of short story ideas and plots that will be interesting to explore through the week. I really want to do shorts again because I know if I don’t write them at Smoky, I likely cannot think about them until April.

Choice of Games: Removed from my February worrying. It’ll be tight, but I have a plan.

OAC Grant Application: IN. SUBMITTED. OUT OF OUR HANDS.

Mysterious Contract: Trucking along. In all honesty, it’s been a nice palate cleanser.

Gangway! Theatre Co. Shenanigans: I feel guilty that I’ve been less present than I would like, but Blythe seems fairly blithe about it all. (It’s funny, because it’s a pun.)

Henry Wallis, “Chatterton” (1856).

And so we go. It is entirely possible that I have bitten off more than I can chew, and as I’m looking at the calendar…the Mysterious Contract wraps just after Easter. I think I shall take the week between that and dayjobbery resuming to have a real, long, actual rest.

Onwards…

What I’m Listening To This Week

I like Ralph Vaughan Williams’ work. He went around collecting and adapting folksongs from around the British Isles – some of his output is sacred, some secular. This is a secular piece, one of those classic “I will love you until the seas boil and the rocks melt” kind of songs. But it is very soothing and lilting and lovely.
