What to Do, What to Do

SCWP is doing a writing workshop this Saturday, and I'm debating whether or not to go. On the one hand, it's being run by Juan and Shawn. Both are cool people, and I think the workshop would be good for me.

The downside is that it's at ten a.m. on Saturday morning and I'm at the bar until close Friday, then back to the bar from six o'clock until close on Saturday all by myself, and the group is meeting this weekend and I'm giving my brother and possibly one other cadet a ride back to the Academy before I go to the meeting, which means leaving early.

Consider, also, that I'm submitting Albatross on Sunday and still need to revise it and make copies. Tomorrow I'll have some time to work on it, but I'm also meeting with Juan to do some thesis-related paperwork. Then, too, there's that craft show I'm doing next week and the most time I'll have to prepare for it will be this weekend. All together, a busy and tiring weekend, so do I really want to cram one more thing in on Saturday morning?

But, like I said, I think it'll be a good workshop and I think I'd get something out of it. It's also particularly relevant since the workshop deals with the themes/symbolism of rivers in writing and I just so happen to be working on the La Llarona story. It ties in perfectly. Tough call.

I know how you feel. I have to do more reading for class, re-calibrate my security sensors(they've been getting tripped by squirrels again), reprimand my scientists for not working hard enough, recruit new soldiers after the last infiltration by that meddlesome government agent, make sure the janitors are properly cleaning out the man-eating-shark-with-frikken-lasers-its-head tank, update my blog, open up another off-shore account with a different psuedonym, and skim the moat(because I had the pool boy killed for being lippy). On top of ALL that, I still have to finish critiques and put the finishing touches on my submission. I'm not sure I have time for all of that.

Yeah, I hate it when the help gets lippy. I'm running out of places to hide the bodies.

Large furnaces are helpful.

Oh pooh! Why hide the bodies. Turn them into art and display them proudly.
