I haven't been writing much lately because I have actually been getting some work done!
Much to my surprise, I have several paintings that look like they will be ready for the Paint by Members Show at the Carolina Club. I have a little tweaking to do, but I am quite satisfied with the work that I've gotten done this Summer.
Considering the humidity and the way that has affected the acrylics that I use, that is nothing short of amazing. Ditto, the general lack of sunlight. Painting by the glare of full-spectrum bulbs is better than painting in the dark, of course. But it is hard to judge colour when you can't freakin' see it.
I have also been doing a few watercolours, some photography, a teeny bit of sewing, a little altered book stuff, playing with my ongoing scrapbook project and an outrageous amount of crocheting.
What I haven't done is write. I got almost nothing done on my novel, I'm way behind on my blogging and haven't written either a poem or a fanfic piece all Summer.
For those of you who have been following the ongoing saga of my Grad School App, there is still no word. Trust me, I will post it here when I hear anything. Yea or Nay. At this point, I don't care which. I just want an decision.
I've been checking the status of my app online with the same frequency that some of my writer buddies check their rankings on Amazon.com.
