Making busy before the snow flies

Many thanks to all you librarian-types for answering yesterday’s plea, both in the Comments section and via email. You’ve given us a lot of information and it is very much appreciated.

Last BH and I went into the Big City (Syracuse) for the first Rosamond Gifford Lecture of the season. Last night’s speaker was Henry Petroski, an engineer who writes for non-engineers about things like pencils and bookshelves. Attending a “lecture series” made me feel like a grown-up, which is rare.

Today I have to get ready for the Florida trip Friday, deal with email that is clogging my computer, brainstorm the next round of revisions, and figure out where to order curtains for the windows I’ve been working on. Oh, and go to the gym. This is Week 4 of my Get the Middle-Aged Spread Under Control Program. I think it’s beginning to work.

  1. Hi Laurie,

    I just heard from your representative. I am so disappointed that Wall is missing out on you again! (I was going to try to bribe you with a chocolate fountain–I may get one for my wedding!) But then I read that you are back to hitting the gym. (I also teach aerobics. Can I bribe you with a free class?) Didn’t think so.

    I love reading your live journal. You are so down-to-earth. I was really looking forward to meeting you. Maybe some other time.

    Just want you to know my classes loved Speak!

    Dear Laurie,I just finished reading Speak. I read it for extra credit in my creative writing class. My teacher told me that Speak is one of her favorite books. Now it is one of mine. I can relate to Melinda Sordino, because she is a wallflower like me. Thank you for writing this book. I had trouble putting it down. I want to be a writer too someday. I can’t wait to watch Speak on DVD.
