Productive Monday

I had a fairly productive Monday. I read four of the ten manuscripts I need to read for the residency, I got some work done on the web page, and, most importantly, I started writing again. I only got about three pages of material down for Chapter 8 of my novel, but they were three good pages and that’s, well, good.

I even took some time out to visit with Dad and John, as I had to return John’s camera and a suitcase I borrowed from my parents but didn’t end up using for the New Orleans trip. I didn’t stay long, as I wanted to get back here and get more work done and for a while I felt guilty about that, about not having spent more time hanging out with my brother, but then I kicked myself and I was better.

Stef came home and we watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, one of the plethora of DVDs we got for Christmas. I still marvel at how the third film is leaps and bounds ahead of the first in terms of story, direction, and acting. I really dig where the film series is going and I hope they’re able to pull off making all seven of them eventually.
