GREAT stuff has happened on the writing front since my last post! I have an agent now, Amy Thrall Flynn from Rubin Pfeffer Content! Things fell into place in a way that completely snatched me by surprise and threw me into a whirlwind. I wish I could give more details on how it all unfolded, but that would give away the other big news, and since that official announcement hasn’t happened yet, I have to keep quiet.
So I’ll wait…
Speaking of waiting—looks like my blog reboot failed again, as evidenced by the gulf of space-time between my last post and this one. So without further ado, here’s some birds and stars stuff:
Project FeederWatch has officially begun! I haven’t started yet, but there’s no pressure since the event runs through April 30. This year I’ve got suet, Nyjer seed, and a no-frills mix. The birdseed market hasn’t escaped inflation, so the neighborhood birds will have make some sacrifices, too. No fancy deluxe blends, unless I can score some on the black market. Just kidding. (Although, if any of you know a guy…)
As for the stars, I got a thrill—and I mean, THRILL—watching that DART spacecraft hit the asteroid at the end of September. Just seeing the asteroid getting bigger and bigger as the spacecraft got closer and closer…and then bam! The picture cuts off. Which some people actually found anti-climactic. I guess I can see that, but the thing was torpedoing into the asteroid, so I didn’t expect it to film its own destruction. Those ultra close-ups of an asteroid millions of miles away was totally enough for me.
Okay, that’s all for this post. I hope to be writing a new one in the next week or two with the big news. Until then, in the immortal words of Casey Kasem:
“Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!”
