The first sentence I wrote today…

…had nothing to do with the new novel. I’m now concentrating on finishing up my children’s biography of Janis Joplin, which is what this is from:

She arrived home in Port Arthur in May, 1965, and, wrote her sister Laura, “We welcomed her with open arms.”

I should have this out of the way by the beginning of next week. I’m also working on some stuff for the Saskatchewan Science Centre and a book called Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw for Red Deer Press, and I’ve got an outline for another book for Enslow to prepare and the new novel to revise and I’m keynote speaker next week at the annual meeting of the Consulting Engineers of Saskatchewan and on Tuesday there’s the official launch of A Safe and Prosperous Future: 100 Years of Engineering and Geoscience Achievements in Saskatchewan, and of course there are the weekly science columns and general website and blog maintenance and there’s still a lot of work to do around the house and I’ve got two school readings coming up in Yorkton early in December and there’s going to be a bunch of concerts and things and dinners and stuff and winetastings and so on and we’re going to Aladdin at the Centre of the Arts (sorry, Conexus Arts Centre) and Just So Stories at the Globe and there are auditions for Regina Lyric Light Opera’s musical brunch coming up and…

…and people wonder why I don’t watch much TV. Sheesh!
