Writer’s Log: Stardate 16-1-10
Today was MLK day. So I decided to take a bit of a break and spend some time with the novel Hunger Games, enthusiastically recommended to me by my friend Melinda Shaw. Some 6 hours later I have finished that remarkable story. This is the first time in months that I have been completely lost in a work of fiction and I am relishing the feeling.
I did do a little work though. Dean Nelson and I exchanged a few emails about another book project together. Our Quantum Leap collaboration went very well. And Tom Oord and I continued to work on a major new grant initiative that we will hope will come to life in a year or so.
But mostly I just read a novel, in my big chair by the fire. And made popcorn. And wondered if I could ever write fiction.
