It is truly amazing how stacked up my semester got with lectures, and the thick of it is right now. Today I gave the keynote lecture at the Lowcountry Writing Project, and Wednesday night I give another lecture — this time free and open to the public, on Tolkien and Beowulf. Unlike my last two lectures, Wednesday night’s festivities should be a relatively easy prep. I gave a similar lecture last fall, so I just need to update and expand things a touch. And I have three days to do it, so no worries.
At the end of the week, this year’s edition of The Shako will be published, which will be yet another weight lifted.
Which surely means its time to load up again, no?
