I finished my most pressing academic projects. My fourth academic article in as many weeks hit the post office Friday. Plus, I finished the edits on my edition of The Middle English Metrical Paraphrase of the Old Testament (this meant writing a number of notes on the poet’s fascinating version of Job, in particular). So I’m done for a short bit while I await all the parts to the Battle of Brunanburh volume I’m editing.
Just in time, too: I leave Wednesday night for Chatty-town, TN, to attend the First Annual Codex Writers Workshop. Should be fabulous. From there I’m headed west for the Rockies: family, friends, and fun are much needed.
This also means that I’ll be back to working on Four Shards, which has been much neglected the past month and a half. I’d still like to get that novel completed by August so I can begin sniffing ’round for an agent to represent my work.
