Unfortunately, owing to events beyond my control, the Crash rehearsal didn’t happen yesterday which meant the day proved a bit of a damp squib. I did manage to do a little further work reviewing Tilt, and some more on “C”, but you know what it’s like when you’re set on a plan that you don’t get the chance to execute…
But then again, perhaps being disappointed so just goes to show how important Crash has become to me.
It will be an odd one today too as I’m off this afternoon back to the Beal retreat to attend its ‘Grand Opening’ this evening and to read a little as part of the festivities. I should be able to get some work done beforehand, but not too much. And then it’s the weekend.
I shouldn’t beat myself up of course; given the first chunk of the week was so ‘full on’ there’s no harm having one or two quieter days. And yet… frequently switching pace is never easy, don’t you agree?
The other thing looming – and I always get a sense when this is coming – is the hiatus of having projects finished. In terms of publishing, this will hit me in spades this year when in mid-May I simultaneously publish Once Significant Others, An Irregular Piece of Sky, Not the Sonnets, and possibly Tilt – with Crash following the day after the event in June. That’s a massive clearing of the decks; like nothing I’ve ever done before. Not having to work on all those things may feel a little like looking in the void…
