I think I’m finally settling in a bit here on the rez (I can take a few minutes to blog after all, right?) and the sense of being so numb from infoglut is finally settling out.
Today is a big day of hurdles. Hurdles for me, at least. I just finished the first workshop where we were told that everyone had to have a chance to make a comment before it was opened to the floor. Sheesh! Way to let a guy ease into it by applying group pressure. Actually, it went fine, I made some comments and didn’t feel like a total dingleberry. It’s good, it didn’t kill me, so good.
Next up I’ve got a reading tonight. It’s only us newbies reading together in the privacy of each other but none of us are really excited about it. There is much talk of social lubrication (booze, mostly wine. Kidlit writers are winos?) and we’ll see if that’s really necessary. Later I’ll have a one-on-one with my GA to go over the pages I’ll have already read in public.
Man, the intestinal fortitude is having a hard time satying solid.
