Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

The weekend is here, and I've been a writing fool - at least until 10 last night when I hit the 15,000 word mark. That's closing in on 1/3 of the way there, which puts me right on track for the end of the month. I really don't know if I'll make 50,000, but I'm going to try.

Spent today working on audio gear along with work for a client and some minor script revisions. We bought a device that allows us to record 4-channel audio on the computer. This is going to be handy for our audio theatre productions. We can split FX out on two channels and vocals on two and then mix them later for a better sound. Audio geekery. Sorry.

And I just found a couple more events to distract me from the novel: The final Prime Suspect starts on Sunday. I'm set up to record both parts because we may be out Sunday evening. Sigh. I just found out that one of my all-time favorite UK actors, Stephen Tompkinson, is going to be in the program, so I must watch. I'd have watched anyway, but now it's a bonus.

And speaking of UK programs, the next series of I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue starts Monday on BBC Radio 4. Radio 4 has a live Internet feed plus a Listen Again feature that archives most of their programs for about a week. This show has been on the air since (I think) 1973, and it's one half hour of absolutely silly radio.

So yeah, on those fronts I'm a happy camper.

Went up to The Londoner for lunch today. We took the motorcycle. I wish I'd warn a heavier jacket, but other than that it was a lot of fun.

Time to get the kid from school, finish laundry, do the grocery shopping find a Feline Friday photo, and oh yeah: fit in another 2000 words at some point. Better get moving. Thanks for stopping by this week, and have a good weekend!
