I took that great shot at the Chicago Cultural Center, where I am currently sitting and grading papers. So, as you my have noticed I haven't posted for a while. Unfortunately, I have been busy NOT working on my novel. I forgot how intense summer school can be, but my students are amazing. I spend most of my time grading and writing grievances for my union members.
Still, I have been thinking about the ending of the current novel I am writing, The Harvest, and a sequel where the androids play a greater role, but one step at a time. The glimmer of hope is what has me captivated. There will be hope in my novel because the characters will grow in that direction.
On a practical note, I think from now on, I am going to come to the Chicago Cultural Center to write because it's relatively quiet and close to work. (Of course, as I finish this entry, someone is practicing her singing, and it is gorgeous. I think singers come here for the acoustics. How wonderful!)
Here is to finding quite places and spaces to write. #Resist
