|10:53 am - A daunting task. . .|
I admit, I am somewhat afraid to look at my friends pages. I suspect I will do that after work today.
I'm looking forward to a good lunch at the Union, I think, where I will edit the piece I wrote for Oak Leaves. I'm currently somewhat unhappy with it, but it'll do, I think.
BTW, if you're working on something for OL, please get it in before Jan 1, 2006. I'm tired of seeing my crap in there. Flood the Chronicler with submissions so my name doesn't need to appear. My work is crap, anyway!
And fred_smith, good to hear you're alive.
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: "Waiting for the Next Explosion", -JB
Not that I think it will be done by then, but I'm going to start work soon on a guide for security at public rituals. If it's not too long, I was thinking of submitting it to OL.
Length is something that can be worked with. chirael
's article in the last issue was superlong-crazy and it made it in. And let's not forget the interviews that took up so much space in recent issues.
That's true, his article WAS excessive. Took me three days to finish (or maybe minutes). I was actually planning on discussing that with him tonight.

I strongly suspect that it only happened because we were running low on otherwise good content.
And judging by the reaction so far, I'd rather it not
have made it in. It was written late last year to explain some of the things going through my head when I was deciding whether to run for Scribe (now Secretary).
When it hadn't been published by May, I guess I just assumed it was deemed "not really suitable for OL" and silently discarded, which would really have been for the better.
I certainly didn't expect it to pop up over a year later, when so much of it is outdated! Oh well, at least one person
found it interesting and not so offensive. Of course, coming from "incendiary Dan" I'm not sure that's exactly a compliment ;)
Several of the things I submitted about a year ago also have made it into recent editions of OL. . . I strongly suspect that it's due to a lack of submissions (not even a lack of "good" submissions)

I've got some notes on my daily runic meditation that I want to work up into an article. There shouldn't be a problem with me writing the article before then.
Good, that'll be excellent, I think. And sounds like something that I could use for some DP work as recommended reading.
Psst, I agree that you should do this so that I can start doing them!

Heheh...I'll get right on it then :-)
Good. Festival reviews help get people to come to them.
As for my work, well, that's a matter of opinion :)
I hope to make it there. Been trying to. I couldn't afford the air fare this year.
Hehe. Strange to be among that crew :)
Wait, a good lunch at the Union...?
You can't even get spicy chicken sandwiches there. ;P
Dinner didn't complain, and neither will I.
I need to do a "So Long and Thanks for All the Fish" article for the end of my [extended] term as Precepter and introduce the new Preceptor. Geez, I will probably wind up writing that on Xmas so I can make the 12/21 deadline. (I have nothing else to do that day.)
That would be a good thing to write, as it would at least give the new Preceptor a place to start.
If indeed one gets found before then :)

My work is crap, anyway!
Absolutely! I'm so sick of seeing everyone praise your work. Your work is absolute crap! Thank gods someone finally had the courage to say it!
(And I hope you can see the smirk on my face as I type all of this ;)
*grins* Good to see we're all on the same page :)
