Deerless and cheerless

November 22, 2009

Well, no, I’m not cheerless really.  I promise to make sure I know what the antler restrictions are in the county I’m in next time.  Besides, maybe someone else got that buck, someone who needs the meat.  I was planning on donating it, so that would cut out the middleman.

I did see a bluebird this morning, always a treat.  They don’t come into the city, not so far as I live.  Raccoons, possums, the occasional fox, hawks and owls, those we see.  I understand turkey vultures roost on the office buildings in Clayton now.  No word on whether they spent a lot of time circling the local Bear Stearns or Lehman Bros. offices last fall.

I followed my wife around a social function last night, the anniversary gala for the Missouri Coalition for the Environment.  Wearing formal Highland dress is a great conversation starter.  Some of the conversations don’t even end up with “what do you wear under the kilt?”

After chatting with my best friend, I decided I can start sketching out bits of the next Faerie Noir novel (I like “The Fey and The Clay” as a series title) without actually going to Ireland.  I could even do a synopsis in advance, perhaps, now that I have two under my belt I can refer to.  There’s a chance the product might even resemble said synopsis.  I did a rigid outline for one novel, and it seemed to work all right.  Doing for the first two faerie stories didn’t work for me, though.  I wanted more of a sense of discovery as I figured out what the recurring characters are like.

I need to do something writing-wise, as opposed to revising-wise, certainly.  I live in fear of seizing up if I go too long.  Perhaps this blog could help ease the anxiety.  Hmm.  I’ll think about that.
