I skipped the usual Safari Friday post this week 1) Because I was teaching five full days in 30+ degree temperatures. (What a week for a creative writing summer school!) 2) Because It was quite a shock to have to get up at 6am every morning 3) Because I commuted a total of 600 train miles in a week.
4) Because I had planned to write it in advance and just pop it in at the right time. And didn’t. Just like I planned to clean the oven and start a short story. 5) Because by Friday the sun had fried up all my words, rendered them down to one simple sentence that went something like: yes please I’d love a cold beer.
Sorry about the missing Safari Friday – hope it hasn’t spoiled your weekend…
I know, I know you didn’t notice but I thought I should just explain that normal service will be resumed next week. Probably.
