Went to the Shakespeare Tavern last night to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It was excellent, again. I think it was better this time than last. There were more off-the-cuff jokes, including what I assume was an honest oopsie by one of the actors who said “bugger” instead of “begger.” Much hilarity ensued. I laughed right out loud frequently and helplessly throughout. They got a standing “O” and well deserved it.
Learned that one of my Dragon*Con Daily Dragon staff is unable to make the convention this year, so had to do a mad scramble to fill his vacancy. It appears to be copacetic now. Got me a network person!
Watched Hobkin hunt, kill, and eat a big, black spider-person this morning. I was impressed. He actually ran after and caught the thing by himself. Poor spider-person, though.
Researched publishers to send queries to for the transitional chapter book that Henry Holt turned down. Aiming to send a batch of those out on Monday.
Otherwise, an exceedingly unproductive writing day.
I was surprised you didn’t list meditation as one of your interests. Hopefully, this may help. Tai Chi teachings suggest that you should keep your head raised as though it was being lifted by a string. Your spine should follow. For me, that and some other posture stuff has helped me with a similar pain. I tend to write novels instead of comments. Again, I gues it’s because I’m new. I’ll email you some more details.
“I was surprised you didn’t list meditation as one of your interests“
Well, to be honest, it’s not really an interest. It’s more like something I do when I can get the motivation up for it!
I’ve tried Tai Chi Che before and was unimpressed by it. I think I should try the Chuan style sometime, but I haven’t gotten around to it.

Sounds like you had a grand old time.
Re: Writing: 0. Living: priceless
Yes indeedy. Midsummer’s Night is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays, and the Tavern is an excellent, just fantastic venue for Bill’s works.
