Can’t Stop the Muse-ic

It doesn’t mean much to y’all, but I’ve finished the ELA coordinator manual. Now those 28 pages are in the hands of others, and I wait for suggestions for revision, not unlike publishing.

I *could* begin the next step at work, prep for fall semester. That looks like a schedule and syllabi for two Elements of Writing class. Easy peasy.

Gotta have that carrot, though. I’ll be happy to start that, but after I give myself a little reward for being so diligent. What, may you ask? Food? God forbid! After this summer’s travel, not the way to longterm health. Sleep? Even in academia, sleeping on the job gets you the big ole frownie face. Yeah, I know you saw your almost retired 5th grade teacher do it. I do, but trust me.

Sooooo…… one of my new favorite sites:

The Brookfield Zoo, where Uncle Leo works.
I also spent my small break boning up on Hercules 12 Labors.

And…wait for it!…..drumroll…..eight days early….

the Herc-o-meter!!!

Yes, I’ve begun Hulk Hercules: Professional Wrestler for Cats Curious Press. It’ll be 1230 words a day to make my first draft count by October 1st, but if I can stack a little up in advance, I’s one smart cookie.

Hope you are all having great days!
