What I'm Doing 9:
Summoning of the Muse by Dead Can Dance.
(I've posted this YouTube clip for the music rather than the images).
(This is from the album Wake . This group recommended by Andrew and Crystallyn. It's very addictive music - something that fascinates more each time I play it - the lead singer has a voice just like a bell);
What I'm reading:
Carry Me Down by M.J. Hyland
(seems to be a hybrid of Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha and the Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. Enjoying it so far. The writing is very accessible - which it has to be, I guess, since the narrator is an eleven year old boy. This was short-listed for the Man Booker so I have high expectations);
What I'm writing:
A final, final edit following suggestions from my 'reader' (Hodmandod Senior);
What I'm Wearing:
Pink striped linen trousers, white linen kaftan top, lavender cardigan and pink shoes
(which looks as dreadful as it sounds. I am feeling a bit cold - even though the sun did try shining briefly today);
What I watched last:
Snow Falling on Cedars
(which I loved and now want to read the book - but highly recommend the film);
What I'm dreaming about:
Starting my PhD in creative writing - now postponed to January (bit disappointed about this).
