"We're getting the band back together"

Monday, March 23, 2009


Strictly speaking, the band never actually broke up. We just only see each other maybe every six months for a spurt of practices before some late-night gig at Stasiu's, and such it is again. Our first practice of this spurt will be this Thursday, normally write night.

So I might miss a write night this week, and I'm okay with, because it will instead be a night of music and merriment and I get to have some beers!

Hopefully, I can squeeze in some writing time at some other point this week. I tried to do some freewriting this afternoon while Sam was playing happily on the rug with some new toys of his, but what I wrote--and it wasn't much--included the line of dialogue: "I'm not running anymore." When I saw that appear on the page, I rubbed my eyes, checked it again, then deleted the whole mess. Then I made some tea and sat on the couch to watch Sam play.

Aww I can just hear Sam telling the friends at school. "Yeah, my dad is in a band..." and the other kids going, "Cooooooool!"

Sounds therapeutic though!

Happy writing, playing, and fathering!
