Script Frenzy is in full swing. Can I knock out 667 words before midnight tonight? I think I can. That's something like three and a half pages. I'm "pants"ing it, as writers say, meaning I have a concept but no outline. I've got a beginning and an end, and the middle will be the exciting part. I apologize if, for the next month, it seems as though I should change this journal's name to scriptitans (which is a real Latin word meaning "writing eagerly and often"). I think we'll be okay though. I can't tell you what I'm writing except to say it's a play. Other than that, it's a secret. Sshhhh! (If you really care to know about it, you can e-mail me, and I'll decide whether to let you into my elite cadre of people who know. Right now I think that cadre includes Little Willow and no one else.)

I shall not be neglecting my readerly duties. Work is (at last) winding down. Unemployment during the summer months is a sad thing, but if you budget for it, it can be awesome.

Things to Come:
A Thinking Blogger Award post (Thanks, Kelly!)
Reviews of the books on my Read in 2007 list
Commentary on other kidlit stuff, depending on what I find in my inbox and publications
My 48 Hour Book Challenge Posts
