And we’re all gonna shine a light together

A post at the excellent Captain Awkward blog reminded me to get my shit together.  Work on novel progresses somewhat excellently — and I just purchased a laptop which will be dedicated to writing.  I imagine January will be a month full of coffee and editing.

My current music project is setting H.P. Lovecraft’s sonnet cycle Fungi From Yuggoth to music for various combinations of choir and piano.  8 done so far, out of 36.  You can read the sonnets at the link above, but I won’t be publishing any of the completed scores on here, as I’m hoping to keep them for something more, er, serious 😀

As I’m updating, I guess I should add: current classic novel in mid-read is Les Miserables, Victor Hugo’s masterpiece.  I’m dipping in and out, as it’s the kind of book that you don’t really read in a single sitting.  It’s also hugely immersive, so very easy to get back into when I do take the plunge.

But the reason for this post is the Captain Awkward post I mentioned above.  I’ve been feeling recently that my awesome parts have been somewhat squished by the demands on my time.  So am using this post as a call to arms for myself: don’t neglect your passions!  Direct energy to where it will be returned tenfold!  A thousandfold!

Speaking of which, had a great idea for a fantasy trilogy whack me upside the head on the train this morning.  Must set it to one side while I finish this WIP!  But it’s funny, sometimes ideas hit and I think, nah, been done before, or, nah, I’ll have a better idea before lunchtime.  But this one demanded to be remembered and worked on at some point in the future, so I’ll probably give in to it next year.

Hey ho.
