Alright, so the first new isn't so new.
The next round, yes, you heard correctly, the next 50 copies of my chapbook are currently waiting for me at the printer. I hand the very chatty Betty some money, she hands me poetry. And all is well with the world. Shortly thereafter, Amanda Earl &c. will have copies for sale at the Bywords store.
Betty kept saying that once the book was printed it would go for sewing. Is that more expensive than stapling?, I wondered. Printer lingo.
The second new thing is really just a new combination of things.
1 working typewriter +
.5 kitchen table =
many bits written while waiting for my food
We'll see how it goes. Lord knows the system I got going now has not seen me finishing my manuscript. I wrote a bit tonight while the rice was cooking, made some edits while the tofu fried and taped it to the wall to re-read while I ate. Maybe while my toast is toasting tomorrow morning I can re-type it and get things going proper.
