In which I've fried my voice (and my brain), so here are some pictures
You maybe didn't know that some librarians have an annual equivalent of "Hell Week."
In the next ten days, I'm scheduled to present booktalks to promote summer reading in 5 schools. I also get to drive the bookmobile one morning (yay!) and spend an entire afternoon conducting a "library scavenger hunt" at a middle school.
Don't get me wrong: I love this part of my job. It's probably the most fun I have at work all year.
It's not like talking to friends for 10 hours. It's more like being onstage in front of an audience for that length of time.
It's hard on my voice, and it sucks up all the extra "go-juice" in my brain.
My brain, as anyone will tell you, has a LOT of "go-juice." But the supply isn't unlimited.
That's why this blog post is pretty much just pictures from recent training rides.
The weather has been medium-to-good,
the horses have been full of happy energy,
and the trails are growing in greener every day.
Just so you know: even during Hell Week
my life is Good.
p.s. my Other Book now has an official release date: July 1st, 2013. Yippeeeeeee! If you want a preview, there's a list of chapter titles HERE. I know chapter titles aren't usually very amusing, but we think ours are pretty funny.
p.p.s. Yes, I'm still working on another horse book. This one is a novel, and it's about endurance and magic. Watch for it before Xmas this year.
