I’m still in the States (hence the very sporadic Twitter updates and blog posts).
Since my last post, I went to NYC and met Agent. She was delightful, witty and absolutely wonderful, just as I imagined. :) I enjoyed our time together, and the meeting got me even more pumped up about my next project.
The next day, Hero Material and I hit MoMA. I know many people love modern art, but I decided it’s not for me after the visit. I still don’t get it, and I don’t think I ever will.
After our MoMA tour, we went to MA to see Hero Material’s extended family. They’re lovely people, and their farm house was really cool. (I’ve never been at an American farm before.) They raise Black Angus, totally organic and grass-fed, and the cows looked so content, ambling around their emerald green fields. While in MA, I also got to meet Bethany, a member of my former crit group. I told her that next year’s RWA is in NYC, so she should go if she finishes her ms by June. NY is so close to where she is. (I’d love to go to RWA next year — if I can — as well…)
Right now I’m in NH, surrounded by tall trees that love to dance with the wind. I’ve never been up in northern New England before, and I love the natural surroundings and cool summer. And of course, there’s the oddity of my being the minority again. ;)
Hero Material and I are heading back to Virginia early next week for dinner with friends and so on. And I’m still not done with shopping.
How’s everyone’s summer? :)
