That’s a loaded question. What HAVEN’T I been up to? If you want the snarky version, I got trapped in @MayorEmanuel’s time warp continuum thingie. If you want the non-snarky version, I’ve been thinking.
You can start breathing again, thanks so much.
The part of Being A Writer that I don’t like, is that people ask you, what are you working on these days? And you have to come up with an answer that’s just a hair more respectable than sitting in my chair with an iPad in my lap and wondering what I should do next. Eventually you have to tell them what you’re writing, because you’re a Writer, and Write is a VERB.
I don’t know how anyone else manages to come up with stuff, but I take a good long time Thinking, and when I have a cogent thought? I type it up. It’s very simple.
So, I’ve been sitting here in my chair with an iPad in my lap, wondering what to do next, and also, I have been publishing another book.
I think I forgot to mention that. Go to http://norwegianknittingdesigns.com/ amd take a look. It’s up for presale, and I’m very proud of that. Vincent the Printer Guy (if you remember me, you must remember him) should bring me a proof tomorrow.
Then AFTER that book, which you should all buy because it’s a reprint of a FANTATIC vintage book that practically saved traditional knittingin Norway from the ragpile. AFTER that, I decided that what I should type up next is all of the thinking I’ve been doing.
My working title is The Knitting Way, and it will be a series of MEDITATIONS which will sound a whole lot more like meandering than anything formal, and the knitting that inspired them, or was inspired BY them.
Also, I think I might write a history of the yoked sweater.
You’ll notice the blog here is a shambles. I had a falling out with my hosting company when they refused to let me access my data anymore, because the emails to retrieve my hacked password were not coming to me. So I showed them. I moved. The DNS is still up in the air, as we speak, so in the next few days I’ll get things cleaned up here.
Follow me if you’re on Twitter. @terrishea. And I’m in Ravelry. terrishea. I’m fairly consistent in the use of my name.
Ok. So I’ve been thinking, oublishing, and knitting. And tweeting.
What have you been up to?
