ROW80

Check-in April 8, 2012 Tagged and Awarded and Still Magpied

Matt Hofferth tagged me in the Eleven Questions meme. That post will appear sometime in the next week, I hope. 🙂 And thank you, Matt, for giving me something non-academic to write!

Also, a little over a week ago, Shan Jeniah awarded me the Sunshine Award; I have begun writing the post to honor the award. Thank you, Shan and my apologies for the lateness of the thanks!

Today I have to finish writing a grant application that is due tomorrow.  I am hoping to get some time to go to New York City to do some research at the Pierpont Morgan Library.  I’ve been there once, and would love to go back, as it is a researcher’s dream.

I have continued to write the test mile since Wednesday, posting something other than a ROW80 check-in since December. Check it out here if you like.

I’ve also continued to be in complete magpie mode. While I have been busy in the day job, I’ve had to look into various projects for said day job, and, as I reported last Wednesday, I have become reacquainted with how much unknown medieval literature and wonderful forgotten stories there are out there.  I’ve started to feel a wave of excitement that I’ve not felt in a long time.

Happy holidays to those who celebrate; happy day to those who do not.  As always, go encourage the other ROWers here.

  1. Very cool. I’m glad you’re feeling excited again. Maybe that’ll translate into more nonacademic writing? Go with the flow 🙂
