: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 12 of Wedge’s Gamble wherein whyyyyy doihafta.
: If you don’t I do. And I donwanna.
: Fair. More than fair.
In personal news, this is the week before the “reading rehearsal,” which is the first rehearsal of a season, which means that it’s the week for the Librarian to Edit And Publish All the Things, which means that I’m already punchy.
: Meantime, I survived one of the bigger aspects of my professional year, and July is *knocks wood* looking calmer.
That said, if you’re in Boston this weekend, while I won’t be attending Readercon in full, I will be at the launch party for Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone’s new book, This Is How You Lose the Time War, on Saturday.
: Let’s get this show on the road!
: Welcome back, audience and friends! It’s the Fifth of July, which means we’ve survived the fireworks here in the US, and to the rest of you, you survived Thursday. Z is around here somewhere, but also running around in prep for a concert…
: https://wmgso.org/events! And also in prep for starting next season’s rehearsals! Which means that I’m neck-deep in revisions and reviews and proofreading! Whee!
: So here we are diving into Chapter 11 of Wedge’s Gamble. And without further ado…
: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 10 of Wedge’s Gamble, wherein… ouch.
In our side of things, oh hey why are we only ten days out from a concert again, didn’t that, like, just happen. But anyway: Small Ensemble Showcase, July 7th, 4 pm. Germantown, wmgso.org/events/.
: Things are quieter up here. I had a cold this week that knocked me on my ass Monday, but I’m mostly recovered now. Looking forward to the holiday next week….
: Welcome back, honored guests, for Yet Another Briefing Scene! This time it’s the inverse: now that we have the mission, Wedge and the Rogues are going to decide how to carry it out.
: The What has been decided, now’s the time to figure out the How. Which is exactly where I am with preparing the repertoire for Fall 2019.
: Welcome back, readership! It’s Chapter 8 of Wedge’s Gamble, wherein we get another briefing scene. I feel there are some pacing issues here–this scene probably could have been worked into the previous one, or indeed the next. But hey.
: Probably, although then we’d have a very extended meeting scene and then I’d be All The Unhappy.
: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 7 of Wedge’s Gamble, wherein couldn’t we have done this over e-mail?
: Ysanne Isard is not Alison Green.
: On the personal side of things, in the last two weeks I completed two small ensemble arrangements, and in fact just finished writing lyrics for one yesterday. We started rehearsing both of them this past Monday, although the one that requires lyrics doesn’t have the singer chosen yet, so the timing still works out. Hey don’t judge me.
: Over here things are quieter for the moment.
For the moment.
: Welcome back! This week we’re finishing off a brief conversation, and then it’s on to Action Scene, Mark I’ve Lost Count.
: This week, this fiiiiiiinalllllllllllllyyyyyy happened:
I’ve also had other stuff happen but I forget because. That.
