Tomorrow is the first day of school here where I live; my wife's a schoolteacher. Last week things were pretty busy, especially since I had to lend some crucial elbow grease in moving some things into her classroom.
Friday was the first preseason scrimmage for the local football team, which meant we published annual back-to-school football edition. That came to a total of 30 pages. Although I'm not the sports editor, I do have responsibility of getting the Associated Press articles that were used in that section. Plus, that was just an overall big project for the production staff.
And the newspaper office — after 40 years in one location — moved this weekend to a new building.
So it's been a fairly busy time.
On the writing front, I got a request for a rewrite from an e-zine; and that's always a positive sign.
