Last Lizard Reading of Summer

Tomorrow I’ll be doing my last reading of The Literary Lizard for the summer at the Fort Walton Beach Public Library at 10:30 a.m. It’s been a busy summer.

Over the past two months Lit and I visited Children in Crisis, Niceville Public Library, Walton County Coastal Branch Library, Robert L. F. Sikes Public Library (aka Crestview Public Library) twice, and Mount Zion AME Church. For many of them, my friend Laura came and helped.

There’s also been a few Business of Creativity workshops mixed in there, one of which I’m teaching tonight at 6 p.m. back at the Walton County Coastal Branch Library followed by the 30A Songwriter Music and Coffee open mic.

That’s 7 Lizard readings, 2 adult workshops and 3 open mics in less than 2 months. If we count traveling, we can add 4 out-of-town trips as well. Then of course there was 1 computer fail while I was putting up 21 Radish episodes and 2 books.

No wonder I’m crazy!
