Repost: Life is Boring

Aug 22: Life is Boring
Surprisingly so, considering I’m supposed to be stressing out over going back to class on Monday and trying to get my book ready to e-publish.

But all that happened today was a failed shopping expedition to buy tennis shoes (amazing that anyone can fail to buy tennis shoes, isn’t it?) and a lot of reading the book I have to have read by Monday. I’m still a little bit appalled that I need to read a whole book before the first class. It’s not that I dislike the book, I just dislike that I’m already having to read it. Especially since I wanted to spend this last week going over my own book and finishing up the Aeneid. (I don’t want to put anything in my “Further Reading” list in the Author’s Notes to my Trojan War novel that I haven’t read myself. So I have to get through the whole Aeneid before I can have the temerity even to self-publish. I’ve already read all the other works going on that list, naturally. But previously I’d only read the parts of the Aeneid that actually involved the Trojan War, and hadn’t bothered with the rest of it, because that wasn’t really what I was interested in.)

I’ve been thinking since last night’s post that my ideal option for the cover art is to pay someone a (very modest) fee to draw a cover image for me. Something based on that ancient krater (I think it was a krater, or maybe a kylix?) only maybe if they’re really good they could swap out the 5th century armor on the combatants for 12th century (B.C. of course!) armor. I’m thinking of going to the art department on campus and seeing if there’s a bulletin board for that kind of thing. I know I could go to various places online to find an artist, but if I find someone locally then I can pay them in cash, and there won’t be any doubts on either my end or their end, you know?

Anyway, I still have about eight pages left in the amount of reading I calculated I need to get through tonight, so I should probably get back to that. (Not like anyone other than me is reading this on-line diary anyway…)
