What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Where Did Scribe Go?

Ah, so good to be missed! I forgot to let my lovely online fans know (especially the ones that DO NOT POST AND ONLY GHOST) that I've got company this week! Rhu in person! One glorious week of nothing but talking shop, goading each other to write faster, and doing some exercises together. Okay, so I'm still having to work and she's down at the Folger's right now pouring over texts from the 1700's for this project that is going to make her rich and famous. Well famous anyway. Famous among people who read texts on Shakespeare. It was a real coup for her to get into the library seeing as the Folgers never lets in undergrads, but Dr. George somehow managed to convince them that Rhu is his Girl Friday and that he's not coming out here, he all ready traveled to England to do research and that was enough. Soooo, I get to host Rhu and spend some time with her and she gets to stay here for free (no comments about how costly in other ways it is to spend time with me thank you everyone else who knows me) and it's a win-win situation. Except, poor fans, I will not be posting as much here this week. I adore you all, however I belonged to Rhu long before you met me and to my old master this week I return.

I understand, have fun!

Hmmm... I have ghosters on my blog too.

I love my ghosters! For whatever reason I'll get e-mails from them but they won't post here. Maybe they're just really really shy?

Hey, are you guys shy? One of you I wouldn't say is at all, but the rest, is that why?

I promise that the writers that leave comments are nicer than I am! But I think you've all ready figured that out. ;)

When ready, say 'hi' or leave a link to your site, okay? Oh, and you know I don't mind people 'taking the mick' as long as it's done in good fun.

Pais Charos said...

I have ghosters that don't even do THAT! I'll talk to them on IM or something, and I'll say "Hey, I updated my blog!" And then they say, "Yeah, I know."

Meanies :P

everlastingscribe said...

Tsk Tsk Tsk. They should at least say 'hi' in an e-mail. The sillies!

Pais Charos said...

Well - my daddy does. But I have to tell him that I've updated it first :P

Kare Alethieas said...

A project on Shakespeare? And she has access to the Folger Shakespeare library? I am very much intrigued. I have a good number of their versions of Shakespeare's works.

I spotted your blog through Pais', who is a good friend of mine. Pardon the sudden intrusion.

everlastingscribe said...

No intrusion! I love meeting people through friends! Yeah, Her Rhuness is really a genius (don't tell her I said so) and working with her professor (who is also a genius when it comes to the Bard) and they are working on a book together, compiling thoughts and things on his folios. She's his research assistant, and really adores this field I've no doubt that she will make her mark on the scholarly areas with this.

She got a special exemption from the Folgers because she doesn't (yet) have her Masters or Doctorate and usually the folios are reserved for them to use and read. She needed a place to crash and thankfully I had a place to offer her. *YAY*


Now, she's back home and I'm sad.


Pais Charos said...

I'm sorry, Scribe ... you still have me hanging around, but sadly I'm taking a break from all my forums for a while. Right now I'm stuck with blogs, emails, and IMing :P

Remember those ghosters who don't post or email I was talking about? Kare's one of them. *runs from Kare*

In all seriousness, Kare's a VERY good friend of mine, like a younger sister to me :D *hugs Kare*

Eve said...

Boo! Thought I'd let ya know that I'm still alive and kickin'

Glad to see you are too :)

Kare Alethieas said...

I knew you were talking about me. :P Pais is one of my surrogate siblings; she knows that she can get away with teasing me. And she also knows I'll get back at her, too.

But, yes, I like to haunt blogs and such, so I may read them, I just don't always comment.

Now, to return to Greek.
