Something about that “nothin’ to do/nowhere to go-o” line keeps ringing in my head. And it’s true!
I’ve just submitted my final grades. I also finished the final edits on an essay that will be published in an anthology last week, so I don’t have any outstanding deadlines at this point–no books or manuscripts to review, no nothin’ I owe anyone else. I’ve got a revise and resubmit from a journal that I should revisit soon, but other than that, I’m looking forward to finishing my book and (even more exciting!) starting the research for book #3, which I’m thinking will be about fashion, technology, bodies, gender, and citizenship in the early U.S. Republic.
And why not? For my third book, I think I can write about whatevertheheck I want to write about.
What are you doing this summer?
