Cheers, folks! I’ve been remiss in not posting the ATX Notebookery project’s progress on the main Notebookery site! My apologies. Things have been a bit hectic. Nevertheless, we’ve been going strong, trying to get a new submission up each week on Wednesdays. It usually ends up being every other week, but Wednesday is the day! While the original Notebookery notebook is stuck in postal-limbo, come take a look at what’s going down in the Lone Star State. We’ve also set up a Facebook page for the project, if you’re into that kind of thing. Also, we’ve put together a Google Map that’s tracking our notebook’s progress through Austin. And that’s pretty much it, people. Come take a look at what we’ve got! Take care, all!
The ATX Notebookery Notebook LIVES!
After a few fits and starts, we’ve finally neared the completion of the notebook. It should enter circulation within the next week.
Check it out on the ATXNotebookery blog. I’ve posted links to a slideshow of the notebook construction process, so far.
Current notebook location: Austin, TX
Beautiful poem and drawing by Bernard. Absolutely beautiful. Here’s part of the e-mail he sent with it:
“Well, I got the notebook on Monday, and as I’ve been unconscionably busy with work, I decided I’d hunker down and add my piece quickly.
I really had no clue what to do, as all of the great ideas I’d had bouncing around in my brain decided to flee as soon as I had my hands on the notebook itself. That, and the talent already poured into this thing is intimidating. I’m glad I got in before the talent bar got raised too ridiculously high.
So, I adapted a poem I’d written a while back. Hope this is a good addition.”
It definitely did. Thank’s, Bern. He also included a pic of him with the notebook, but I’m going to save that for later on the week. This might be eluding to an interview.
