Hey everybody, I am sorry about the lack of posts these past few days but I have been working hard on my encyclopedia article.  Last night I wrote about four hundred words.  Tonight I am going to finish the draft before heading off to the Apple store for a One to One session on my Mac Air.  Tomorrow I will put the final touches on the piece and then send off to the editor Friday.  Encyclopedia articles are interesting because every word must count within the tight framework of the assignment.  The Hayfoot noticed something awhile back that I never realized: I always listen to reggae when I write.  Last night it was Black Uhuru’s Red and several cds of the greatest reggae group of them all, Culture.  I think the reason I listen to reggae while writing is because it talks about contemporary problems whose roots lie in historical events.
