Nathaniel is a hundred-million dollar research project, but he has no clue. He believes he is just an average sixteen-year-old, with below-average grades, until he finds himself trapped between warring high-tech weapons researchers. When he acquires a cell-phone that can make objects vanish and re-appear with a simple text, Nathaniel finally begins to question who he is, and what he's capable of.
As of today, it's fully plotted and outlined, and I have the first few pages down to capture the voice and style and whatnot. And I'm pretty excited about it. So let us not dwell on the negative. Instead, let me share a bit of last weekend's 'therapy' -- the 2010 Michigan Irish Music Festival. Me and a kilt, and my girly-girls and some mind-blowing Irish music (and some beers).
In honor of the Irish Music festival, Cindy and I recorded this video of us playing our fairly new instruments that we've just begun to learn this summer (in other words, go easy on us). I have other versions of these tunes in which we make fewer mistakes, but I find it extremely cute when Cindy messes up and turns those sheepish eyes to mine -- makes my heart all sunny and warm.
