Charging computer– I mean camera for SWCW event and I can’t wait for all the content. A little will be for the mmc site, but 98% of what I gather, whether visually or for note will be for the startup. Producers, interviews, pourings, the crowd. In fact, this is a mission for the startup. Dad, too, is armed with a camera. Everything wine… to BE, SHOW, and SHARE everything wine is the aim for today. 7:44, Dad set to be here at 10 precisely. Coffee first for us both then out to Westside Road. Tickets printed yesterday. All a go. Feel like Dad before one of his flights, walking around the plane then going up those stairs turning left into the cockpit, going through the checklist maybe having a brief meeting with my co-pilot. Except with this flight we’re both captains.
8AM, not thinking about anything but the startup, and what it needs—just wine and wine content. But I get away from the word “content” as that’s too broad, too general and too easy, the bland cracker-type wording that I loathe.. so….. Wine Stories, visuals and families; stories and characters that can be consumed and sought-after, something luring if you know my meaning.
A sense of competition entraps me as I know other writers and bloggers will be there. What separates me, not so much make me the better writer, is my anchoring in the Literary. I will be more with my notebook out than my phone, or even camera. I plan to imbue myself in the event and the stories I encounter, new and familiar. Can’t wait for it to start, this mission with Dad and I but I know once it has started I won’t want it to end. So.. that’s where the writer is, and yet another reason I’m fr contrasted to the other “writers” of the event.
