Yeah, it’s been one of those weeks.
I've visited a dozen schools, put 800 miles on Little Blue (aka: the Hyundai), been out of bed early every morning and back to bed late every night, skipped the gym, have too much blood in my caffeine supply, lived on candy bars and carrot sticks, ate a sandwich-shape block of grease for lunch today - now I just want a blankie and a nap. [insert thumb-sucking SFX]
In other words, a GREAT week!
Several librarians got copies of either “The League of Delphi” or “Seti’s Charm” for their readers. One sent me a message today saying that 4 of her kids have already read “The League of Delphi” (she got the book Tuesday), loved it and are dying to read books II & III ASAP. That's more troops joining the Reading Rabble! If this mob every gets organized, we'll be a force to recon with. [insert demands here]
Also, librarians are generally cool and nice and smart and I love spending time with them. So even when my day job gets in the way of my writing (did I mention no creative writing this week? thumbs down! :b [insert raspberry SFX]) I’m still a pretty happy guy.
Gotta get back to work now, because I have loads of ideas that need to be turned into books.
If you want to see this dazed, crazed, and exhausted face smile, get some of my books, share this post, or just talk about how weird writers are (using above photo as Fig. 1A).
