You guys, I HAVE NO TIME!!! NONE.
I’m currently critiquing 3 MSs and 1 picture book, writing new project “A”, and piecing together my own picture book. I’m making notes on ROSE TAINTED, and of course sorting out the #TalkFear project, all while talking to a tech wizard about new website. ALL THE WORDS, YOU GUYS. ALL. OF. THEM.
I’M GOING TO THE STATES. (At least, I’m 85% certain I am.) After many many hours, and many many painstaking chats, I’ve decided to give it a serious shot and fly to the US for BEA next year. For those who don’t know, I suffer from a chronic case of agoraphobia and getting beyond my drive without a ridiculous amount of ri-dic-u-lousness is super tough. But with the help of Rach, mum, dad and a BFF or two… I’m hoping to pull this thing off.
Currently, my dad has me out once a day for a walk… we managed a stretch of five days. It sort of went like this:
Sunday: Panic. Panic. Panic.
Monday: Panic. Panic. Panic.
Tuesday: Panic. Panic. Panic.
Wednesday: Huh. This is okay. Wobbly. But okay.
Thursday: Longer walk. Nerves. But still okay.
Friday: Missed due to unforeseen circumstances.
Saturday: Please see Sunday. Dead.
Missed one stupid day and I was right back to where I started. Blugh!! BUT… I’m not upset. In fact, I’m more determined than ever to make this thing happen.
As a very wise man once said…
I hope you’re all well and having a great weekend,
