I’m postponing my appointment for a color and a cut to work on the new chapter. My hair, while definitely not fabulous, is…passable. (And let’s face it, it’s never really fabulous.)
With “Tate”, the good news just keeps on coming. Last week it was #5 on the New York Times bestseller list, reason aplenty to celebrate, but I learned yesterday that it has jumped to #3!!! YES! (Thank you, thank you, thank you.)
Alas, there is no time for any laurel-resting–and I’m not cracking the bottle of bubbly Harlequin sent until “Austin” is finished.
What’s next? After the bubbly, anyway? I’ll be taking that trip to Barcelona with my sister, Sally. Soaking up some Spanish culture, not to mention food and wine. Laughing with my sister, taking the train to Portugal and to the South of France….shopping, of course…snapping a million photos…and doing some kind of art work. I’ve been knitting (badly) and now I’m crocheting (not quite SO badly) and I have yarn and a hook for a lovely afgan. I crocheted several rows, but it came out lumpy, so I pulled out the stitches and rewound the yarn and I will tackle it again when the book is finished.
There’s a philosophical insight in there, but frankly I don’t have time to pursue it.
I have a book to write.
