In fact, I’m still catching up with myself! (That’s why this blog is late getting posted.)
I mostly wrote this weekend, completing chapters 11 and 12 of “The Bridegroom”, and I had a great time doing it, too. Sometimes, I wrote in the morning–sometimes in the evening–and sometimes very late, with the dogs snoring on the bed behind me.
Soon, I won’t be writing in my bedroom anymore–hallelujah–but in my spiffy new office downstairs. While I’m on tour for “The Rustler”, and if the flooring gods are favorably inclined, the space will be painted and a new vinyl floor laid. (Yes. Vinyl. I have DOGS. And, often, horse manure on my shoes. :))
I did a few artist trading cards, and received my first batch of trades in Saturday’s mail. (I keep them in a special notebook, and have one for my own cards, too.) What a kick it is to see other people’s work–so clever and innovative! I’m bringing some of my own cards on the road with me, and if you’re planning to attend a book-signing or other event, bring along a card of your own, and we’ll swap. (While supplies last.) The only ATC rule is that they have to be 2 1/2 by 3 1/2. (And this goes without saying, with a fine bunch of folks like you, but I’m going to say it anyway: no porn, no politics, and no hate.) Be sure to sign and date your card, and don’t be intimidated. I’m not nearly as good at art as I am at writing.
