I turned in the book! I did! I don’t know what my editor will think of it, or how much work remains to be done, but it finally felt like a book. Like it could hold together. Like I had the bones in the right order, and it could walk, at last. Hopefully, Seven Stories Up will come out in 2013.
And I recorded the audio book for Bigger than a Bread Box, which was a terrific experience! I choked up a little at the end. Hard to imagine anyone else voicing that particular title.
With a clean house and a deadline met and the kids starting school in a few weeks? I get to fiddle with new ideas, and get my teeth cleaned, and cook dinner. I get to live as calmly as I ever seem to manage.
