Welcome to the very first entry in my very first blog. My intention is to post an entry at least once a week, so we’ll see how that goes. The BOOK comes out in 24 days and I’m so excited about it I can barely sit still. Six months ago, June 3rd seemed like it was an eternity away, now I’m counting the time in days. Not quite sure how that happened.
So what I’m thinking about right now is this: how in the heck do you work on a second book when your first one is coming out? Holy cow. I’m fairly easily distracted as it is (by dogs walking by the café where I’m writing, by emails from friends, by the documentary on pandas that was playing on the TV at the café—apparently it’s pretty hard to get them to breed in captivity), so the fact that my book is coming out in 26 days and all sorts of people I don’t even know are writing about what they do and do not like about it is straining what control I have over my concentration. I guess it really is time to cut myself off from wireless connections.
But actually, the second book is in that really fun stage when there are still about a million different possibilities of what could happen to whom and when. I’ll have to start closing some of those doors soon, but for now I still get to play in the world of endless options.
Thanks for checking out my blog. More to come soon. Seems like writing a blog is a GREAT distraction from writing. . .
