Getting Off My Ass! Madness Begins…Again!

“I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done.” ~ Steven Wright

A little over four years ago (HOLY SH!T, it’s been 4 years!) I began with my Madness blog’s opening line: “They say insanity is the spice of life, right?  Got it – chock full, in fact…”  Yup, it’s been a bit over four full years of snippets with my living cast of characters from my loveable, yet totally neurotic Italian family from NJ. I like to say, INSANITY WITH A SIDE OF SAUCE!

What I’ve decided to do now is begin mapping out the Madness book. A book, the REAL KIND you can actually turn the pages of — the book I began BEFORE this blog ever even existed. I guess 2014 is the year to get off my ASS and write my story before another 50 months pass me and me ass right on by, and I’ll still be without my damned hardcover!

Here’s my game plan: I’m going to relive a few snippets from my beloved old posts from time to time, and I’ll let you in on the status of my manuscript. Ok, just the word manuscript is making me want to reach for a swig of bourbon (the really good stuff)! Ok, one page at a time, one page at a time.

So check out a post along the sidebar if you have a minute, and leave a comment. A blog post without a comment is like that island of misfit toys – a lonely place, and you feel like a loser like some of those toys (even though they were by far the BEST toys of course).

GRAZIE!
