Yes I have been very sick. Over 2 weeks to be exact. You know it's bad when you have to cancel a Disneyland trip! Woe on to me. What was up with a week of winter here in Cali? in June? I mean really! I watched my tomatoes like a hawk, rain, hail, wind, over a hundred degree fever; who cares. I want to eat tomatoes from my garden this year-it's an obsession!
The good news is that being stuck at home I was able to write write and write. OK, I admit some of the stuff made absolutley no sense at all. I decided to stop writing if my temperature is over 99.6- my brain melts after that. I should have kept some of the paragraphs I erased-talk about warped, bizarre, hahahahhh......
What's strange? to have The Pulse so close to completion. Part of me doesn't want to reach the end. I can't even explain why because I have the third and last installment to write after that. I guess I'm a little strange, but aren't we all?
Don't worry-if all goes well, by July....
The pulse will be going through a series of editing- I hate editing by the way-just thought you should know. But...it really does make the book so much better-even I can admit to that.
A totally random question: Am I the only one who couldn't stand the movie Eat Pray Love? I couldn't take it? I rarely turn a movie off but I did this one. I had no sympathy for that selfish shallow woman. (writer-I hate when they show us like that) I felt that it was a very sad attempt of trying to redo Under The Tuscan Sun which I absolutely love love love. Highly recommended!
Least but not last: Come see me read from Pulse of Heroes on Tuesday Evening, June 21st- The Summer Solstice!!! at Cafe Aqus in Petaluma CA (it's more a pub/restaurant! all ages though-lovely)
This will be my first public reading and I'm sure I'll develop a latent stutter just because I'm nervous about reading out loud in front of everyone.
Maybe I should have the whole thing video taped and later they can do a docudrama about the latent stuttering author who overcame her fear-you never know, an Oscar might be waiting somewhere for me....
I will announce the event with more details a little later in the month!
