Hello friends, old and new. I have not been around for years, or maybe months but I am so happy to be back. And what a day to be back!! Tonight Carol and I are speaking at the Day-Riverside branch of the Salt Lake City Library at 7 pm. We hope some of you can come and make faces at us or throw tomatoes or peanuts or giant king-sized candy bars or even plane tickets to Hawaii. Please throw plane tickets at us. Please.
Also, Carol and I are nearing the end of a major revision on the book we’ve been working on. Yay!!! I hope so much this book makes its way into the world. It’s been a little bit of a difficult delivery–more difficult than we were expecting but I hope that means it will be worth it.
And finally, I hope you are having a wonderful writing day. I have not been doing a lot of writing myself (except for revision–lovely revision!), but I have been thinking about writing and daydreaming and eating ice cream and mopping the floor and telling kids to stop leaving honey nut Cheerios all over the house and swimming and chasing people and putting clothes in the washing machine and then letting them rot there for several hours and a whole bunch of other things. Which is actually kind of like writing in the long run.
