I've been in the game long enough to know how it works. But still... I'm so anxious to know if Book One of the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries, 'Hoosier Dead Guy?' is to the editor's taste, if she thinks I'm on track. I've gone on to Book Two, 'Bowled Over', but I'd feel a whole lot better if I knew Book One was how the editor envisioned it.
And then I/we could get on to the fun stuff, like cover design and... sheesh... a publication date.
So, to distract myself from the agony of the wait, here is a list of random musings:
- Why do we always capitalize 'I', but not 'we' in writing; aren't 'we' more important than 'I'?
- Why does my desk always end up in the same disgraceful state no matter what resolutions I make to the contrary?
- How can someone as reasonably intelligent as I am (or pretend to be) love reality TV so much?
Until then, picture me counting paperclips and wondering why I have so many when I use, maybe, five a year. At this point, I have enough paperclips to last me until 2075.
