Juggling an Attitude Adjustment

September 17, 2007

I'm fried. I feel like I've been juggling flaming chainsaws. I calculated that in three days (last Saturday, Sunday and yesterday) I spent over 26 hours on book promotion.

In the last week I've conducted almost a dozen interviews. Attended "curriculum night" twice in the last two weeks, one for each kid, and started in on The Great Homework Nag, 2007-2008.

I've also organized two--yes, count them, two!--book proposals in the last week alone.

My attitude sucks. I'm annoyed and pissed off about the publishing industry and book promotion and so, lest I inflict all this negativity on you, I'm going to take a blog hiatus of at least a week, possibly longer, and concentrate on things that, uh, well, other things.

Swing by in a week, maybe I'll be back.

In the meantime, check out Eric Clapton and friends from the Crossroads Music Festival playing "Got To Get Better Tomorrow" here. Way cool.

If you were a girl, I'd send you cyberhugs. So, how's a cyber slap on the back? A cyber beer? Chin up, hope you feel better soon, all that ...

When I get in a knot, I always disappear to a movie theater on a weekday night, late show, when no one else is in the theater. Takes me outta my problems for a little while.

Have a better week!

Go somewhere quiet and soul-nourishing (even if it's only in your head) and forget about all this. I did and it helped.

See you when you feel better.
