Well, Groundhog Day has come and gone. I am back in Atlanta safe and sound. Am in the middle of a couple of books and am doing the good deed of introducing friends and loved ones to other adventures in good reading.
Handed off my copy of "LIKE A CHARM: A Novel In Voices" to Miss Jeanne. Reading Harlan Coben's "Gone for Good" . Looking forward to seeing how he's going to resolve all the loose ends, etc. Then again, I am only up to the fourth third chapter. I enjoy the way Coben slices real life references in his writing... shows like 20/20, Court TV, things like that. Also the very subtle anger people expose each other to, not the big explosions that basically chew up the scenery and give no real complexity of purpose in the written scene. My experience is people gnawing their guts out when they're really upset. They internalize, growing tumors instead of brandishing firearms at Joe MacPunk ...
My writing/editing is slowly but surely catching up to the IMPOSSIBLE schedule I have -- along with others -- set for myself. Visited my relatives this weekend, getting our dad settled into an ALC. He just wants to go home, not able to grasp that the "home" he wants to go to is gone, baby, gone -- even if the structure were still available to him.
What was it Tennessee Williams said? "Time is the greatest distance between two places."
MEDIUM is on tonight. Looking forward to it, it's the fifth outing, it seems to have its legs under it pretty well now. And this one is a serial killer... ah, my favorite monster. Second only to Dracula, a different kind of serial killer.
Reading AHMM for March. Reading EQ for February. Trying desperately to keep all the plates in the air, juggling wildly, not dropping a one...
See you later.
