It hit me. My book will be out in six months and I feel like crap. I learned about the kind of stamina it takes to promote a book. When I was promoting "Letters to Montgomery Clift" I got sick more times than I was used to because my body was breaking down from the effects of book promotion. I'd have to speak about my book a million times, each time trying to make it sound fresh and interesting. I shook a lot of hands--a major way germs are spread--and ate a lot of fast food.
I learned the importance of staying fit and healthy. In the last few months, doing edits and rewrites, my workout regimen became non existent.
Okay, here's to becoming fit again. I went back to kung fu last night and I did another 8 miles this morning.
