My glass is not half empty. It's so full that my cup might runneth over.
I have one more major event to work on this week, then I take some time off. Hopefully, I can get to do some really good writing. At this time, I'd been doing some good prepping. I've intereviewed a few specialists on blood disorders, a major part of my next novel.
It's frustrating because what I proposed to do in my novel the specialists said would never happen. So, now I'm considering other possibilites.
Other things I'd been doing for my literary life is prepping to interview the writer Armistead Maupin for the Aloud series at the Los Angeles Public Library on June 20.
Mr. Maupin is one of those writers I truly admire. I mean, one of the reasons I have a career is because he was a pioneer who paved the way. His Tales of the City series is one of those must-reads.
I got an e-mail from a friend alerting me that the Maupin event was sold out! Then I freaked because the auditorium must be able to sit some 300 people. Oy! I hope it all goes well.
