Writing and reading and books, books, books (and anything that might relate)

Come Fly with Velva Jean and Me!

Novelist John D. MacDonald once said, “If you would be thrilled by watching the galloping advance of a major glacier, you’d be ecstatic watching changes in publishing.”

I’d like to amend that just slightly to say if you would be thrilled by watching the galloping advance of a major glacier, you’d be ecstatic watching a writer working on a book.

Today is one of those days when the work is not terribly exciting, but it’s necessary. There is a lot of this kind of thing going on: researching and locating of film clips for the trailer, scripting the trailer, renewing library research materials, discussing various book matters with my agent, discussing website update plans with my boyfriend (who also happens to be my web programmer/designer), reading and making notes on the Hollywood book.

Because it is one of the less glamorous work days, I thought I would look ahead to next Friday, February 24, when I’ll be stepping away from my desk (!) and leaving the 1940s and all of the above matters behind for a day (!) and heading to San Diego for Adventures by the Book’s Velva Jean Learns to Fly Aviation Adventure.

Please join me! I promise it will be a good deal more exciting than watching glaciers.
