I’m sitting at the Café in the Barnes & Noble in the Citicorp Building in NYC. I came for a little inspiration. It is filled with writers and readers sipping coffee and staring out the window at the rain. I love being here, surrounded by stacks of books and people who love them.
When I arrived, the café was full so I went to the second floor to the biography section to take a gander at my book on the shelf. It’s so exciting to know that it’s here, to know that several stores in Manhattan have it on the shelf. I wonder if that will ever get old. I certainly hope not.
I came here to work on my novel, but my head is so full I decided I make use of the time here to organize my thoughts. Multitasking has been a chore over these last few months and it helps to just lay it all out. These are the main events:
The novel – The working title is Thanksgiving.
The collaboration project – It’s a big exciting secret book proposal.
The big pitch – I’m working on the idea of making I Thought I Grew Up a film or television series.
The Examiner – I’m going to be a regular contributor talking about Cheap Eats.
Of course, on top of that I’m looking for the best and last great love of my life.
Tomorrow I have a date. Tomorrow I have a date with someone who was in I Thought I Grew Up. Tomorrow he will find out. And so, I am distracted.
I hope tomorrow is a good hair day.
