It took every bit of courage I had, but I read at critique tonight. It’s been months since I’ve done it and it wasn’t easy. It was my highly secretive new project. Now if my editor will love it as much as the people in the room tonight, it’s all good. :-)
I had dinner alone at a restaurant. Do you ever do that? It’s been a while. I usually eat in my car on the way to somewhere or on the way home, but I never go sit anywhere any more. It was weird, but good in a way. You always feel like everyone is watching you and wondering, “poor, lonely slob, she doesn’t have any friends.” But tonight I got to thinking, what if they are wondering… “Hmmm, she’s wearing a wedding ring, and she has papers with her. She must be someone important. She probably needed some alone time. Man, I wish I could have some alone time.” My ego likes the second scenario better.
Okay, so it’s late and I have to go… I hope you are all well.
