It Is Finished
Hey guys -- thanks for all the great comments on my You Don't Know Jack post. In strange news, the good doctor's deathmobile was scheduled to be sold on EBay tomorrow and then got yanked for "policy" reasons. (See comment on my Hemlock post.) Interesting. In the good news category, I've pretty much finished You Are The Camera. Thanks for all the support over the past year. I realize that writing a book takes as long as it takes which is about twice the time you thought it would take. (conservative estimate -- in truth, it's probably three times the amount of time) Without you guys encouraging me, I might have given up the proverbial ghost. I think of Gloria Steinem saying that she likes having written, not writing itself. That's not entirely true for me, but I understand it. My tendency is a desperate desire to be finished a long time before I've worked out all the problems, a wish for the appearance of completion and wholeness that bears no relation to reality. I'm guessing I am the only person on the planet with this problem, but if not, feel free to share. I'm working on an acknowledgements section so I'll post that soon. As for tonight, Nurse Jackie continues! I'll be back tomorrow with more!
