HE WROTE: Yeah, yeah,
Ok, Jenny's posted four times in a row. And I'm sure she's just waiting to tell me about it.
But I've been busy. Writing and rewriting the end of Agnes while Jenny has been catting around finishing other books.
Ref Agnes: We cut the third POV character, Xavier. Well, not the character, but his POV. So we only have either Agnes’ or Shane’s POV. He had a neat POV and I enjoyed writing him, but as Jenny pointed out, he didn’t have enough arc to support the POV.
Looks like I’ll be going with Jenny to Australia and New Zealand in August 2007. The two countries will never be the same.
We received good news on DON’T LOOK DOWN the other day. The hardcover sold pretty well, considering the collaboration was a new thing. So thank you all.
I'm teaching my retreat now. Which is very tiring because I have to think about seven different books. I've got a couple of whackos from the Atlanta area, Dianna Love Snell and Ann Oortman who tried to get me drunk tonight in the bar, but their plan failed miserably when Lisa said "We must write tonight". So. Nice try. Although I have had some of my retreat groups start drinking heavily-- in the room-- before noon. I have no clue why.
And reference the picture: Jenny said: "Look, she needs help!" And I was ready to leap into action. But, alas, it was a false alarm. Jenny messes with me all the time like that. Living The Dream. LTD. BTW: Jenny hit me again during a video interview in Ohio. Just saying.
Surrey was great. Always wonderful to see Don and Carol McQuinn. And Andy Cohen who used his blackberry or whatever it was in to check what the legal age of consent in Canada was, but I think Jenny's already posted on this. And we had the dancing chicken, which we don't want to get into.
So we're STILL rewriting Agnes. Jenny's cutting the heck out of Act One and now rewriting Act Four which needs work. And work we will.
Right. Yep. On our shield or with it.
