I had the weekend off, although there was a television interview Saturday morning and then a quick stop to sign stock at a local bookstore, the Ivy. But the rest of the weekend was wonderfully quiet, including some time in my office, paying bills and filing. I happened on the copy of my schedule that included all the events for this tour and counted 35, which didn’t include 3 things I’ve set up on my own. But I’m more than halfway through and, as of April 5th, have no events that require travel.
Today, I get to lead a semi-normal day — writing at Spoons, going to the gym, dinner at a favorite local joint. Granted, there are interviews on either side of the gym, and I’ll sign/talk at A Likely Story in Sykesville before going to dinner, but it’s still pretty normal and I am grateful for it. I did some important planning work on the book today, the kind of stuff that defies description (and invites boredom), but helps me immeasurably.
