Another encounter with my nemesis.
N: Congratulations, Laura.
N: Now get that all-American novel going.
(Yeah, he actually said all-American. And it wasn’t exactly espirit d’escalier, because I instantly thought, but did not say, “Do you mean the Great American novel? Because if you’re going to throw cliches around, you might as well get them right.”)
The blog has been quiet because I haven’t actually been doing any book-related events, other than media. Yesterday’s photo shoot for the Baltimore Sun was particularly interesting, as my cold has staged a spectacular comeback and just holding my head up was almost more than I could bear. Spent the afternoon drifting in and out of sleep, lulled by the dulcet voices of the girls in ANTM, Cycle 7.
