My absolute favorite Olympic sport, and why there's no cable network devoted exclusively to it, I'll never understand.
But onto the announcement. My editor emailed me yesterday to ask if I wanted The Shade Of The Moon to come out in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014. Fall would require me to finish the rewrites by October, and Spring would give me until January to do same.
I emailed back to say the people who read my blog (i.e. you) are eager to read The Shade Of The Moon and would prefer the Fall date. My editor understood why that was so important to me, and agreed to get to work almost instantly, since I can't do the rewrites until she writes her notes suggesting what needs improvement.
What I didn't tell her was the only chance I have to test my No Complaining Resolution was if I had to do the rewrites almost immediately, since by December, I will undoubtedly have slipped into my whining ways, because I won't have had anything much to complain about between now and then to put my No Complaining Resolution to the test.
Yes, people who read my blog (i.e. you). I used you (i.e. you).
Hmm. This is now an announcement and a confession. Two for the price of zero (thank you, Blogspot*, for this gift of free space).
So The Shade Of The Moon will be published a little over a year from now. Let's see how much complaining I don't do between now and then!
*Blogspot's very own spellcheck doesn't think Blogspot is a word. It offered me as an alternative "Bloodsport." I'll let you come up with the jokes about that while I watch trampoline.
ETA: Scooter isn't nearly as interested in the Olympics as I am!
