I am 80% through with writing this book. The process started last April and I have been routinely getting up early and knocking off a few hours of work before the morning news on TV, and the dawn. It’s these hours that I love the most; the luxury and the reward of this life I lead.
I took October off from writing while I traveled to Pakistan and Azad Kashmir for relief work. The details are on the Kashmir Family Aid website.
Last night, and friend and I snarffed a couple of hotdogs at Costco (a silly routine) and then saw the movie Stranger than Fiction with Will Ferrell, Dustin Hoffman and Maggie Gyllengenhal. I think it could become a cult hit, with some profound undertones about the reality of things. Joe and the Vocano (Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan) was like that. Light but important.
Here is more from the book, from the first chapter. I will keep pounding away and look forward to being finished while at the same time relishing the process. -sc
