I know, I know, if you’re checking the time clock on this post, you’ll see that Wednesday’s child is about 30 minutes past midnight, which means my post is late as hell. Instead of Wednesday’s child, I feel more like Wednesday Adams…except she’d probably smell better than I do at the moment!
I JUST did get into a hotel room after driving 18 hours today, so my butt’s numb and my fingers aren’t being very cooperative right now.
As I was pulling into the overpriced parking lot, here at the Madison Concourse Hotel, I thought about what I might post here tonight. Of course, with a brain deprived of all nutrients save for potatoe chips and bottle water most of the day, not much in the way of intellectual stimuli was available, but this did come to mind…
One of the most common pieces of advice a beginning author receives is; Write what you know. So that’s what I’m going to post here tonight…things I know..
–There are 1082.04 miles between Lafayette, La. and Madison Wisconsin
–That 987.5 of those miles are under construction.
–That every women’s public bathroom between Jackson, Ms. and Chicago, Il. has pee droplets on their toilet seats.
–That my bladder and the fuel gauge on my Pathfinder operate in reverse tandem. When one is empty, the other’s full.
–That my Pathfinder has just proven it can operate just fine on a oil change every twenty thousand miles
–That’s there’s a nice looking police officer in Memphis, Tn. who’s willing to trade an author a warning (instead of a ticket) for an autographed book.
–That Spicy V-8 and DingDongs DON”T go well together.
–That my vehicle, at this moment, should be condemed by the board of health.
–That the female cashier, sporting black and blonde hair, at the Pilot Truck Stop in Bloomington, Il. has the hots for Meryl Streep
–That all day I recorded, on a tape recorder, chapters for a manuscript that’s due Dec. 15th, and I can hardly make out any damn thing I said.
–That by tomorrow, this hotel will be fillied with Fantasy fans from all over the world, and I wrote psychological suspense.
–That I’m getting delirious and need serious sleep before the cyber censor gods blow up my computer!
–Night all 🙂
