A room of one's own

So here's what I did today. I rented myself some office space. Sara said I could rent right next door to her AND I PROMISE NOT TO BUG HER. Sort of. She in turn promises NOT TO LET ME HAVE THE WI-FI PASSWORD to the chez so I will write when I'm there instead of getting online and reading crap about Brad and Angelina.

Anyway. I'm excited. I have a room here at the house, but I am too easily diverted by the jobs I have when I'm home. I love being able to open a door, step inside an office . . . and walk inside my own head. I rented an office to finish my first book CAL CAMERON (written shortly after man discovered fire). I also rented an office to finish up CHARLOTTE'S ROSE. Hopefully, I can be productive.

On the eating front: it was just hog American roadside diner heaven yesterday. If you haven't been to Maddox, go. It's a slice of history on highway 89. I had a filet mignon done medium rare, a baked potato soaked in butter and sour cream, corn on the cob and cornbread with raspberry butter. And because I was feeling fancy, I started it all off with a seafood cocktail.

I love America.

That is all.

Everything about this post pleases me:

1. your office space.
2. your menu.
3. especially the seafood cocktail.

Well played, Ms. Cannon. Well played.

Where do you fit all that food you tiny thing?

Props to Lisa B.'s comment. I think its sort of brill.

I love the book and love the idea. Cobwebs I never cared about are always an urgent problem if I have a deadline. And no wifi, even better. You'll just have to go out into the street to talk to people.

I read Cal Cameron to my seventh graders shortly after you published it. I loved it; they loved it; and then we returned to our science project: inventing the wheel.

PS Sometimes I sign in with my "educator's" blog and sometimes I use my personal blog, but I'm one in the same - a person you don't know! : )
