I will be handing in my next completed book to my publisher, Penguin, in a few days. Love to come to the end of the journey. I usually celebrate by treating myself to some item I've been wanting......a small antique type object or some special book. I remember going to McMillan Publishers, years ago, with my first finished book, "Max". It was quite a thrilling experience. Afterwards, I went on the crosstown bus, 59th Street in New York City, and told the person, a total stranger sitting next to me, what I had just experienced. "Max" came out a year later and was a big success....which really launched my book career.
Started a new painting....not certain I like it. I'll keep going until a decision can be made. It's difficult to know when to put down the brush and call it quits. When you come to the realization that, "there is hope but no chance" as Roger always says....it's time to move on.
