My alarm went off at 3:30 a.m. Boise time, but it was 5:30 here in Indiana (Eastern time). The media escort will pick me up at the hotel in about 30 minutes. I’m dressed and primped and painted and ready for the TV interview. This one is a live one hour show and I was told my bit will be about 10 minutes. So I’ve been asking the Lord that those 10 minutes will be fruitful, that the right people will be listening.
It will be a long day ahead of me. After the show, there is the drive back to Chicago (took about 3 1/2 hours yesterday to drive here). But my flight isn’t until 8:30 p.m. (Central ). I may be dropped off at the Art Institute to kill some time rather than just hanging around the airport all day. Then again, I may ask to be taken straight to the airport so I can work. Thoughts are still churning with this new book idea.
I will be so glad to get home again. These interview trips have been wonderful experiences, and I pray that God will use them to help others and, of course, to get my books into the hands of more readers. Because like it or not, sales matter, and the market is tough.
Oh, today I will get to see Notre Dame. (Is that spelled right?) A person would have to be totally unconscious to not know something about this university. Fighting Irish, right? So this will be a treat. I’ll try to remember to use my new cell phone that has a camera to snap a few pix.
Time to shut down the computer and pack up.
