I can hardly wait. The release of The Last Sin Eater on DVD is almost here. It will be available on May 15. I’ve got it in my Netflix queue, but I’ll also be ordering a copy from Amazon.com. (The link on the title will take you to the Amazon listing.)
Of course, I cannot afford to wish that May 15 was already here because that is my deadline, and this preparation to put my house on the market has put me waaaay behind. But I’ve had some pretty good writing days this week. Just not as good as they need to be to get me back on track. At least my head is back in the story, and the words are coming a little easier.
I’m currently listening to Bird by Bird, written and read by Anne Lamott. I’ve read the book a couple of times but it has been awhile since the last reading. Listening to it in Anne’s own voice, it’s even better. I’ve laughed aloud a lot as I’m driving down the street. If you are a writer and haven’t yet treated yourself to this book, do yourself a favor and get a copy. It is a treat not to be missed.
I read something awful about last night’s Idol result show. The audience stood and cheered when Sanjaya was voted off. The person reporting it has been in all the result audiences and says this hasn’t happened before. Now, while I thought Sanjaya needed to go home because he was out of his league, voice-wise, I wouldn’t cheer his departure. That’s just cruel. He’s a kid. If this is true, then I hope he was too upset to realize it. I hope most of those people were cheering because Lakisha was staying.
Well, that’s it for my this, that, and the other.
