The next step

September 2, 2009

Y’all know how I feel when I get a big thick envelope in the mail! I just got one plopped into my lap!

It’s the copy edited version of the still untitled Frank Lucas memoir.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a crazed nutcase lately. Completely consumed by my edits.

I haven’t been eating or sleeping. Just writing, re-writing, editing, tweeting and tumbling.

Quite honestly I feel like I’m losing it.

This is probably good for me to switch gears and focus on another project for a minute.

apologies to all my dear readers ahead of time for my random obsessive tweeting and social media-ing.

I’ll be back to normal, soon. I hope.
