Low visibility

I'm still in the weeds. Still in my pajamas. Still mainlining coffee and hiding my phone so I don't answer it and lose my grasp on the narrative thread holding my new proposal together.

I'm reminding myself of the wise words of my law school friend Jon, who'd watch golf in his bathrobe all day while the rest of us studied for finals. "Things tend to get done," he'd say, "things tend to get done."

I got an extra hour Saturday night thanks to daylight savings time, which I promptly lost on Sunday morning when I gave in to the need to eat and shower. None of that wussy stuff today, though, not until I'm done...

I'm sure this book proposal is the one about how wonderful life has been since I came into your life. If you need personal details of my childhood, please let me know. I have about 30 pages typed up for you so far. I can get more if you need it.

But seriously, I wish you strong focus and even stronger coffee. I adore you and your unwashed life style. Not that there's anything WRONG with that...

You are quite hard core! I like that. And it sounds like your law school friend would have totally cracked me up.

I like Jon's philosophy! How did he end up doing on his finals?
