THE SLEEPING AUTHOR HAVING SLEPT SLEEPS ON...
10:25 pm and 82 degrees.
We have one full day of preparation. We are both writing...well to be honest, I am answering emails and Holly is sleeping.
I need to be the one sleeping as I have a live radio interview at 5 am tomorrow morning. But I am doing this instead.
Well Holly WAS sleeping but now she is writing.
It is possible for two authors to write in the same room without talking.
It's possible but very unlikely.
Tasks to do tomorrow:
1. Eat breakfast.
3. Ask Holly to get up.
4. Go on a walk.
5. Ask Holly to go on a walk too.
6. Make sure Holly does not go back to sleep.
7.Wake Holly back up if she does
Today we sat in the Ocean (don't worry Tommy we didn't go deeper than our knees). We talked of characters and premises and realized how rare it is to be able to talk of writing with someone who understands the language.
On Friday when we leave for Maui we will be immersed. For a week and a half we will talk of nothing else.
Holly said it was like gamblers in Las Vegas?
The odds are better than even.
