Okay, so I was sitting at home thinking about my book.
Ah, who am I kidding? I was reading, while listening to my husband watch wrestling.
I was sitting there when…BAM…there’s this letter on my computer screen! Let me tell you, I was completely freaked out. I mean, I understand computers have pop-ups and things like that, but come on. Who has ever had a letter pop up from one of their characters?
I’m serious. This letter:
popped up on my screen.
After the initial shock, I read the letter. I know I haven’t worked on my book in a while, but please. I have a life outside of the computer. I can’t put my kids on hold and say, “Sorry, my characters are getting antsy and want to be freed from the mind numbing boredom of limbo.” It wouldn’t be fair to them.
After all of this, all I have to say is, “Jack. If you’re stuck, sedated, in a hospital, then how the Hell did you write me a letter?”
