Have you ever felt like everything was happening at once?
Like you can't slow down, or turn around, or turn around, or get past the guy in front of you?
Have you ever felt like the ball was just out of reach?

OK, I have to admit, I think this is the most hilarious polo shot I've ever taken. It was serendipity - the play slowed down, but no one told the guys in the back, and everyone telescoped together. My favorite is the horse in the middle with just his head sticking out.

I also feel like I'm in just such a traffic jam right now. I have deadlines galore, most self-imposed, but those are the most important ones. And a book to write, and another simmering in my head, and there is Calderwood Books about to launch in September (more closer to lift-off) and I have a new book coming out with Loose Id, that is a Terrific Book - and totally original. And fun. And I have to start promoting it. What am I thinking of?
Well, to tell the truth, today I was thinking about mowing the lawn, scraping the garden chairs, and so I did.

Yeah, that's a writer with deadlines, alright. :)

I hope none of the horse was hurt in that jamble.

LOL - deadline crunch is a better title, I suppose!
And no horses were hurt - they're used to the rough and tumble and this was just a little traffic jam.

Title and date of publication, please. You know that I try to keep up with your releases, when possible.

You are amazing!

Sam said...

John - you're absolutely right!

Bonita - It's "Zombie Jack" and it'll be out in October at Loose Id! (I will make a promo post, I promise!)

Wynn - I'm a Leo - so if I'm not amazing I have to at least give the impression, lol.

Consider it clearing away the non-essentials, Sam.
