out of my hands and mind

Well, many exciting things (okay, two and a P.S.) going on in the old twisted mind this day.

But first the writing update, because you know you are here to silently urge me on and dying to know what is up - right?

I have completed the pitch for my ‘Secret Project’ and it is in phase one at the moment. Phase one means it has been voice recorded and sent off to the powers that be. From now on, it is out of my hands as I wait for a response.

There are two responses I foresee to my ‘Secret Project’.

1) What a great idea! Yes, please this has to be pursued. My Gawd why did nobody ever think of this until now - I mean Newton, Eienstein, Hawking or even Data (you know, during their poker game) never thought such a brilliant thought or imagined such a magnificent product. Let me have your babies, make you a sandwich and wash your car for you as a small token of my undying admiration for the greatest creative writing mind this world has, and perhaps will ever, see.

2) Who the hell are you and what the hell is this piece of crap? Never - not even if you were the last living creature on Earth would I consider something so asinine and ill conceived. Away with you - in fact “ALAS NO” is about all you are ever going hear again in your writing career - you seventh rate HACK!

Yeah, my mind knows no bounds - on either side. The cold hard truth is the response will likely fall somewhere in-between. And I just know the word ‘alas’ is going to creep in there somewhere too.

But I remain optimistic, despite my imagination.


Two other quickies then plus a post script.

1) I’m still unable to get to work because the building I work in is blockaded by an angry union. You would think this is great fun . . . (no comment)

2) Tennis tonight again. As I age and my body starts to play evil tricks on me (yeah, I used to laugh at my dad when he would get muscle aches from curling or tennis or skiing when he was in his 40s) I realize this is the way of things. But I’m doing pretty well on the court (last week we won 6-4, 6-1)even if I’ve lost some speed and skill. It ain’t over till it’s over. Heck, one of the guys I play with at the club is over 80. Yes, you heard right. He may not be fast anymore but he is still pretty darn good with the racket.

P.S. - I am going to try my best to have Kaylie’s Smile in audio format for next Monday. I can’t promise, but if this blockade stuff continues I may find the chunks of time necessary to do a good job.

Until next week, when I may know the fate of the project, tonight’s tennis scores and if I will ever be returning to the cubicle from hell (no comment).
