I’m Still Alive

Yes, things are fine but I’m on a major major major heart attack inspiring deadline for my book. Although the babies are screaming which I think is their way of conspiring against me to finish. They are very competitive that way. Mattie’s working on her own book called “Gerber 2nd Foods – Are They Really Any Different From 1st Foods?” and Sadie is doing a proposal for hers which has the working title of “Food – Why?” I feel they are a little similar but they feel that they are coming from very different angles and the market has enough room for both. I guess we’ll see. Their creative juices really start flowing in the middle of the night which is not working out well for me since I’m a little more awake DURING THE DAY. Wish us luck.

    Glad to know you’re still kickin’…I was starting to worry that you’d run off with gypsies and left the Internet for a life of goat milking and cheese making.

    I would totally get both of their books! stop trying to stifle their creativity by insisting they sleep at night.

    The different between stage one and stage two is $$.

    Maddie would like to contribute to their genius anthology with her tome “Gaining Weight is Overrated, and Other Things Fat Babies Do.”

    Stage 2 is just a larger portion, from what I can gather.

    Good luck on that deadline.

    “Food – Why?” is beautifully short and to the point– I love it.

    I think I’ve met a couple of research subjects for her– have her people contact my kids’ people.

    Good luck with your deadline!

    my daughter’s thesis seems to be more in the field of addiction studies: food: i kicked that habit and switched to dvds.

    i think the market is big enough for all three.

    I love your books.. I am waiting for the library to get the sippy cup one in stock. I can’t afford to keep buying so many books. Good luck with the new book and I can’t wait to read it.

  19. Am I doing okay? said,

    Good luck. They have some stiff competition from me with my soon to be bestseller – Food. It’s Never Too Soon to Step Away From the Table.

    Good luck to you! Sounds like your little girls are authors in the making. Personally, I have all my best ideas in the middle of the night, which forces me to get my ass out of bed and lug myself to the laptop to get them out or else I can’t sleep.

    Ah, the life of a writer!!
