Number 5

I had recently received the first proof of my next novel titled Of Men And Maggots. I will be marking it up, correcting the usual petty mistakes - comma usage, changing a word here, deleting a word there, adding new dialogue and such. 380 pages and I am at chapter three and quite pleased with it.
It is the true story of a seven day trip me and an old lover named Juan Holguin took across the United States from El Paso, TX to San Diego, CA and the mis-adventures and odd-balls we encountered. Unlike my previous work, it is being presented as a work of fiction (though, it is not), I had changed the names: I am John Poston and Juan is now Rocko Tapia.
This has been taking up my time.

Exciting. Proofing the work you invested time into. I have never touched my own work put into published form but it sounds ... very exciting. You sound very proud with your posting and I know I speak for many readers out there when I say we are eager to read this latest creation of yours. Thanks!

Hey LB,
I like how you said "across the United States from El Paso, TX to San Diego, CA" yet you only went over half of it ;-)

Thanks, Anon. I guess that makes us both half wrong...or half right.
