Agent Backstory

        Just to catch y’all up on my agent saga, I want you to know I’ve been through three, but I believe the third one is the charm.

        My first one fired me for not being chick-litty enough.  I thought my second one was O.K. even though I was suspicious when I found out his day job was assistant manager at the Piggly-Wiggly.  When he send me a bill for a reading fee, I let him go.

       The Agent, though, is working out.  He is a writer’s agent and also an art dealer, so he spends a lot of time in New York.  He ain’t asked me for any money, and what commission checks he has gotten he’ll forget to cash for months at a time.  He reads the New Yorker and the Wall Street Journal and hob nobs around with all sorts of artsy folks, so I’m gonna try to hold onto him.

        I should have my first character back story out by Monday am.

    Now as long as you all can actually start meeting out in the open rather than all this “secret squirrel” stuff, maybe you all can get some place!

    Thanks for your comment about women’s weekend. As a matter of fact, tell Smitty that we had chocolate cobbler for dessert. It was a winner.

    Although, I don’t know about smelling better. No one showered until late in the day!

    Ms. Cindy,

    I’m gonna get it done by Jan. 1, I promise. If the manuscript doesn’t sell to a publisher, I’ll get an editor and self publish. One way or another there will be a book. It is 90% written and I never break a promise to myself or my friends.

    I had that cobbler in Mississippi. Dang good it was.

    As to the ladies in the band, it might partly be when I play music with them they are all on thier best behavior. They don’t invite me on their weekend trips, nor should they- it wouldn’t be right.
