November 15, 2010
Monday... slept through the alarm for 40 minutes... Scott missed his plane... not a great start to the week. This coming off of the weekend craft show which had it's good points and it's bad. I'm still trying to figure out whether the low point was taking some time out to go to the doctor about this UTI and having the assistant say my temperature was 105 (I'm assuming an equipment glitch - I wasn't seeing anything that wasn't there, I think I was as lucid as usual, and the doctor didn't hospitalize me), or the woman who walked away in the middle of my sentence about how much she'd like Clyde and Dr. Wai Smart even though the book has nothing to do with Fiddlebug and his friends. Oh, and I'm going to have to start wearing a name tag because for some reason all week people have been calling me Cassidy or Cassie with the exception of one person who insisted on saying how she bought a book off of "her" last year even after I explained that "her" is "me". *sigh* It will be funny once the antibiotics finish killing off the fact that I'm sick. I know it will. It's just really not right now.
I'm sharing this not because I feel like whining - although Yes, I feel like whining - but so this weeks literary goals make sense to you. I've got 2 definite signings scheduled and one I really need to verify because it feels awfully squishy to me and I'm sort of hoping it might decide to happen on a different day. I'm sticking a couple of very straightforward goals. To get well enough to not look like I have the plague and scare people off during the signings - being able to be somewhat perky would be a great thing too. I also would like to be myself during these signings - especially since I'm not currently writing under a pen name. I would like to find that words that will allow Fiddlebug's readers to accept Clyde in the interim. And lastly... I just want to be on time. Wish me luck on this journey. I think I might need it!
