Closed for Easter and for writing

Dear Friends, I’m closing “The Daily {French-Italian} Cure” for seven days of Easter holiday a.k.a. “Trying to Finish Writing My Book While in France.” That sounds terribly smug and pompous for a zillion reasons—not to mention cliché—and I apologize. It’s just that I am and have been trying to write an account about moving to Italy, what it was like, and what a complete clutz I was at getting the hang of being a foreigner in a foreign land. (If any of you know anything about digital publishing, please let me know.)

I’ve been “writing a book” forever, and saying so gets old. I’d like to take it out of that horrid progressive tense and put it squarely in the past. Done. X-ed off the list of things to complete before I die. So now I have witnesses who are all entitled to say with crossed arms and cynical expressions: “So, did you finish that ‘book’?” I will also read, observe, and hopefully come back with fresh material for you all. Have a wonderful, wonderful week. I will miss you.

    In fact, I do know something about electronic (self-) publishing. There is also a wealth of useful information out there about it, especially the marketing end of it, but finish your book and we’ll talk…

    Happy Easter to all!

    Good for you. I’ll be interested in the effect of putting your intention into the virtual universe on your productivity.

    Can’t wait to see the results!
