Friday, April 24 2020: After working on my uncle’s book, Second Son, for five years and searching for an agent for months, I’ve signed a publishing agreement with Touchpoint Press. That was on April 16th, and I’m still in shock. They’ve sent me a ton of forms to fill out, and there’s more to come. They’ve also asked about the sequel, Southern Woman. Suddenly, I’m back at work with real deadlines looming on the horizon. Yikes!
I’m also late on my latest homework assignments in Lisa Miller’s Story Structure Safari class, and I’d best get cracking again. This class project is developing the outline and content for a memoir, Telecommuting at Palo Verde, based on the true life adventures of my old department when we ventured into the world of working from home long before the coronavirus came into our lives. It’s time, I think.
