I’m not feeling like blogging much right now because I’m coming close to the finish line (I hope) with my novel revisions, which looks like this: hating writing, hating myself, despising the book, considering the culinary academy, wondering if there might yet be a career for me as a bluegrass singer in spite of my lack of ability to generate harmonies, praying my new migraine medication works better than the last, etc., etc.
Every day I find an urgent reason to do some new bit of gruesome research. For instance, today I learned that, facing the imminent fall of Berlin, Joseph and Magda Goebbels killed all six of their children before killing themselves. How did I come across this charming tidbit? Why, while looking for a nickname for one of my characters, of course.
I’m a real peach to be around right now. Good thing I’ve got such a cute guy, for whom divorce would be way too expensive. Photographer Matt Hoyle’s assistant sent me this pic of the hubby today and it cheered me up. Thought I’d share.
