Last week, I got an e-mail from a reputable publisher telling me about a crossword-related book the company plans to publish—and asking if I might be interested in being the author. Would I? Yes, indeed, I would. We haven't ironed out the practical details yet, but I've already started writing and I'm having a blast. (How much do I love telling Mr. Tangerine, "I'm working on My Book"? He digs it, too.) If the whole deal should go south, hey, I've got some content and I can always find another outlet for it (worst-case scenario: for free on a blog). And if it goes forward as planned, hey, I could see my name in bookstores!
I'm feeling terribly clever to have signed Ben up for Monday-to-Friday day camp—I don't know how I'd get anything done otherwise. I might be blogging a little less this summer, but I hope to not forsake Orange Tangerine. Poke me if I neglect to post, will you?
