I’M WRITING AN EBOOK. I would’ve gotten more done on it today, but I was too busy looking through The Most Awkward Celebrity Prom Photos of All Time. I know very few of the people featured, none of them personally, and the photos look pretty much like normal prom photos, just like yours and mine. I guess there’s just something about knowing a perfectly normal-looking adolescent went on to be famous and stunning that gives us hope. I don’t know. I was 11 pictures in before I caught myself. I got as far as Julia Roberts.
Like I was saying, I’m writing an ebook. I’ve been tweeting lines from it on Saturday mornings, just bits and pieces from each week’s progress. I’m wondering if the finished product will live up to the tweets or if, in the end, it’ll turn out that everything I had to say was pretty much captured in several dozen 140-character blips spread over a few months’ time. What if the other 50,000 +/- words I’ve written are basically fluff?
They aren’t fluff, I know. Still, I wonder this weekly. Just briefly.
In my fantasy life, I don’t wonder.
But in my real life, I do.:-)

In other news, I’ve started listening to David Brooks’ The Road to Character. Very good! I wonder if David Brooks wondered if he was saying more than he needed to. I don’t think he did, but maybe he wondered. Maybe it’s just a normal thing to wonder.
