I had to resort to bribery to get Linda to finish a chapter today. I agreed to clean the ceiling fan in her bedroom. Hey - whatever it takes.
When we're not writing Chick Lit, we're reading it. Linda's favorites are by Lee Nichols: Hand Me Down and Tales of a Drama Queen. I'm enjoying Valerie Frankel's books. So far I've read The Girlfriend Curse and The Accidental Virgin. I just got The Not-So-Perfect Man from amazon.
I even went so far as to send VF an e-mail gushing about her genius, and she wrote back saying she could instantly tell that I was destined for greatness. Ok, that might be a slight embellishment... but we did exchange e-mail.
I think I will go do the latte/notebook thing this evening. I'm tired of this computer desk. Need some Jordi Labanda time.
