while we slept – due to the Magical Nature of the Interweb we took tea with the charming Gallivanta in New Zealand while managing to Get Ready for what’s next (whatever that is – that’s the most delicious thing about What’s Next – it could well be Anything, really).
it might be CHINA.
(we’ve had an introduction to a conference that might just want who-we-are-in-RL to talk about Stuff-we-have-Learned and the book, of course, which would be splendid and probably sell a few copies at least).
or Helsinki. Or even Stockholm.
(we’re on some shortlists for digital events in 2014 and sort of waiting-by-the-phone in a curious-to-see-what-transpires sort of a way).
in the meantime, there’s Consulting Calls.
and sending out nice mash notes.
while “putting it out there” (as the Americans call wishing-and-hoping) that we’re ready for an Agent on this Coast (we adore our Agent on The Other Coast but she does books and we’ve also written several screenplays).
which we needed to Register (again – we had before but that was a different address and these things Lapse, apparently).
so that was jolly exciting.
we (re) Registered 4 screenplays this morning (practically before dawn) and so now we’re ready.
because we’ve learned that Not Being Ready is another word (actually 3) for sabotage.
so – basically – we’ve done our bit – now it’s time.
for the phone to ring.
and because we never actually wait by-the-phone, we booked a silent retreat for new year’s eve.
have you made plans?
