Back Up Plan
If the Writing Thing Doesn't Work Out
I am always a bit frantic the week before the book release and book tour: organizing, setting kid's schedules, arranging, etc...
In the meantime, my kids are going through end-of-year exams, emptying lockers, dropping stuff ALL over the house. I try to calm our schedules and just sit with them when I can. So my son took a break from studying (that's what he calls it -- I called it staring at his Math book), and came into the kitchen and asked for a snack. I made him a killer sandwich -- toasted, melted cheese, the works.
He sat down next to me, took a bite and in complete sincerity looked at me and said, "Mom, you make the best sandwiches in the world. You should open a sandwich shop."
So there you go -- if this writing thing doesn't work out: Sandwich Shop.
It's always good to have a back up plan....
