re: My Book...

I can see the light. The book will be done by the end of the week. And thank the Lord because I'm exhausted from writing it. Classes begin at UCLA on Monday (and also for Langston), and I've agreed to teach a section for an intro to screenwriting class for undergrads. That's going to be fun, and as folks say, you never learn as much about something until you teach.

I have some Icono work over the weekend, but this will be the last time that I'm so burdened with a book, Icono and school. Book done, Icono becomes really fun. I still love my job talking and writing about what I know. I have to go to Minneapolis for the all company meeting in three weeks, so that should be nice and cold. But hey, I'm an Alpha. In the meantime, I'm predicting what a lot of y'all will be doing in 2007. But I'm a bad mutha like that. I've found that I can now hear bits and pieces of conversation, internet discussions, and think to myself, 'hey self, that feels like something I should investigate.' Been getting some praise from our clients, but they don't even know. The AA section had been dead for a while before I got there, and I'm about to blow their mind with the things I'm finding.

But this weekend is going to be a BIATCH. I'm about to close the deal on the book with Red Bull, too many King Sized Snickers bars, and about 48 hours of writing straight. By Monday morning, I should be hallucinating. But hell, this is the last time that will happen. These last four months were the writing equivalent of climbing Mt. Everest. I did it, but I ain't doin' it again.

LOL! I'm finishing my interviews and I just interviewed the funniest porn actor yet. He was genuinely a funny guy. I hope it translates when I write it.
