Quote of the Day:
“It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.” –Nigel Tufnel
A pretty remarkable, incredible, letter–for one original life story–
Where do I start? “For One Original Life Story.” That was the heading of a contest I entered three months ago. I have mentioned here that I’ve been working on a project and basically it’s been a compilation of some of my better stories/essays along with a few new things thrown in. I touched up the old stuff, mailed in the required submissions mainly just to get some feedback, and I’ll be dang if they didn’t notify me today that I won. And now the stories are getting put together as a book and I get to go to New York and help pitch the finished idea to some indie filmmakers who are involved with the project. They said I could be the literary Sidd Finch. I don’t know what to do with myself; I’m just sitting here, Blankly Staring.
What a day this is!
