I've finished the second draft of Still Slightly Off the Mark: The Prequel!
Subtitle: Why I hate Cats, and Other Lies. I figured if I put in the word "lies", it would attract political junkies, even though there's no politics in it.
No, I'm still not sure what the title will ultimately be, but I have finished picking and placing photos. I chose about two dozen to go into the book, but Emily might cut a few of those, after reviewing them and slapping me around a little. Thank goodness for editors.
I've also chosen a theme to hold the book together. It's: "making fun of me". Granted, that's what I was already doing, anyway. But I've found my writing has changed much in the almost twenty years since these columns were first written. Even after making major changes in them, they still often reflect a very different time, so I'm going to poke a little fun at that along the way.
If you can't make fun of yourself, how are you making it through life?
