Oh yeah, that’s coming up isn’t it?

I’m getting married this weekend and it looks like it’s supposed to snow. Who cares. The next day Becky and I will be leaving for Orlando for a week and a couple of days. We’re driving and it should be fun. I love road trips. The highway sites, the all-night diners, the truck stops, and the feeling of the open road. While I’m excited about the wedding and the following party, this trip couldn’t come at a better time.

After some evaluation and deep breaths, I was able to come down from the ledge with LUCKY TOWN. I pulled out some plot threads that were jacking the story about, and moved a few things around, and I’m only down to 63k from a high of 66k. I’m in the process of outlining what I have and what changes I’ve made and then I’m going to have to do some serious thinking. I’ll be taking my notebook and some pens with me to sketch out my thoughts and whatnot, but mostly I’ll just be trying to get some distance and perspective on this blasted book.

  1. Congrats on the impeding nuptials.

    If you plan on having a bachelor party do it at least 3 days before the wedding. That gives you ample time to make bail and still pick up the tux.

    And don’t sweat the small stuff. Try to relax and have fun. In our minds, everything went wrong on our wedding day, but we were the only ones to notice.

    Best wishes and have fun in Orlando.

  2. Have a brilliant wedding and even better honeymoon. Leave the book at home. Give yourself a break, some space, and go get married. All will be right in the world.

    Mike’s advice is spot-on. It’s all about the words you say, the vows you’re making, and nothing else matters.

    Good luck!!!
