Got off to a good start yesterday. My first e-mail was from India, from a publisher that is including me in an upcoming English school textbook. The very next one came from a publisher in France saying that a copy of their new textbook (Password literature 1ere/tle) that includes me was going out in the mail. The third one was from an editor responding helpfully to a question I’d recently sent. I had lots of good and interesting conversations throughout the day, but rarely does business come in one-two-three, especially from three countries and so early in the morning.
The rest of the day was hit and miss. I took a writing pad to my doctor’s office, but he took me right away. I took it for my fourth trip to the car agency where I sat long enough to sketch in a poem that I really like, and it makes #13 in a group that seems to be growing more or less on its own. Errands later I arrived home in time to pinch out a few more words, content that all in all it had been a good day.
