It's been a good week for this American in NZ...
I finished the first draft of my manuscript, here in all its glory:
I've still got a long way to go until it's ready for anybody else to actually read, but printing this out and having something tangible is a good feeling.
And then, as if that weren't enough, I saw that ELIZABETH GILBERT will be in town in May for the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival! What can this city not do? Seeing her in the program made me freak out - I'm scooping up my tickets tomorrow. Early. If her seminar is half as inspiring as her TED talk, then I'd better come prepared with pen and LOTS of paper for some serious note action.
Also, did anybody else love Eat, Pray, Love as much as I did? I didn't read it until a few months ago because it sort of passed over the UK. But I love, love, loved it and am interested to see who else shares that with me. Anybody?
Hope you guys are having some excitment this week too.
