Here’s another nice addition to anyone’s End of Summer List: wake up and put on a sweatshirt because the house is cold. I did that this morning.
I had a plot twist idea last night. A really good one. I think. Am chomping at the bit to see if it will actually work in the book, so today’s entry is short.

Im staying hopeful that the film will come out over here in England, but if you could give me some information, then that would really make my day!
I believe the movie has already been shown in Hungary and Australia. (Don’t ask me why. I have no flipping idea.) But I haven’t head of any UK plans. Does Showtime have a channel in the UK? If not, then I imagine the DVD will make it’s way there soon. If anyone out there has any more ideas about this, please chime in.
The boys are off to the woods today and the house is quiet. Outside is grey and quiet – perfect writing conditions. If I can reach today’s goal, I’m going to attack the file cabinet and then I’ll have more boxes emptied. (The office still looks like I just moved in.) I love days like this.
ADDED LATER – I forgot to say that the interview yesterday seemed to go well. The journalist, Mike Hughes, writes for the Lansing State Journal and his articles are syndicated through Gannett News (which means they could pop up in lots of papers across the country, I think). He said the piece should run before 9/5 (the SPEAK premiere), but he didn’t know how many papers would pick it up. If any of you guys see it, please let me know. Mike was really nice and he gets five stars because he actually read the book!!! (Not many journalists take the time to do that.)
But still, it was hard, maybe because I used to be a reporter. It is much easier asking questions than answering them.
