Thoughts before pub date

1) How fleeting is “glory.” Like, A Soft Place to Land is coming out tomorrow, but I’m already worried about writing the next one…2) How cool that I share a pub date with Anne Lamott and Sue Miller, whose new novels come out April 6, too.  I’m gazing at the (perhaps pedicured?) feet of giants.3) How fortuitous I teach at Emory: otherwise I’d be pacing and anxious on said pub date; instead I’ll be listening to my brilliant students as they talk about their stories.

4) How nice to live near good public tennis courts.  When you are feeling anxious or overly excited (and I can’t imagine any writer who isn’t feeling that way before pub date,) how nice to go whack a ball against a concrete wall for an hour.
